Monique McGoey-Rabone, Founder
Monique is the founder and publisher of The MotherHood. Canadian-born, she spent 10 years working in the music industry as a talent agent and an event producer for global brands before becoming a mum. After relocating to London, it was time to switch from the fast-paced world of clubs and concerts to uncovering the best hangouts and things to do for parents instead. She lives in west London with her husband and daughter.
Elisa Freeling, Content Editor and Strategist
Elisa moved to London seven years ago from San Francisco, where, in pre-children days, she was the managing editor at Sierra magazine. She lived in Brook Green and Notting Hill before settling in Chiswick, where she lives with her book-loving daughter, train-loving son, and thickly moustachioed husband.
Angela is a Jersey girl who has been living in London since 2007 when her Swiss-American husband was transferred for work across the pond. You can follow her at Lattes and Juice which showcases kids’ and mommys’ fashion, child-friendly London , all of her travels and latest obsessions.
Jessica is a new-ish mum living in and loving west London. She’s likely to be seen drinking coffee in Chiswick or on the Askew Road and most places in between. She also relishes escaping when she can – particularly to her native Cornwall. She lives with her husband and, as of March 2012, little girl ‘Scrip’ (not her real name, they’re not that cruel).
