Another month; another gang of lovely Channel Mum vloggers May 21, 2015 by Tony May Our little family of Channel Mum sponsored vloggers is growing nicely, with a continuous stream of applications coming in each month. This month we’re very excited to share the four new mums who we’ve selected to join our merry team of vloggers: Alice Young: Alice, aged 21, is mum to Amelia. Like another of our vloggers, Isabel Brandon, Alice fell pregnant whilst at university. She’s raising Amelia as a single mum and says: “Families come in all shapes and sizes and mine happens to be a young single mum living with her parents raising her own daughter. It’s amazing to see the bond Amelia has with her grandparents grow and we all live a happy (most of the time) life together. I would love to show that it is ok for your family not to be a dictionary version but being different still means you can do just as much.” Sophie Notarbartolo: Sophie works as a maternity assistant and breastfeeding support worker at Bournemouth Hospital and is mummy to baby Theo. Before she started a family, she had a pressurised job in a bank and feels that becoming a mum gave her the direction and fulfilment that was missing in her life. We’re excited to welcome someone who looks after other mums as her profession – Sophie’s mantra is: “We are the parents! Trust your gut, you know your baby so you do whatever you need to whenever…” Emma Bailey: Londoner Emma has two children and enjoys making the most of everything London life has to offer to her family. She’s a stay-at-home mum and wants to use her vlog to show other parents that they are not the only ones who have to deal with tantrums in a restaurant! Lucy Aitken Read: 32-year old Lucy upped sticks from the UK and moved her family to a farm in New Zealand when her second child was born. Lucy is an expert in natural beauty and writes a magazine column on the subject, as well as being a proponent of attachment parenting. She wants her channel to be very practical with lots of hands-on tutorials, presented with humour and tapping into everyone’s inner earth mother! A big welcome on board to these lovely ladies, who we will start working with a little later in the summer, when they will each receive their Panasonic camcorders. Oh…and if you haven’t yet subscribed to our YouTube channel yet, now is a very good time to do so as there will be LOTS of exciting goings-on over there very soon!
