Welcome to Honest Mom

Hi there, and welcome to Honest Mom®, a blog and community for real, down to earth women. Scroll down to read my latest blog posts!

So… how’s this blog different from all the other mom blogs out there?

1. On the blog you’ll not only find parenting articles and other good stuff, but lots of mental health advice and support, too. Back in 2012 when I had postpartum depression (PPD), I couldn’t find any online resources for advice or support — so I started my own!

2. Honest Mom is a blog AND a community. The community extends to Facebook, including a private group for parenting and mental health support.

3. My goal isn’t to make gobs of money or become a famous blogger. My goal is to offer a little safe space on the internet where you feel no stigma, no judgement, and you never feel alone.

Welcome again — I’m so glad you’re here!
