Popular vlogger Jessica Avey created a YouTube video discussing her experience as a step-parent and how things changed when her baby was born. For parents from non-traditional families, social media has become a valuable resource for sharing their experiences. This vlog looks at one mom's experience as a step-mom to a young boy while pregnant with a child of her own.

In her video titled 'Being a Step Mum,' Avey describes her experience as a step-parent from the time her partner's son was very young up until the time she has a son of her own. Noting both the challenging aspects and the joys of being a step-parent, Avey provides an honest account of how it feels to be a parent before even giving birth to her own child.

As the nuclear family unit becomes less common, parents from all different kinds of families are using social media to share their experiences and learn from others.
