The votes are in and the Mother&Baby Mum List 2023 is here! This year the list of 20 brilliant ‘mumfluencers’ includes parents from across the world, experts, mums in the spotlight, mums of multiples, foodies, fashionistas and fitness enthusiasts.
These mums use their platforms to tell their stories, give expert advice, support other mums and raise awareness on topics like premature birth, maternal mental health challenges, breastfeeding and toddler development.
As well as being amazing, being a mum can feel lonely and overwhelming at times, which is why many of us turn to social media to find mums we can connect with. Mums who make us laugh, make us cry, remind us that 'oh, it's not just me!' Mums who we can learn from, get inspired and feel supported by. This is why we made the Mum List, a chance for you to shout about the mums who make you feel great about being a mum and for you to find out more about the mums you might not yet be following.
Our fellow parents have voted for their favourite influential mums who they feel create a safe, honest and uplifting space on social media.
So, give our list a look and if there are any names you aren't familiar with, we encourage you to give them a follow...
