The Truth Serum Mom was started with the aim of giving a totally honest and funny account of motherhood to give parents a blog they could hopefully relate to and laugh at during their (sometimes stressful!) parenthood journey. Producing this blog involves me writing about a wide variety of topics related to motherhood including pregnancy, childbirth, the post partum period, weaning, useful products for parents and babies and much more. I am also a qualified doctor (MBChB (hons) University of Leeds 2012) training to be an anaesthetist and therefore I have some knowledge of the more scientific side of certain subjects as well.
I am keen not only to continue producing entertaining posts, but also to share useful and quality products with my readers/followers where possible. If I think that your products will benefit my audience then I am committed to spread the word about them. If you feel that your brand/business would be a good match for my blog then please feel free to contact me by visiting my contact page here. Alternatively, you can also drop me a DM via my instagram account @the_truth_serum_mom. I am happy to feature brands with which I am collaborating both on my blog and on my instagram account after discussion. I would love to hear from you if you are interested in discussing potential collaborations with me.
If you are interested in asking me to write anything for your blog or website I am also open to discussing writing as a guest blogger or writer. Again, please contact me via instagram or email as discussed above.

VETRA sports is a company offering merchandise targeted at runners, volleyball players, swimmers and soccer players. The brand was established in 2012 and its mission is to provide customers with the best value for money. The team is currently working to expand the VETRA collection. I was kindly gifted a volleyball from VETRA and it has come in handy when trying to get my fitness and figure back post partum as it has meant I am able to mix up my workouts and add in some volleyball for fun. The kids love playing with the volleyball too. You can visit the VETRA website by clicking here.
