As well as her experience of motherhood, Grace has also been open about her own experiences of mental health problems including her experience of PTSD as a result of her traumatic coma after testing positive for Covid-19 and delivering her son Cyprus two months early. She is an inspiration and true survivor.

mumsonaroll8 of 20

Molly Gudger @mumsonaroll

As a disabled woman, Molly got a lot of pushback regarding her decision to have children. So, after having her son Oscar, she started her own Instagram account dedicated to how her family adapts their lives and how she manages as her son’s primary caregiver. While she’s recently shared a post that she’ll be taking a step back from the ‘social influencer’ arena, we’re looking forward to continuing to follow Oscar and Molly’s journey through parenthood!

Serena Terry @mammybanter

Mum to a six-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter, Serena was introduced to TikTok during lockdown by her daughter. Her down-to-earth, 'tell it like it is' realness resonated with fans around the world and her posts quickly went viral. We love Serena’s "truth bombs" which remind her followers that life isn't perfect and it's OK to feel insecure at times.
