It’s great to be an NW8-mum.

My name is Karin and I am the mother of a lovely little girl who was born in 2009, and a boy who was born in 2014. I am married and live with my husband in the wonderful part of London that is NW8 and St John’s Wood.

I am quite active in our neighbourhood. Becoming a mum has opened so many new doors to me and I am constantly meeting new people. It is quite wonderful! Some would say I know almost everyone, and this has happened since I had my daughter.

After I had her, I started organising coffee mornings and doing what is now the NW8-mums website, but back then in a very unofficial way. Many of my friends urged me to turn it into a website, so that I could share it with many more, and a few years later, here we are. I hope you like it and find it useful.

The information on NW8-mums is based on my own experiences, and in cases of experiences of others there will be a note to say so. Always speak to your GP, health practitioner or other professionals if you have questions or concerns about something.

However, having a support network is important, and having gone through a huge amount related to pregnancies, miscarriages, postnatal depression (PND) and pregnancy depression, bereavement, etc, I am happy to be a listener should you want to share something with me.
