Being a new mum is not easy. as part of the emotional roller-coaster you will be feeling down sometimes - and when you do, it’s important that you talk about it. don’t keep all your feelings to yourself.

Sometimes you just know it's time to take a leap of faith!
time to do something for yourself time to be a little bit selfish even maybe.
time to start something new for you.

November dates for emotional wellbeing workshops at @do.it.like.a.mother_hq in westcliff-on-sea, essex. .
by popular demand, i am offering evening dates in november. .
what is this?!
motherhood - it’s hard work, right? we spend most of our time worrying about everyone else, and forget to look after ourselves. it can leave us both physically and emotionally drained. ever wish you could find ways to “top up” your emotional health? well then you’ve come to the right place.... these sessions focus on ways to improve and protect mothers’ emotional wellbeing and increase psychological resilience in the postnatal period. .
when?
a series of three workshops:
tues 13th november, tues 20th nov, tues 27th nov; 7:30pm-8:45pm. .
each session will cover information and tips on building emotional resilience and wellbeing, with slightly different content and exercises in each. the sessions are designed to build on each other, so new information and skills can be expanded on and consolidated. as the sessions are designed to work together, you would need to be able to attend all three. .
how much?
£30 for all three (nearly four hours of content!) .
how do i book?
dm me for more info

Such a lovely, warm monday morning, after all those wet weather forecasts we had 🙄 we worked our thighs and bottoms hard with a lot of lunges and squats, alongside speed walking heart raisers. you all did fab girls! and all smashed that last hill with ease 🏔🤗 .

My friend @drlaurentober teaches restorative practices that i talk about in my book the postnatal depletion cure. in these modern fast paced times, we all need to be incorporating these practices into our lives somehow. especially mothers, who are so tuned in to responding to the needs of others, but less so the needs of themselves. committing to a restorative practice is being open and committed to receiving self-love and filling up your own cup too. -

#mumspirationmonday jemma from @nourish_mama_london 🙌
.
.
this week my mumspiration is jemma from @nourish_mama_london . jemma is a fellow nutritionist, mama to 3 chickpeas and very talented chef. .
.
jemma’s meal delivery service is a delicious and nutritious godsend to new mums across london. as a trained nutritionist, jemma knew the importance of a good diet during the postpartum period for recovery, breastfeeding, sustaining energy levels and supporting my mental health. however, after the birth of her first child she found the demands of motherhood whilst keeping on top of preparing nutritious meals a uphill battle. so a few years later jemma started the nourish mama food delivery package to help other parents in a similar position.
.
.
all of her meals are freshly home-cooked, wholesome and nutritious. i’m very tempted to move back to london just to get my chops round her delicious dishes… 📸 check out her seasonal south indian roasted squash, aubergine & red lentil stew. nom nom nom! 😋😁
. .
share the love...who is your mumspiration monday? .
.
who have been the wonderful mummies who have inspired you or put a spring in your step this week? it’s great to start off the week with a bit of inspiration and celebration of awesome mums. .
.

The healing power of the breath. for mothers who are overwhelmed and don't know where to begin - the breath might be the most powerful place to start. a long even exhale is the most accessible way to calm the nervous system and activate healing in the body. try it as often as you need it, lying down for a few cycles at a time - count 4 in, and 7 out, or try your own ratio. but make sure the outbreath is longer than the inbreath.,

Another brilliant day at the #integrativehealth #gestationaljourneysummit 🤰
today was all about optimal nutrition for preconception & pregnancy, maternal mental health and pcos. this is so important as so many women today face these issues. 🤰
i discovered some wonderful practitioners and educators in this field that have inspired me to learn more and hopefully develop a speciality in this area. it was also fun to meet up with a couple of my old cnm buddies and it was another beautiful food day! 🌈🍍🥑🥦🥒

From a recent post from @brenebrown - which has really stayed with me. this was a poster she had hanging in her office for many years. -
the things that have stayed with me are 1. the profundity of the poster itself, the power of this intention to unite for the higher good. -
and 2. the power of using / displaying clear and uplifting purpose driven statements. the place in-between inspiration and tension that can be so fueling for our motivation and drive!!! let us unite - grassroots, non-violence and connection based! -

At cossham birth centre this weekend with some amazing birth workers and doulas learning from mark harris @birthing4blokes on how to better support clients that might be holding uncomfortable feelings around their birth experience. in a safe and supportive space using relaxation and the 3 step rewind technique we can gently release some of the intense feelings around the experience. if you have a birth story you’d like to explore in a gentle way i’d love to hear from you. i will be offering the 3 step rewind method to two clients as a case study opportunity. please get in touch or share with someone you feel could benefit 💜

Don’t let the autumn weather effect your training 🍂🍃🍁🌿there is no such thing as bad weather; just inappropriate clothing! 👚👟remember layers and waterproofs, to make sure you’re prepared for any change in weather. we all know how quickly the wind 💨can turn to sunshine ☀️and the sunshine turn to rain 🌧..... don’t let something minor like the weather deter you! and most of all ..... never underestimate a buggyfit mum! 🌸
monday 9:30am & tuesday 11am @ palm bay, margate. pm for details .

💕did you know that today is international day of the girl... established by the un “to highlight and address the needs and challenges faced by girls while promoting girls’ empowerment and the fulfillment of their human rights”. •
💕a beautiful reminder that regardless of our own privilege and opportunity, we still live in a world where almost half our population is often not afforded the same rights just because they were born female. •
💕it is not only a job for us women, but our boys & men too, to keep working towards a world where opportunity is not dictated by your s*x (or colour, race, sexuality, religion, or age). •
💕while we love any opportunity to shine the light on and support our sisterhood, we still cross our fingers that one day in our lifetime, we may not really need today💕💕#thisgirlcan #girlsrule #sshealth

Listen for the ‘help’. it’s not always easy to say or easy to spot in that ‘strong’ person who has it all together, the friend who has slipped a little out of reach lately or the new parent who is finding the days long and lonely and the nights even longer. i know what it feels to be in a crowded room and feel utterly alone.
i’m here for anyone struggling or feeling ‘different’ and if i’m not the right person i’m here to help you find someone who is. 1 in 5 women will experience mental health illness during pregnancy or in the first year after childbirth but only 15% ever receive treatment, usually due to lack of awareness.
with this month marking not only mental health awareness but pregnancy and infant loss awareness there’s never a more poignant time to look out for one another.
so often i hear people say ‘i shouldn’t feel this way; i’m so lucky/blessed’. guilt or shame gets in the way of speaking out but the way we feel shouldn’t be about comparisons, it’s about connections. you’re not alone, it’s okay to admit that a pregnancy that you’ve longed for is not enjoyable, to finally take your baby home from nicu and feel totally overwhelmed or to admit you don’t feel okay for no particular reason you can pinpoint.
help is a big word for four small letters. i encourage everyone to ask for it and to offer it. xx

thank you @charliemackesy for creating such stunningly emotive and relatable images.

you were given this child because you are who they need. you have the soul to love them even on the hard days. you have the love and motivation to give this child everything she needs. you have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, even when you're exhausted. you have the smile she craves and the touch that makes everything okay. you are her sunshine and her comfort. you are hers and she is yours. on the days you are questioning yourself, remember this. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #worldmentalhealthday #mentalhealthawareness #postnataldepressionawareness #postnatalhealth #postnatalwellbeing #postnatalsupport #youareenough #strongmama #findyourtribe #motherhood #parenthood #honestmotherhood #mentalhealthmatters #breakthestigma
