Mumspo is a resource of creative inspiration for mums started by me, a mum who was on maternity leave for the first time.

Each Monday I will (aim to) publish a new interview with an amazing mum.

As I prepared for maternity leave for the first time plenty of people warned me that I’d get pretty bored if I just stayed home. They knew me well, and they were right. So I started to look around at other mums and the creative projects they got up to on maternity leave, and then as their kids grew older. I found a lot of inspiration, but I also found these great stories weren’t gathered in one place. And so Mumspo was born.

Creativity as a mum can be something as small as planting a seed right up to launching your own business. We all know that creating an entire human person is creativity enough, but if you’re a little bit like me, it helps to see that someone, somewhere manages to not just get washed and dressed by mid-day (a major achievement) but finds something great to do with their time.
