If you don’t know already – I’m a sponsored vlogger for Channel Mum which is YouTube’s first community of vlogging mums – it’s all about presenting the honest face of parenting. From the good and the bad bits to everything in between.
Since I’ve been vlogging for them I’ve found a whole new world of lovely mums and people sharing this crazy old parenting journey. I’ve made loads of new friends and have found a space where I can have conversations about things and share a little bit of my world and my life with twins in a safe space – hopefully offering advice to other twin parents and mums to be.
So far I’ve vlogged about my mix feeding story, my birth story, my experience looking after the twins on my own, how it feels to be a new mum and lots more. And I’ve really loved being able to give myself some time and space to reflect on my transformation from Ursula to Ursula the mum.
Motherhood is the most incredible thing I’ve ever embarked upon, it teaches you more about yourself that you ever knew and is just such an amazing way to make sense of life, the world, the future and the past… it all comes together in the spotlight of being a mum.
Channel Mum has introduced me to other women from all walks of life, other vloggers who are sharing their own stories, and I feel I’ve learnt so much from all of them. From seeing how the other mums deal with their toddlers to the special moments and individual challenges and triumphs in their lives. Everything from conception to adoption to IVF and raising a family is covered with honesty and a genuine wish to help other mums.
Right now there’s a real buzz on the channel because, well, it’s Christmas! And the lovely Giovanni Fletcher has turned on the Christmas lights at the CM Shedquarters! What’s more every day in December there will be a fantastic new video from the Channel Mum vlog team who will be showing everyone lots of great ideas on how to feel extra festive this season. Just search the Channel for #vlogmas.
