Why I started the Imperfect Mum

Well Hello! and Thank You for checking out my very first vlog.. Sorry for my absence, I have had a few things going on.
Anyway I’m BACK!!… Im talking about why I started The Imperfect Mum… as you will see I have a face of makeup on andhad just been to the hairdressers.. SO HOT!!
In Summary:
I used to often (and sometimes still do) compare myself to other Mothers… but the funny thing about the whole “comparing” thing is that I think we all compare ourselves to each other and think ”wow she’s got it together”… and the sad fact about that is “she” probably goes home and cries in silence because she doesn’t feel quite adequate herself…
So hence the reason why The Imperfect Mum was born.. I wanted their to be a safe place where we could all connect and be honest about this beautiful thing we call Motherhood.
Thanks Girls!!! MWAH xx
Ps Special Thanks to the Amazing Gemma from My Big Nutshell… I LOVED her first Vlog so I thought I would give it a go too!


About the Author

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.

Cheers - bit of fun!!


SO gorgeous! - I've never looked that good with no make-up & a top-knot - damn you! hehe :o)

The Imperfect Mum

Ohhhh ThankYOU!! xxx


Love your work Kristy. You are right about debunking the myth of perfection. It doesn't exist, so why are 'we' chasing down perfection when it's not attainable? Finding ways to do what works and be happy and have good mental health is a better alternative. Aiming for perfection can drive your pursuit of happiness in the opposite direction. xxx

Yep your so right!! Imperfection certainly DOES NOT EXIST!!! The more we embrace that the better off we will all be....

I want to thank you for your honesty. I don't have children (as you know). I feel very blessed that most of my friends do...and the majority are honest & upfront with their journey. You guys are making it real xo Thank You

Hey kristy, I've only spoken to you once ( about the "fake facebook woman/ business" that turned out to be a mutual friend!! Haha) I hope you're feeling better!! Your doing great things for women everywhere !! :)

Hi Kristy, Love this idea!The more I do mothering the less I seem to know how to do it! or is this the sleep deprivation talking? Each day brings new learning experiences that are truely amazing and challenging and rewarding.
