Are you a new mum, pregnant, planning to be? Then this is a community created for you. In our community we explore our pasts and the deeper aspects of ourselves to support us to become the parent we truly want to be.

Join us in The Roots of Motherhood Facebook community.

So how can you plan for something as unique and unpredictable as bringing a new human into the world?

The simple answer is – the secret to becoming the parent you truly want to be lies in your past, in the roots of your story.

The most important factor in the way your child feels about themselves and how they relate to others throughout life, is their relationship with you, their parents, in the 1st year or two of life.

This leads us to the understanding that the way you relate to others and feel about yourself in your adult life is closely linked to your first and most important relationships, with your own parents.

While most people don’t remember being a baby, what we do know is that a baby’s relationship with their earliest attachment figure, usually the birthing mother, is where their core beliefs about themselves and how they relate to others are formed.

By exploring your own childhood, your past relationships, your values and core beliefs you can begin to create a framework for your future parenting or what I call your ‘unique roots of motherhood story’. By creating a story that supports you to understand how your past will impact on your future parenting experience, you can begin to grow your confidence in following your instincts with your baby, understand what you will find most challenging about the transition to motherhood and how to remove any obstacles that could get in the way of you becoming the parent you dream of being.

I’m really excited to support you to become the parent you truly want to be.

If you are pregnant or trying to conceive and would like to explore these ideas in a supportive environment, come and join me in my free Facebook community ‘The Roots of Motherhood.’ In the group you can expect to further explore the concepts I have discussed here, connect with other like-minded mums and be supported towards becoming the mother you truly want to be.

I would love you to join us.
