Thanks for visiting Betty and the Bumps!
My name is Beth: I’m mum to Gwenn and wife to Andrew. The three of us are squeezed into our little terraced house in Newcastle, which is currently having a bit of a makeover (you can read all about it here if you like!)
Despite being the least maternal person on earth for most of my life, I am now pretty obsessed with all things bump and boob. I first decided to write this blog after encountering every breastfeeding problem under the sun (okay, that might be a slight exaggeration) and if by sharing my experiences I can help just one person then I will feel like I have accomplished something.
I’d love to think that some of my stories might help other people feel as if they are not the only person going through what can be – and let’s be honest here – a rubbish time, when everybody is telling them they should be enjoying every second of it.
I’m also very interested in all things hair and beauty (not so much make-up, haven’t got time for that!) and trying to work out how exactly to look stomachable post-pregnancy/childbirth/breastfeeding/excessive chocolate consumption.
Also, don’t forget to visit me here: Pinterest
