Collecting and sharing stories of motherhood from around the world
Did you know that it is normal for children to go to bed after 10pm in Uruguay and mothers are encouraged to breastfeed until babies are 2 years of age? In the UK a more common bedtime might be 7pm and breastfeeding is often completely finished sometime within the first year. In Iceland, it’s not unusual for babies to spend nap time wrapped snugly in their pram outside in sub-freezing weather.
Despite what some experts say, there are as many ways of mothering as there are mothers. A “one size fits all” approach to parenting usually ends up fitting no-one! In fact, most mothers tell us that what they find most helpful is simply hearing about what other mothers do.
Our aim is to gather the experiences of real mothers from around the world and put together honest and informative books and articles to show you what other mothers from other countries actually get up to.
In order to do this we need your help. We would love you to get in touch if you have a story to tell. We’re interested in anything from a normal humdrum day in your life, to life-changing insights.
Together we can create a simple, positive, and compassionate space where mothers feel valued, enlightened, and loved!
We also want to share information with you. We will be writing articles that are international, topical and we hope, useful to you. Please share these blog posts on facebook, twitter and with your friends so we can spread 101mothers love around the world!
If you have a story to tell or would like to write a guest post then please get in touch! 101mothers are keen to support international mummy bloggers who have something interesting to say.
