Crummy Mummy

Buy my book!

I’ve got a confession. It involves a fifth baby (although not of the human variety!), a secret I’ve been keeping and have been dying to tell you about, and 46,921 words. I’ve written a book! An actual book with actual pages and you can order it now!

Confessions of a Crummy Mummy – The Baby Years is published by Filament Publishing and is available to buy right now in paperback and on Kindle. I can’t believe I’m writing this but here’s the actual link on actual Amazon!

In a nutshell, it’s a telling-it-how-it-is parenting manual featuring all the things they don’t tell you about the first year. Chapters are split into confessions on everything from lady bits and sleep (or lack of it!) to weaning and washing – and what happens when you accidentally find yourself doing it all in the middle of a global pandemic. And if you’re a regular follower you’ll know giving birth in the middle of a global pandemic was not in the birth plan!


“A tell-it-how-it-is mum must read. An acutely honest, sharp, witty, and perceptive dive into the realities of modern motherhood. A light-hearted and comforting reminder that we’re all in this together.”

This book is for you if…

  • You had a lockdown baby
  • You didn’t have a lockdown baby so can laugh and breathe a sigh of relief
  • You want the truth about the first year
  • You like a giggle
  • You sometimes feel like you’re doing too many things and none of them well
  • You lost yourself in motherhood but also found yourself
  • You need to know we’re all in it together


What people are saying

“A joyous account of becoming a mum of four that every parent will be able to relate to. It’s full of laughter and love but doesn’t shy away from telling the sometimes brutal truth about pregnancy, childbirth and parenting.”
