Welcome to Made to Mum, a parenting and lifestyle website written by me – Cliona! Thank you for taking the time to come here and have a read.
I have been blogging for years, and there is a slight chance that you might recognise me from my other passion www.basementbakehouse.com where I blog about food and recipes! Made to Mum is my new baby, launched when I discovered that I was expecting my first human baby. I wanted a special place to talk about all things pregnancy, mum and family over the coming years!
For a long time my little family was made up by me, my amazing partner of five years Robert (R) and our two crazy french bulldogs Loki (2 years old) and Freyja (1 year old), but in February 2019 we welcomed our baby boy Bodhi (Baby B) and our family truly became complete.
2018 was our craziest year yet as we not only added a second dog to our lives but bought and moved into our own house in the Oxfordshire town of Abingdon, and of course got the exciting news that we would be expecting Baby B. Needless to say, life has been hectic but we’ve loved every second of it!
All of that, combined with my love for chronicling the ins and outs of my life, meant that I needed somewhere to share my daily finds, activities, thoughts, struggles, successes and worries, and that’s where Made to Mum was born.
I blog full time as well as working as a Digital Marketing Consultant, which gives me the freedom and flexibility to work alongside being a mum. I’ll be keeping you posted with everything… whether it’s learning how to be a working mum, sharing my breastfeeding journey, updating you about Baby B’s milestones or sharing the useful things we discover along the way!
