About Jamie

Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit Parent Patch! I want to provide an honest and insightful account of my parenting journey in the hope that it may inspire others. I will also review things that I love relevant to parenting.

I want to give my readers hope from my own parenting experience; I also appreciate that we are all on different journeys and I want to be sensitive to yours so please also share your thoughts and experiences.

So a little about me… I grew up and reside in Melbourne with my husband and 2 children. My daughter was born in early 2015 and we just welcomed a son into our family in late 2017. Prior to becoming a mum I worked as a dietitian in a large paediatric hospital, so yes I love children! There are many things that I enjoy; being with my friends and family, singing and dancing with my daughter, cuddling my newborn, dinner dates with hubby, the beach (my girl has always been a water baby), walking with my kids in the pram, sewing, a captivating book (time permitting!) and of course good coffee.


My journey to becoming a parent wasn’t textbook, but I am now very grateful to experience so much joy and know a love that I never thought was possible. It’s still not always easy but I wouldn’t give it up for anything.

I hope you enjoy reading about my experiences and share in my triumphs and struggles.

Love Jamie xox
