About Ne and MyBump2Baby
I am Carla, a prosecco loving 31 year old, married, unmaternal, mum of one. Just days before I had my s0n I had just qualified as an Accountant. I had no idea that my life would change so much since having my little boy. I have always been a fun loving, fairly confident and happy person so when I suffered with postnatal depression I wanted to raise awareness that it is ok not to be ok! I decided I wanted to create a place for mums and dads to come where they can read my humorous yet completely honest blog about my experience and feelings as a new mum so that they didn’t feel alone.
MyBump2Baby soon became an even better resource to parents after I began turning up at too many classes that were out of date after searching baby groups on Google. As a mum struggling with my mental health getting out the house and facing people was hard enough without turning up at classes that don’t exist. It was at this point that I decided enough was enough and I didn’t want any other parents to have to go through what I did and I decided to add an up to date directory that covers all pregnancy – pre-school related family businesses, classes and events and less than two years on we now have over 15,000 listings.
In addition to our website we also offer reviews on products, days out, holidays and services to help parents make the right decision when it comes to spending money. We now offer advertising opportunities within our popular directory for nationwide online businesses.
We launched our app version of the website in October 2017 and we have recently introduced our “Favourite Blogger Section” which is home to over 120 of the UK’s best bloggers. The main aim of this section is to help bloggers by increasing their traffic figures and offering brands and businesses the chance to work with them. We also help parents by bringing them useful blogs because lets face it – what parent has time to read a book?
We have recently been awarded “runner up” in Sage and Peter Jones’ quest to find the UK’s most ambitious business.
My main aim for MyBump2Baby is to make it the one stop shop for all new parents. I want to help connect more parents with business owners and bloggers.
