About Ashlee

The Motherhood Project is made up of a series of ventures to get mothers talking a little bit more honestly to each other, to make PND more acceptable to talk about, to accept that motherhood is hard work and sad and mundane as well as rewarding and fun, to make motherhood more natural, for us women to trust our bodies and our instincts.

The need to talk honestly about motherhood is strong, so women are empowered, united, and don’t feel so alone for feeling how they do. With ‘mummy wars’ raging and the media racing to pit parenting styles against another (think breast/formula!), its time to adopt a more supportive approach.

The writers at The Motherhood Project have united to create the collaborative and supportive environment we want to see more of! We parent differently, we have different beliefs and values, yet we are all great parents raising awesome families.

The Motherhood Project is about taking down the brave face we mothers seem so determined to put on. It’s about meeting the needs of our children (sometimes at the expense of our own needs) so we can raise healthy, secure children. It’s about looking after ourselves so we can be the best mother/partner/wife/daughter/sister/co-worker we can be.
