Open and honest conversations about motherhood

Welcome to Motherhood Truths

Motherhood Truths is a platform and outlet for women to be wholeheartedly honest in their joy and struggles of  motherhood, and allow others to find comfort and reassurance, and hopefully some helpful information along the way!

About me

I’m Shirin. I’m mother to my 3-year-old son, Aren. I love my son with all my heart, but motherhood is hard, challenging and anxiety-inducing at times, at least for me. And I want to talk about it!

Motherhood Truths is an opportunity for me to lay it out there, honestly and openly. My story might not be yours. Which is why I want other mothers to share their experience too.

The good, the bad and the ugly! Because the greatest gift (or reassurance) you can give to another mum is honesty.
