I’m Christina, and I live in South London with my husband and our two children who are 3 and 1. I work in film & TV and have spent the last 15 years helping people tell stories in one way or another. When I became a mother I felt rather lost and invisible, and I wanted a way to tell a story of motherhood that was honest, funny and cut through the perfection often portrayed by society and the media. Because let’s face it, none of us are really skipping through lavender fields every day with our well-behaved, endlessly smiling children!
One day in a haze of potty training and chicken pox-fuelled cabin fever I had an idea. Baby milestone cards are great but what about all the things that happen in between the firsts? And what about us, the parents? How do we chronicle our own experiences of parenthood? And so the concept for This Mama Does cards was born - a fun and honest way to share the good, the bad, and the downright exhausting moments of parenthood. Because parenting isn’t all high days and holidays, it’s the every days in between that really count. So whether you want to tell the world that SHIT JUST HAPPENED, you’re SPONSORED BY COFFEE, or that it’s WINE O’CLOCK, there’s a card for you!
Since starting the business last summer I’ve launched 5 ranges of milestone cards - BUMP, BABY, KID, DADDY and HOLIDAY, and also a range of Greetings and Christmas cards too. I’m immensely proud of my products and hope they draw a smile and a sense of solidarity about this parenting lark! The response I’ve had to them has been incredible and I love seeing them in use - from the Mamas on nights out, to the poomaggedons, toddler tantrums and sleepless nights.
This Mama Does, not this mama can or this mama will, This Mama Does. Because all mamas do incredible things every day for the little people they love. Sometimes they just need wine as well.
