I am so excited to share this fortnights beautiful journal with Charlotte from The Living Doula. Many of us have heard the term 'doula' but I've found many Mama's are still a little unsure of the immeasurable support they can offer us, from fertility, pregnancy, birth and into our post natal period, on this often challenging journey. Here, Charlotte shares her take on this important role and offers some very important lessons we should all be taking stock of, mother or not.
We are honoured to welcome Nature Baby to our journal this month. As kind as they are clever, Jacob and Georgia Faull, founders of world renowned baby-wear brand Nature Baby are in a league of their own, paving the way for ethical and organic business. A wee ways back I sat down with the dynamic duo for my book Wild Kinship; Conversations with Conscious Entrepreneurs and am excited to be sharing 5 questions for 5 minutes about this incredible brand and the work that they do.
Renowned acupuncture therapist Debbie Karl of Mount Acupuncture shares her insight and practice of readying woman for birth, post natal treatment and birth trauma with us this week. Having been one, of many, grateful patients to have worked with Debbie at her practise I am very excited to share this wonderful resource with expectant Mamas.
We recently spoke with lovely Jenny, co-founder of the incredible family owned and operated Solvej Swings. You have likely seen their beautiful products the world over; they are hard wearing, soft on the planet, aesthetically pleasing and rather importantly- fun, all the while nurturing a positive and healthy socially responsible company model. We are honoured to have Solvej Swings as brand partners and to share their 28 year journey of handcrafting swings from their rural workshop with this inspiring interview.
Founder, Monique Hemmingson, shares how Moon Mama has come to be and what she hopes you can gain from using this space. This is harder than I thought. Five little words, that have likely and unwelcomingly, entered a new Mother’s mind at some point. Five little words that come heavy, loaded and shrouded in guilt.
