All blogs must be written in the first person (not by a brand or company)
Style: plenty of compassion, showing that you understand mums and what they are going through (typically our writers are parents themselves), plus some practical tips and advice that can be taken away from reading the blog (things you can do immediately)
Our readers are mostly UK mums, from new mums to mums with children up to around 10 years old who are busy, overwhelmed and interested in self-care and wellbeing
