This is a fundraiser for The Neonatal Trust and we are extremely grateful to Emily Writes for her support in making this happen.

A special gift for a recent mother, a mother to be, or just someone who likes a good read and a good laugh?

'Rants in the Dark' - From one tired mama to another is must-have for all new parents and parents-to-be. Popular blogger Emily Writes gives words of encouragement to sleep-deprived parents everywhere.

With two small boys, both non-sleepers, Emily finds herself awake in the wee small hours night after night. Her writing is often done then, and she offers her own often hilarious and always heart-warming experiences to other exhausted parents. She describes the frustrations as well as the tender moments of real parenting, as opposed to what you thought it was going to be like, or what well-meaning advice-givers tell you it should be like. A must-have for all new parents and parents-to-be.

Emily's blogs have been wildly popular, as have her on-line columns with The Spinoff Parents, The New Zealand Herald and New Zealand Woman's Weekly.

*** Reviews ****
"I cried as much as a I laughed out loud. Emily has a way of vocalising every wish, hope and frustration as a parent, so much more eloquently than anybody else. ‘Always Our Babies’ puts in to words the bittersweet experience every parent simultaneously loves and dreads at the same time – our children growing up."

"Rants in the Dark is going to become my go-to baby shower gift from now on."


This is a fundraising auction for The Neonatal Trust, helping them to deliver their support to families going through the stress and anxiety of a neonatal journey.
