Mums Matter

July 30 @ 11:30 am 1:30 pm

A 2 hour circle space for mums (along with their babies) to replenish, rest, be cared for and connect with other mums.

This gathering will have different nourishing practices (such as gentle restorative yoga, guided meditation) and opportunities for Mums to share their experiences on motherhood. Tea/coffee and chocolate included.

This is for you if you:

  • Have a baby aged between 6 weeks and 12 months.
  • Are interested in attending the 4-week Minding Mum circle and would like a taster session. Also open to previous attendees of Minding Mum, mums who can’t commit to Minding Mum, and Mums who would like a once off meet up.
  • Want to feel less alone and isolated in your motherhood experience.
  • Want to focus on your own self-care, to soothe your nervous system, re-fill your cup and release.
  • Are longing for a compassionate and supportive community of like-minded mothers to share your experiences.
  • Are craving for a safe space to unravel the emotional, physical, social, psychological changes in becoming a mother.
  • Desire a space to acknowledge and validate the enormity of what actually happens to women as they become mothers.

What to expect:

  • The circle revolves around two pillars of motherhood; the importance of connection and importance of rest.
  • Like with any challenge in life, the ability to have safe, honest, real conversations is crucial with supporting our emotional wellbeing. This is no different with motherhood. There will be opportunities to share your experience of motherhood (if you wish to).
  • There can be a lot of overwhelm and pressure from the demands of the mother load so there will also be several opportunities to rest your mind and body through different nourishing restorative practices such as gentle yoga poses, and meditation.
  • A reflective space to safely explore and unravel your motherhood journey.
  • Grounding practices such as meditation and mindfulness to bring ease to your nervous system.
  • Supportive and gentle restorative poses to promote deep rest and re-balancing (suitable for beginners and adaptable for all bodies).
  • Opportunities to chat and connect to be listened to and held.
  • Tea/Coffee and snacks.

Why I’ve created this space:

Attendees from Minding Mum have expressed a longing for extra meets up after they have finished the 4 weeks.

It is something I would have loved during my own Matrescence journey; to be held and seen among a group of mothers to safely share my experiences of motherhood and who were currently navigating this also.

Throughout my own Matrescence journey, I felt that there were very clear guidelines/maps for my baby, but none for me.

All aspects of my identity changed and continue to change. I had no idea how to make sense of these changes or how to support myself. The old ways of supporting myself no longer fitted into this new life.

I also felt extremely depleted especially during my recovery post birth for several months that all the naps in the world weren’t enough. I needed something more to help replenish. I needed a space to restore my frazzled nervous system, to be nourished, for myself to be mothered.

I feel that there can be a lot of focus on our baby’s needs where the mother’s needs may not be prioritised in the same way.

Mothers are also newborn; as a new version of themselves is born also. Mothers also need to receive, be held, and given space every bit as much as our baby’s need and deserve.
