It takes a village to raise a child, or so the saying goes. We may no longer live in villages with mud huts, but having a supportive community after the birth of your child is as important as ever.    

Everyone deserves a warm blanket of support to hold them as they thrive in their role as new parents. 

// Once a mum is cared for, they care for the rest of their family.

// Because it takes a village to raise a mother.

Take an hour out of your pregnancy to plan for a peaceful postpartum time. Bring your bump and your partner, hear how you can boost your family bonding, breastfeeding, peace and love.

Hi, I'm Frances. I work every day with new mums to reduce their feelings of isolation and overwhelm so that they can feel confident and supported as they nurture their newborn.

What a great, relaxed and comfortable environment at the workshop! It was great to take time out to reaffirm I was doing the right thing. Lots of constructive conversation and stories.
