About Me

This is me, Penny, a thirty something mummy to Bump.

I always wanted children. I know it sounds corny but I felt that it was my calling. Birth of a Mummy originally started as a way for friends and family to follow my pregnancy journey. Since Bump’s birth in the summer of 2017, the site has evolved into a parenting lifestyle blog. If you are interested in working with me, you can find more information about my site here

A little about me…I live in Berkshire with my husband and our son, Bump. We live in a little house which we are slowly trying to put our mark on. We occasionally have a dog living with us {Maisy and Elsa will, no doubt, feature on the blog at some point}. I am a Warwickshire girl at heart, it was my home for 30 years, but we moved to Berkshire for work and I love it here.

I love horse riding, champagne {I couldn’t wait for my first sip after the birth}, South West France, trashy television {Made in Chelsea is my fav}, Joules clothing, yummy food, John Lewis, Studio Gibli films and sunbathing in lush locations.

I am married to W. We met years ago on a well-known dating website, although we had mutual friends, so arguably we should have met years before.  He tells me he was once a half decent track runner {apparently he used to race Mo Farah} but given his lack of running now I am not quite sure ;-). 

Bump arrived in our lives in summer 2017. I had a miscarriage in 2016, so when we found out I was pregnant it was rather surprising. Bump’s birth was anything but straightforward {see here for his birth story}. You can read all about Bump’s life in my monthly Life with Bump updates.

I hope this blog will be really interactive. I am not going to make motherhood seem sexy and glamorous, I will be honest. Hopefully we can have a real giggle as you join me on my journey to being a mummy. If you would like to contact me then please do e-mail me. You can follow the Birth of a Mummy on Facebook and Instagram but the best way to keep up with the site is to subscribe to my weekly newsletter here.

It is great to have you here my lovely, please do stick around!
