As mums, we are privileged to experience the rollercoaster ride of motherhood.
The ‘ups’, the ‘downs’ and the‘in betweens’.
The love, the laughter, the tears and the shouting. Those precious moments of pure joy, thosegut-
wrenching moments of terror, those ‚why me?‛ moments of despair ... and those frequent ‚banging yourhead against a brick wall‛ feelings of frustration!
And, of course, the kisses and cuddles and snuggles and hugsthat make your heart almost burst with happiness.In all this, we know, deep down, that motherhood is the most amazing journey of our lives. In a recentMummo
 survey,
95.8
% of mums who responded to the question “Are you glad you had children?” answered
with a resounding ‚yes‛!
 Which makes it all the more tragic that many women have their experience of motherhood cut needlessly short.Did you know that pregnancy and childbirth are the biggest killers of young women of reproductive age in theworld today? No? Neither did I until I discovered theWhite Ribbon Alliance
 and found out about the
shocking statistics on maternal mortality. Having spent far too much of the last five years moaning about theeveryday challenges of motherhood, I suddenly got a great big kick up the backside! How dare I complainabout something I was so lucky to be doing?
I decided to see how I could help ... and the result is ‘
 , a joint initiative between the
 and
.
 
It’s all about harnessing the
enormous power that we possess, as mums, if we act together. Collectively, I believe we
can
change the world.
 
And it doesn’t take much.
 
Two minutes and a couple of quid ... that’s all.
A million small gestures add up to agigantic impact. Please turn to page 62
to find out more and get involved.
This first ever
mummo
mag
is concrete proof of what we as mums can achieve, individually and collaboratively.
 
It’s taken just a couple of weeks from having the idea to making it happen.
Every single bit of the magazine
has
come from a mum, and between us we have created something that, hopefully, will be enjoyed by lots and lotsof other mums.
In it, you’ll find examples of the huge variety of of skills, talents, knowledge and expertise that
we have. From the mum who adopted three children from the other side of the world ... to the mum who isgearing up to leave her husband, kids and business (temporarily!) to go on the trip of a lifetime. From themumpreneurs ... to the mummies who blog. From journalist mums to designer mums. From fit mums to bendymums to imperfectly natural mums. From us to you, with love.
Happy Mothers’ Day!

to this first ever online editionof

celebrate Mothers’ Day and the
launch of a very exciting
campaign ‘
