The Mummy Bubble offers practical tips and hacks to parents of babies and toddlers, reaching more than 100,000 parents a month. This website was written to provide encouragement and a helping hand to mothers. The book has been a long time coming and is my way of offering all of the very best advice for surviving baby’s first year plus words of encouragement for every stage. As a person who struggled with the early months of motherhood, I know exactly what it feels like to be lost in those early weeks. The Mummy Bubble book is about providing you with the confidence to face challenges and the knowledge that you are definitely not alone.

The Mummy Bubble; How To Survive Baby’s First Year is the ultimate book for new Mums and new Mums-to-be. It is honest & informative as well as heart warming and entertaining. Vicky’s no BS delivery of Mummy truths will leave you inspired and confident and give you a few giggles along the way too.
