About Us

Hullo and welcome!

Make, Do & Push! is an award-winning UK parenting blog set in the beautiful East Riding of Yorkshire. Written by Hannah, MD&P! is all about life in the wilderness of Motherhood. Whether you’re expecting your first child, or you’re old hat at parenting, I hope you’ll find something here that’s relatable and that keeps you reading.

Hannah (Writer / Photographer / Tea Drinker)

Hannah is an award-winning Blogger, Photographer (In the Den Photography), and Mum. Although born and bred in Sussex, she currently lives in East Yorkshire with her Husband Nick, their daughter “Busby” (born December 2012) and their son “H-Bear” (born June 2015).

Hannah started writing Make, Do and Push! back in 2012 as a way to document her journey into the wilderness of Motherhood. It was also a way for her to continue her passion for writing post-grad.

She has recently won a Northern Blog Award for Best Instagram Photography (September 2017) and was a finalist in the Parenting Blogger category. She was also a finalist in the Photography category at the National Brilliance in Blogging awards in 2017.

Hannah loves the colour yellow, a strong cup of Yorkshire Gold with a large slab of cake, and spending her days taking photographs.
