About Best For Mums

Best For Mums has been helping parents since 2005 as a Facebook group before finally converting into a website in late 2017 by Maggie Jones and Samantha Davenport. Maggie and Sam have been friends for years and both became mums for the first time in 2005 – the both of them enjoyed learning all about motherhood and would share their experiences with other mums and mums to be in their small North West facebook group for 12 years before taking the plunge and creating their very own website.

Best For Mums is a portal to read and share interesting and informative articles to do with parenting and everything else in between and now has authors from all over the country from all different walks of life.
