Hi! I’m Steph – mother to Ash (4) and Jade (1), and very happily married to best-daddy-ever, Jack. I’m just an ordinary gal living in Chicago who likes watching sport and drinking beer with the boys! I’ve always been fascinated with nursing and medicine, but to be honest, I was never passionate enough to consider it as a career option. Instead, I studied Journalism and have worked various writing gigs most of my life. I think if I had my time over, I’d do Sports Science, but that’s a story for another day!
I don’t know why, but I’ve also always been fascinated with pregnancy, childbirth and everything to do with babies. Like most every new mom, I quickly found out that being a mom is tough work, and my career has taken a back seat for a while. But the itch to write is still strong and I’m finally feeling like I can fit some regular writing into my days!
This blog is my chance to share what I’ve found out during my pregnancy and early parenting journey. It’s partly so that I don’t forget! We’re hoping to expand the family in future, so it is good to have notes to look back on. Admittedly, very public notes!
I hope you find something useful here, and please ask questions or share your experiences – I’d love to hear from you!
Lots of love, Steph
