I am a fully qualified freelance journalist specializing in baby and parenting features. I write regularly for the national parenting website Emma's Diary and for the shopping blog at www.baby-moon.eu. I have written features for various parenting publications, including The Green Parent magazine, Take A Break magazine and thebabywebsite.com. I have a son called Leo, born in June 2010, and draw on my experiences as a mother as well as the network of young mums I have made since his birth in my writing. Recent work includes articles on placenta encapsulation, grandparents as the new generation of childcarers, tongue-tied babies, establishing sleep patterns, dream feeding, baby’s development in the first year and breastfeeding cafés.
