Independent print magazine supporting life after birth.

by Amy Rose in

After struggling with her postpartum life, Amy Rose created The Fourth Trimester in 2015 as an outlet for real mums to share their motherhood stories with the aim of supporting other mothers going through similar experiences. The Fourth Trimester is a print publication, blog, and online community dedicated to supporting life after birth. 

Each issue contains a collection of honest stories of motherhood as well as interviews, poetry, photography and stunning illustrations. We launched with 1,000 copies of issue 1 but increased that to 2,000 for issue 2, 3 and 4. We offer an infinite number of digital downloads via our online shop. In 2016 we also launched a mini mag for dads – The Fourth TriMAN.

All articles are written by parents, real life human parents who want to share their stories to help other parents feel better during their fourth trimester. It's real, it's honest, it's gritty. 

The magazine is currently run from Amy's home, and any funding would go towards a much needed storage / distribution solution and help towards the increasing printing costs.
