… I just love Midwife Clemmie Hooper’s blog, Gas & Air, and new book “How to Grow a Baby and Push It Out.”
I can’t remember how I found Clemmie, aka Mothers of Daughters on Instagram, but I do remember loving her feed instantly. She has four daughters, two of which are twins, and she keeps it real. (A much-needed breath of fresh air in the world of social media.)
We didn’t make the march today due to various illnesses but we were there in spirit so here’s to all the amazing women (and men) who made placards, braved the cold packed streets of London today (and 62 other cities around the world) 🌍you are all amazing ✌🏼✌🏼💪🏼👩🏻👱🏻♀️👧🏼👶🏼👶🏼 #womensmarch #girlpower #equality #lovetrumpshate
And how fantastic is her style? And her girls are so flippin’ gorgeous!
As the aunt of 8 little (and not-so little, anymore!) babes, and former au pair and nanny, I have been lucky to have a front row seat to motherhood, a safe distance from the ring, but close enough to have had my fair share of sweat & tears splattered on me. (Is this boxing metaphor ridiculous or what? No regrets.)
What I really love is how honest and raw she keeps it, all the while expressing how important motherhood is and how rewarding it can be. And, while I’m not at that stage yet, I do know that when that day comes I’ll definitely use Clemmie’s book as a guide.
Motherland’s, “Expecting the Unexpected”
Alex & Alexa’s, “Family In Focus with Clemmie and Simon Hooper of Gas & Air“
And, of course, her husband, Simon aka Father of Daughters, is worth a follow as well — his posts never fail to make me laugh.
