Becoming a parent for the first time is exciting, joyous, scary and a huge step into the unknown. First-time mums can find a lot of official advice, but here is a new mum sharing her experiences of the reality in a touching and amusing way through her entertaining and honest poetry.
Following the success of the author’s Facebook page ‘What they don’t tell you about being a Mum’, to which Jayne still uploads a poem most days, here is a selection of the poems from the first year of her baby’s life.
Her message to mums is clear: Nothing prepares you for becoming a parent, it’s OK not to be OK and, most importantly, we are all in this together. Enjoy.

Jayne has expressed herself in poetry from an early age. She is a trained teacher with a Bachelor's degree in Early Years and a Master's degree in Teaching and Learning. However, she feels that nothing could have prepared her for the challenges of becoming a mum. After a very complicated pregnancy and a birth that put her in intensive care, Jayne and her husband, Rich, welcomed baby George. To support her recovery and emotional well-being, Jayne turned to her often amusing and sometimes poignant brand of poetry to share the everyday joys and battles of becoming new parents.
