Our Story

Mother Lode UK was born out of a place of frustration. We all know that being a Mama can take it out of you, and although we may love it with every fiber of our beings, sometimes we just NEED A BREAK. We all see the insta perfection that is clean and tidy houses, always happy children and images of fun crafts, pristine flat lays, and mums that have it all together. Well, Mother Lode UK is here to show the real side to motherhood. The side of us that need the extra coffee, countdown until bedtime and get completely fed up with always saying no. I’m Sam, mama to Scout and Lumi. I created Mother Lode UK to get a little bit of me back. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a stay at home mama, but don’t you just sometimes wish that people could see you as someone other than mum. Recently I’ve been inspired by women who don’t hide behind the insta perfection, and I wanted to share a little bit of how we all feel.

On this little corner of the internet, you can find blog posts about a plethora of subjects. From the highs and lows of parenthood to veggie hiding recipes that you can (try) and feed your toddler when all else fails. If you have something you would like to share, be it a suggestion of a subject or a blog post of your own, please email us at hello@motherlodeuk.com.

You can also purchase some of your very own frazzled mum merch in the shop tab above. We have a selection of tees, sweats, and mugs currently on offer. 

From one parent to another, I hope you can find a bit of comfort in this little community. I created Mother Lode UK as a place to come when you don’t want to feel alone in this, sometimes very harsh world of bringing up small people. Feel free to comment and share as much as you like. Interact with others and maybe even make a few new friends. We’re all in the same boat. Stressed, tired and downright frazzled.
