What it means to be an Imperfect Mum.

When I first became a Mother it was such a shock to me. I seriously had no idea that I would find it so overwhelming. All I could feel was such a deep dark feeling of anxiousness. I was completely and utterly overwhelmed. I could hear this voice in my head telling me how hopeless I was. This baby deserved so much more, it was like the walls were caving in….

– It was a very scary time – I will NEVER forget that moment. I also found myself comparing myself to other mothers thinking she has it “so together” I know have come to realise that “she” probably goes home and cries in silence because she doesn't feel quite adequate herself either.

Those feeling are the reason I created The Imperfect Mum. Recently we decided to talk to other Imperfect Mum's about their story and what it means to them to be an Imperfect Mum.

Kristy Vallely is the founder and Creator of the Imperfect Mum.

Kristy believed there needed to be a place that women could go to. Where they could talk and relate. A place they could feel safe. A place they trusted. So The Imperfect Mum was born in June 2011. There was obviously such a need that when the gates 'opened' a huge flurry of women followed. Kristy has always been very passionate about women and the issues they face.

Her passion and determination has helped her carve out a career helping others and creating 'a go to place' for women from all around the world.

Awesome. You have shown us through your page that we are not Imperfect Mums. We are all normal Mum’s going through normal feelings and situations and we are not alone. Through your page you have made me realise that all Mums and Dads are Super. Thank you so much for that xx
