I’m Steph and madrelingua is Italian for mother tongue.

This website you’ve stumbled upon is my little safe place. A pacifier of sorts helping sooth an anxious mother-to-be in the late, rather-late and very-late stages of pregnancy – and indeed in very-early motherhood – Madrelingua is an attempt to capture the innate language, behaviours and lessons of parenthood.

We’re not really sure where it’s all going but we’re enjoying the ride nonetheless.
