Welcome to Mental Parentals, a family lifestyle blog with a Cumbrian twist!  I’m Steph and I live in Cumbria with my husband, A, and our two boys; O born August 2011 and Q born March 2016.

This is us…

Me and Mine - October 2016

I started this blog as a place to gather my thoughts during a bout of postnatal depression (PND) following O’s birth.  When Q was born almost five years later, I was worried that I would similarly suffer with another bout of PND.  Having this blog as an important focus in my life, as well as my family and friends, has definitely contributed towards my success in maintaining a healthy mental state.

My blog is my online journal, a place to record photos, stories and memories for our children and us – to look back on as they grow, develop and change.  It has also become a place where I can share experiences, learn from others and make new friends.  You will also find news and opinion pieces on topics that I find interesting, reviews, competitions, and guest posts from others in the blogging community.  You can also check out where I’ve been featured elsewhere.

Grand Canyon – November 2015, 22 weeks pregnant with Q!

Steph – loves food, musicals, relaxing (when I have time!) and exploring the world.

A – loves comedy, good wine and making memories.

Beautiful boys – Disneyland Paris, October 2016

O – loves football, making friends and chocolate.

Q – loves laughing, the Hokey Cokey and bath time.

If you would like to know more, or you would like to discuss working with me on a blog feature, please do get in touch.  You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ and YouTube!

Thank you for reading!
