When Emma Marks, founder of Mums Lounge (and Managing Director of Mum Media Group), made her foray into motherhood, like many new mums, she turned to the internet for parenting information and advice. What she found there though, surprised her.
“The information was very sterile and I felt as though I was viewed differently now that I was a parent. It was almost as if my life was now expected to revolve solely around my children. I felt as though I wasn’t expected or encouraged to have any interests of my own outside of bringing up my family. I found it very frustrating. I felt like screaming “I’ve had a baby not a frontal lobotomy!”
In 2010 Emma decided to create a lifestyle website for the women of Australia that addressed this, and Mums Lounge was born.
