Channel Mum YouTube Pro Creator

Hey you lovely lot! 
If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know that I started off this ‘online’ journey on YouTube with weekly updates of my pregnancy.
I have always been a fan of YouTube back to when Mia Rose and Esmee Denters would film remarkable covers of songs and upload them.

It always inspired to me start making videos and I never did I was too shy – well not until 2011 when I found out I was pregnant with my little caterpillar. I found the YouTube mum’s community, mainly mad up of American’s (Of course they always find the good things first) I absolutely adored The Eades Family & Laura and Layton (both of which no-longer VLOG unfortunately) and I thought I could give this a go and plucked up the courage to do so. 

My very first YouTube Vlog at 21 weeks pregnant below: I had nothing but my laptop webcam & an external mic. To edit the video I used Windows Movie Maker – You got to start somewhere guys!



And I haven’t really looked back since then – I’ve taken quite a few breaks over the last couple of year. Life can be up and down and you don’t always want to film or you simply don’t have anything to film (My life is pretty boring most of the time) but I do love sharing it with you guys as long as you want to watch. If you havent subscribed yet… what are you waiting for? Its FREE!


This brings me to my brand new venture with the new YouTube network channel ‘Channel Mum‘ – The Honest Face Of Parenting.

Channel Mum YouTube

I found them on twitter one morning, applied and was accepted to become one of their PRO creators which totally blew me away. I always say I’m just a little fish in a BIG ocean so it’s really nice to be accepted to be part of such an amazing  new community.

One of the first videos we made was a #MeInThree.

We had 20 seconds to describe ourself  in items – Watch and see what I choose. I thought it was going to be easy but it was so actually pretty difficult. What would your three items be?



Channel Mum was Founded by Siobhan Freegard OBE, who previously founded the UK’s biggest parenting website, Netmums.
