We're Laura and Amy

Amy - Your Little VIllage
Laura - Your Little VIllage

Two Mums, each with two young children. We have both been there and still are! We both joined NCT and made some great friends and learnt the basics about the birth, but we found there was so much more we needed. We needed support as Mums and a place to turn to for advice in all areas. Parenthood is about much more than the birth and first few months. So, we decided to create this village for parents to navigate parenthood.

Our Six Pillars

Being a parent is learning about strengths you didn't know you had, and dealing with fears you didn't know existed.

Why did we set Your Little Village up? 

Amy's story

I’m not sure what I expected for motherhood for it to come natural perhaps? It didn’t! It was hard and I found myself sometimes looking in the mirror at someone I didn’t recognise!

Most people say that after the birth of their first child the first few weeks are the best of their life - in some ways for me they were the hardest! Grace didn’t feed and from those very early days I felt like I’d failed as a mum…almost 7 years later and I still often can’t shake that feeling!

Myself and Laura have talked about this so many times over the years that there’s not enough support out there for new parents! There’s so much to do, no manual to run by, so much pressure, so many decisions to make, and so many what-ifs. And where do you turn? I soon realised that the friendships I formed along the way were my saviour! It’s why we’ve created your little village - we want this to be a community that is there for everyone through the good and bad, raw emotions and all!

Bringing together expert advice and knowledge along with support from fellow mums! Whether you’re a first-time mum navigating this crazy new life or a mum about to return to work wondering how the hell you will do it! We are here for you every step of the way!

Laura's story

When I first became a new Mum in 2014 I had no idea what to expect. Nobody warned me about the lack of sleep, the impact having kids has on your relationship and friendships and the awful toddler tantrums! But we made it through alive to have a second child just over two years later. That hit me like a bus! Having two boys under 3, the eldest whom didn’t sleep in his own bed until he was 6, was draining!


My mental health suffered, and my marriage suffered. When I was going through some therapy when my youngest turned 6, I realised that I hadn’t coped that well with the change into becoming a mother and I hadn’t had the support I needed.


I’ve always spoken to Amy and other friends about how good it would have been to have all the right advice, from the right people, in one easy place. And to have a community of other parents to bounce ideas off. We’ve created that and are so excited to share it with you! I wish we had this when I first became a Mum and hope we provide that village of support that each and every one of us needs.

We've decided to create this village for parents to navigate parenthood. It is a community and support network with other parents and advice from industry experts. It's real life, with real advice and no judgement. It aims to be a one-stop shop for parents and carers to get advice across so many aspects of parenthood with access to the community and the village that we all really need. We can't wait to welcome you to our little village!
