So I thought I should get this internet thing up and running.

My name is Laura, I live in a smaller city along the coast of Victoria, Warrnambool. We have the beach, whales and wind… Lots of wind. I am 19 and I am a proud mother to one precious little boy, Alexander. I am currently studying and I hope to one day be a qualified Nurse and Midwife.

My pregnancy was the best surprise of my life and it was an entirely new world. There is more than one brand of pram, what?! I have navigated through all of this with the support of my friends and family which is invaluable. Along the way I have picked up some funny stories and experiences and I wanted to share some of these.

I have also come across a lot of judgement and misinformation. Which is frustrating when parenting is such a life changing topic.

So I guess what I am saying is that I hope to have some fun, get some ideas from you listeners and get some information and support out there!

Tune into Grown Ups on SYN Nation, Sunday at 2!

P.S You won’t see any photos of my son around, this is deliberate and a part of my parenting choice, however I pinky promise he is real and steals the microphone enough to prove this while we are recording!!
