We’re always on the hunt for new stories, experiences, specialist opinions, and expert guides, so if you’ve got the goods, we want to hear from you!

Write for Peanut

What we’re looking for

Every day, we publish all kinds of articles, guides, and personal stories on the Peanut blog.

We’re talking everything from trying to conceive to pregnancy symptoms, periods to PCOS, motherhood to menopause ‒ and everything in-between.

So, if you have a story to tell, you’re an expert in fertility, pregnancy, parenting, or menopause, or you have some tips you’d like to share with our Peanut Community, you’re exactly who we’re looking for!

Sound interesting? Here’s a snapshot of the type of content we’re after:

  • Pregnancy
  • Motherhood and parenting
  • LGBTQIA+ fertility, pregnancy, and parenting experiences
  • Women’s health stories (PCOS, periods, and periods, to name a few)
  • Menopause
  • Trying to conceive (including fertility treatments such as IVF and IUI)
  • Surrogacy, adoption, and fostering
  • Sex and relationships
  • Mental health, well-being, and self-care
  • Neurodivergent and disabled perspectives of fertility, pregnancy, motherhood, and menopause
  • Mom guilt and mom anxiety
  • Making friends as a mom
  • Pregnancy loss
  • Breastfeeding, pumping, formula, weaning, and baby/toddler feeding
  • Labor and birth (including home births, water births, induced labor, and C-sections)
  • Postpartum life

But this isn’t an exhaustive list!

If you have a story or article you want to share with the Peanut community that isn’t on this list, we’d still love to hear from you.

Our writing guidelines

Not sure where to start?

Here are a few pointers to get pen to paper ‒ or, well, fingers to keyboards:

  • Our ideal minimum word length is around 600 words. Don’t have a full article yet? That’s fine ‒ just get in touch by filling out our form below. We’re not able to accept articles that have already been written at this stage, so it’s best to have a chat with us about your topic first.
  • Give credit where it’s due ‒ we all take inspiration from everywhere, and that’s great! But if an idea is not your own (or you’ve referenced someone else’s idea), give them credit for their work.
  • Write as if you’re talking to your best friend (but try to keep it clean!).
  • Use hi-res images (PNGs or JPGs) and videos, and please send these over separately.
  • Use well-sourced facts, figures, and data where possible or relevant. The numbers don’t lie!
  • We won’t accept content that’s been published elsewhere ‒ we’re all about that originality.
  • Team Peanut will read through and edit your post, to make sure we get as many eyes on it as possible, and to make sure it reads well, so please don’t be offended if there are some small changes!
  • Once you’ve sent your article to Peanut, in any format, including any text, images, graphics, or video, you’re agreeing to allow us to publish and distribute it to our audience via our websites, social media platforms, and other third-party media platforms.
  • Feel free to shout about your expertise! If you have a business that’s related to your chosen topic (and you have the chops to back it up), tell us all about it.
  • It helps to write to a specific person, so pick someone who would be part of the Peanut Community and talk directly to them ‒ a first-time mom, a woman who’s trying to conceive, someone who’s just found out they’re pregnant, or a woman who’s starting menopause (to name a few).

We’ll let you know the moment we’ve published your blog post so you can let everyone know your words of wisdom are live on the Peanut blog!
