I'm Emma and welcome to Isabella and Us! I am wife to my husband Chris, who has been by my side for ten and a half years, mummy to Isabella and to our two fur babies, Pippin and Luna.
I set up Isabella and Us when Isabella was 4 weeks old and she is now 21 weeks old and growing so fast, I can hardly keep up!
Before getting pregnant I couldn’t find suitable milestone cards and the ones I did find where just to big to carry around in the changing bag.
After having Isabella I found the transition into being a mum tough and so Isabella and Us. was born. I wanted to help other parents celebrate the small wins and to promote positive wellbeing in parents too. All of the milestone cards are business card sized and come in a handy plastic box so that they are safe from wet clothes and poo explosions.
I have received so many lovely compliments on the milestone cards and messages from mummies that they have helped! This really means the world to me!
Isabella and Us. is registered as a Mind fundraiser and 10% from a selection of our products goes directly to Mind to raise awareness of mental health.
I also host a Twitter hour on a Wednesday 8-9pm where we chat all about being a parent. #winningasamummyhour
I believe that celebrating the positives rather than focusing on the negatives has a massive impact on our mental health and wellbeing. Being a parent can be really tough and once that little one arrives your life changes so much. But taking the positivity out of situations by realising that you should be focusing on what you have achieved not what you haven't allows you to control your own feelings much better. You own this! You've got this!
Let's get sharing and celebrating those Mummy Small Wins!
I hope that Isabella and Us. continues to grow so that I can continue to share and promote celebrating the small wins and promoting positive wellbeing in parents.
