WELCOME TO THE MINDFUL MUMMIES!


We are Polly and Kate, two sisters who have both been fortunate enough to have become first time mothers in the last couple of years. To say that parenting is a roller coaster is a bit of a cliché, I know, but it’s also completely true. Up and down, round and round you go, sometimes screaming, sometimes laughing, sometimes just praying you’ll survive it. From hormones to stretch marks, child birth to sleep deprivation, motherhood is an adventure like none other. The rapid changes in your body, your lifestyle, and your very identity call for a certain mental agility. Having a child calls on all your resources – physically, mentally and emotionally, and it is so easy to lose sight of your own needs during this time. After becoming new mums we quickly realised just how important it was to prioritise our own self care and feel strongly about supporting other women to become ‘mindful mummies’.
Growing up with mental illness in our family and the stigma that comes attached to it, we have always been very aware of our own and others’ mental health/wellbeing. Through our ‘mindful mummies’ work, our campaign, ‘We Are MAMA’, was born. We believe there is no better way to teach our children than by example and that by practicing our own self care, respect and love, in turn we can raise children with an honest, forgiving and accepting love. We want to support and empower other mums to practice loving and accepting themselves exactly as they are, to be able to raise their children with this shared message and create a generation with greater self-awareness and the freedom to have judgement free thoughts.

 

We have teamed up with The PANDAS Foundation to host a series of exciting events ‘The Mindful Mummies meet-ups’ to celebrate mindful motherhood and support this fantastic charity. Check out our first collection ‘Make a mindful generation’, created to empower Mums to lead their families with our shared ethos and to act as daily reminders to prioritise their own mental wellbeing. For all the latest information on events, collections and news, sign up to the newsletter to stay updated!
