I am Siobhan, creator of The Baby Boat Diaries. I am a mother, a feminist, a gentle parent and an early years professional. I live in the East Midlands with my partner Luke and our children Aoife, who is three years old and Cassius who is one year old.
I started this blog shortly after the birth of my eldest child as a way of sharing my parenting journey. What began as a parenting blog has evolved into so much more for me. It is an outlet for me to express how I am feeling when life becomes completely overwhelming. In April 2016, I began to notice my hair falling out. This lead to a diagnosis of Alopecia in November 2016. Following the birth of my second child I was diagnosed with Post Natal Depression. I am currently still on medication for the depression but every month I feel an improvement.
I currently work in early years education something which I am very passionate about.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and happy reading!
