This March, we’re celebrating Mum & More month. We know that becoming a mum can change your world entirely and whilst that’s often an incredible change, many of us feel lost or forget who we are.
As part of our International Women’s Day celebration this year, we asked you for your stories and experiences surrounding gender stereotypes, bias, and how you challenged perceptions of women and motherhood.
“Imagine a gender equal world. A world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that’s diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women’s equality. Collectively we can all #BreakTheBias.
Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.”

The following submission comes from our customer Natalie, who shares her experience with postpartum depression, and how her support network has allowed her to regain her self-esteem.
“Having my second baby during lockdown and having a second C-section was terrifying, however, nothing prepared me for the postpartum depression that followed. Luckily with the support of friends family, and various charities including Mind, Homestart, and Maytree I am now on the road to recovery and starting to regain my self-esteem and confidence in being a mother to two beautiful baby girls.
I feel blessed for all the support I have received and look forward to supporting my community in the future.”
Thank you for sharing your personal experiences with us.
