Big girl pants

Oh, readers.  Do we have a belter of a post for you today.  From the one and only Katielase.  You’ll know her as the “cake-baking science nerd triathlete” (as I once described her).  I don’t know many women who won’t feel this post touch the most uncomfortable parts of their insides.  It’s brave, it’s honest, [...]

The end of one journey and the beginning of another

To be a parent is to essentially be responsible for a whole other life – you know it won’t be easy all the time but that’s ok, because you’re in control. Aren’t you? Despite that enormous responsibility, or perhaps in spite of it, there is very little you can actually control as a parent. The [...]

On not being ‘normal’…

This is a beautiful and honest piece of writing from a wonderful reader who would prefer to stay anonymous today. She was worried about ‘upsetting’ people, but I can’t imagine that something as well thought through and from the heart as this post could upset anyone. It’s posts like this that make me proud to be a [...]

My Story of A Miscarriage

Today, we have something different for you on AOW.  Kim has asked us to share her experience of miscarriage.   Kim’s story is a long one, much longer than the posts that we usually run on AOW.  We felt, however, that to cut too much of Kim’s post risked masking the story itself, the context [...]

The Shameful Secret of Crisis Pregnancy Centres

Sometimes a story breaks in the UK that doesn’t get a fraction of the coverage it deserves.  This, to me is one of those stories. Whatever your view on abortion, there is no doubt that the vast majority of women who seek them are vulnerable, in need of unbiased medical advice and, often, emotional support. [...]

In defence of crossfit…

I love posts like this, passionate posts that challenge assumptions and defend the things they love. Laura writes brilliantly about something that has inspired her and pushed her to challenge herself, I don’t think you can argue with that, even if the very idea of it makes you want to hide under your duvet cradling a [...]

Silence

I don’t want to say too much in this intro, there’s very little I could say that will add to the perfection that is this piece of writing about heartbreak, silence, grief and hope and love. Fee’s writing is never anything less than perfect, even when she is in the midst of unimaginable pain and [...]
