The Being Mum project is about capturing the reality of life for mums after pregnancy, birth and with a baby.
Giving my children the space to process and regulate their emotions
Being patient, giving lots of love, creating a safe and cosy home
Doing what my children need to feel loved
Showing love and advocating for my son
Continuing with breastfeeding despite comments from other people
My daughter is happy and thriving, even though I don’t always feel like I am getting it right
I make my daughter happy and I keep her healthy
Keeping my boys safe and happy
Making my children feel loved
Being tuned into the needs of my son, allowing him to grow and explore
I actually have no idea but my son is lovely and happy
Being there for my children, listening to them
Connecting with my children, being an attached parent
Showing up every day despite the challenges
Providing experiences for my children, being a gentle parent
Communicating well with my partner
Building boundaries to spend more quality time with my children
Giving my child what he needs
Creating a calm, happy safe space at home for my family
Being Mum is about giving you a voice and a place to read other women’s experiences to normalise motherhood and to ease the isolation.
It’s also about starting a conversation about motherhood, about how individual it is and the impact it can have.
Please do read, share and take part.
With consultations, digital guides and courses, my practice is here for you every step of the way. You can also become a member for exclusive content, discussion and a place to ask questions.
North East Birth & Baby is where you can read about pregnancy, birth and early parenting.
As a doula I work with parents from across Newcastle and Tyneside.
