I’m Alison, lover of boybands, cheese and babies (not necessarily in that order).

Some of you may be familiar with my work. I’ve documented the blurry nights of being single through booze-fueled posts on Ratchet Safari, and was proud to influence the new generation of fan girls with Ali Won’t Shut Up. These days, my life is less about ticket pre-sales, and more about remembering to take my prenatal vitamin.

If we’re meeting for the first time, it’s totally cool. In a lot of ways, I feel like I’m just meeting this side of me, too…



My world changed in July 2017 when we found out we were expecting. At roughly 4 weeks along, I was given plenty of time to prepare, but mostly to freak out. This has been an amazing, unforgettable experience, but it hasn’t always been perfect.

Pregnancy and parenting isn’t always easy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be POSITIVE. I’m not a professional, a doctor, or even a mother (yet!), but my goal is to connect through relaxed, real, and (possibly) relatable experiences. Your Mama Say is a place for all mamas, the rookies and the MVPs, the bumps and the big kids. We’re in this together.
