“It is about time we started being honest about pregnancy and parenting – about how heart breakingly challenging and overwhelmingly beautiful it is”

Lauren, aka Canberra Mummy, is an Australian based author. She’s a self-confessed perfectionist that laughs her way through parenthood realising that being pregnant and having babies makes you, ironically, a less than perfect parent, and a far from perfect perfectionist.
