About me


I'm Amy Ransom. for the last four years I've written the Surviving Motherhood blog.

I've had three babies and each time has brought with it its own, different challenges.

The doubts for one, because every baby is unique. The amnesia where I've found myself saying, 'I'm sure I didn't feel like this last time?' (until someone reminds me I did.) And always the huge feeling of responsibility that comes with looking after a new life.

So I created this, The New Mum's Notebook. To help new mums navigate those first 12 months of motherhood. I hope it supports, inspires and entertains you so you can get through today and enjoy tomorrow.
