Monica

Hi mom, thanks for visiting! I am Monica, proud mom of 2 beautiful girls and author of the mom blog Conquering Motherhood. Giving birth to my second daughter was one of the most wonderful and empowering events of my life. That’s what’s inspired me to start this journey and share my story with you. Also, being a mother of a baby and a toddler, I know mom’s life is not always easy. Finding comfort in knowing you are not alone has always helped me. So, I’d like to pay it forward and share with other moms what I have learnt along the way. Here you will find tips, suggestions and recommendations on how to tackle motherhood.
