If You Need Help

As I begin posting at Wannabe Real Mum I am all too aware that there are mums out there who aren't coping with the reality of motherhood. Whether it be the day to day grind of caring for new babies, demanding teenagers or any age in between. It could be relationship issues, financial difficulties or health problems. I don't only want to be about offering a laugh and commenting on the everyday. I know the reality for some is no laughing matter.

If you are not coping, there is always help out there. Please seek it.
