Prep for Motherhood, 6 week group course

Birth is not the Destination;  meet others and prepare for life as a Mum - £295

STARTING SOON - register your interest below

We all know someone who has recommended attending antenatal classes, a way to make 'mummy friends' or gain ideas on what to expect about breastfeeding or birth....  But what if we told you there could be more...!!

Let us help you prepare for beyond the arrival of your baby. 

So many of us focus on birth planning, labour  and the physical needs of baby...  Though not much (if any) thought is usually given towards how baby's arrival will affect us... the family dynamics, our sence of self or indeed the impact upon everyday life!

This course will give you important insight upon the realities versus expectations of Motherhood (societal and our own internal expectations).

Meet others at similar stage of pregnancy to yourself and start to build your village of support (partners welcome too).

Mum-ing It Online

Mama Rising Signature Support

Mummy Me Time 3 month's Personalised support - £349

This programme is centered around helping Mums re-establish their self-identity and worth, creating a little balance in their life and allowing them to view themselves through a much kinder lens.

For many, becoming a Mother is undoubtedly the most incredible, life altering experience ever imaginable.  Our children become our world.  In the split second that they arrive, everything changes.  They become our main focus, our life purpose (quite rightly so)... but does that mean we have to lose connection with our self or our personal needs, wants and desires?? 


The 6 step Mama Rising™ programme of support is the essence behind why Mummy Me Time was founded. 

Developed by my incredible teacher and mentor, Amy Taylor-Kabbaz, I am proud to be one of the first and few accredited facilitators certified to provide this powerful insight, worldwide.

First coined by anthropologist, Dana Raphael (1973), Matrescence gives meaning and explanation to the complex range of feelings we experience during Motherhood.

"Matrescence is the complete transformation of a Woman as she moves through motherhood- psychological social, emotional, physical and spiritual." 

(Amy Taylor-Kabbaz)

Just like adolescence talks of the significant life transition a teen goes through when becoming an adult, Matrescence describes the process that a Woman experiences as she transitions to and through Motherhood.

Dr Aurelie Athan, the world leading Matrescence expert, explains "Words create Worlds, when we have a lack of language and don't know how to articulate our feelings, it makes the process incredibly difficult.  We need words to heal."   

This programme is centered around this one little word.  MATRESCENCE.  The one little world that means so little to so many, yet has the ability to completely revolutionise your view and perspective on Motherhood.  I am so passionate about sharing this insight with others, my hope is, it will impact them the way it has me. 



 


We will talk through the definitions of Matrescence, the wisdom this knowledge can unfold and allow you space to work through your own journey.

 

Becoming a Mother is a transformation; when a baby is born, so is a Mother.  The birth of a baby takes days, the birth of a mother can take years...

You are going through something. 

It is not just in your head.  

It is profound, and it is on many levels*

Working with this programme has changed my life and that of my entire family's.  I owe so much to this incredible little word and the magnitude it has on perspective.  If you find yourself a little lost in motherhood, unable to look up from above the mum-guilt and business... I urge you to consider makinf this investment for yourself and your family.

You can buy now or feel free to schedule a call with Gemma below to discuss in more detail.
