Do It Like a Mother on Instagram
  • As much as I wanna love the @johnlewisandpartners ad, and I do feel the feels, I also felt a bit bothered by it.
.
If you’re a parent who is worrying about how you’re going to afford to buy your children anything much at all for Christmas, I imagine it’s deeply triggering. .
I believe the most important gifts we give our children are the cultivation of their self worth, and the tools to navigate the world with kindness and love. I know many people who are financially privileged (or have been) and yet crippled by self doubt and fear, manifesting in aggression and disconnection.
.
My point really- it’s not what material things we get that matters. BUT. Every child should get something at Christmas, right? And when we come together as a community to ensure that happens, we give not just the material, but the sense that they matter.
.
If you’re local to us, you can drop a gift for a child living with Domestic Abuse to @do.it.like.a.mother_hq for 10 days from Friday 30th November. They will be going to @sos_btc where they’ll be checked and wrapped and distributed. For more deets, please see my Facebook event, I’ll add link to bio- Gift Like A Mother SOSDAP. Any Qs just ask. .

  • Last night I went to a workshop with Sarah @guidedharmonyuk and Shirley from @theseashack. I ugly cried ALL THE WAY THROUGH. .
In the company of @instannnnagram, Gemma @theseashack, @photography_by_petra, @gemmabennett_ @the_reiki_room and a couple of other beauties I can’t find on here to tag.
.
What struck me was the way we pass the baton for holding the space. And what a fantastic thing that is. The way we lean on one another, and put our unique skill mixes to use at different times to inspire and support the rest.
.
I’ve had reiki and EFT with Gemma. Petra provides me with the most beautiful images for my brand. 
I’ve enjoyed an uplifting Full Moon Supper thanks to the hospitality of Anna. I’ve been supported by Ella in a pop up we arranged caring for midwives. I’ve bought beautifully thought provoking pieces from Gemma and Shirley. And Sarah heals me, my husband, my mum and dad even, time and time again. .
And many of them have invited me to support them- Hypnobirthing, mindset and business coaching online and at our real life mornings @do.it.like.a.mother_hq . .
It’s the most peaceful feeling to be so accepted. To share the load. I am SO #blessed #sorrynotsorry to have women like these (and plenty more of them I could name) on my doorstep.
.
Who do you love in your local (or online) community of women? Salute your sisters 💁🏼‍♀️❤️

  • My childcare swap with @photography_by_petra is the gift that keeps on giving. At the mo, we each have them 9 hours a week- that is 💵 💵 💵 saves on childcare costs. AND. The time I actually have them, they are so much easier to entertain together than Rory on his own.
.
I always think surely this is how it’s meant to work- families supporting each other, parenting together? We are so fortunate, I’d massively encourage anyone to consider embracing an arrangement like this ❤️

  • Traditionally, Hypnobirthing has urged pregnant women to avoid negative stories. I’ve been that Hypnobirthing teacher waxing lyrical about the impact on the subconscious.
.
It’s true to say that the damage can be real- your brain is like gaaaaahhhh 😱😭🤮😖 and holds onto the feelings. Mind body connection kicks in during birth, body responds in fear and it’s extremely detrimental. (That’s the quick version).
.
But. If you only allow yourself to consume perfect, pain free birth stories (you know, unicorn births 🦄) and that’s not what you get, because well, REALITY... then you may find yourself feeling isolated, your love for yourself and your capacity eroded, left outside alone of the positive pack. .
I saw a comment in a group today suggesting that Hypnobirthing doesn’t contribute to birth trauma, but I believe it can and it does if it’s not delivered in a fully considered way.
.
Here’s the truth. Even very positive experiences of birth (and the immediate postnatal period) almost always have negative or challenging or traumatic moments. And if we share these from a perspective of gently nudging others to learn what we wish we knew, that can actually be really helpful. .
Not the scary headlines, but the lessons. What we did, or we wish we had done to ease our struggles. The advocacy we needed or the reframing we used.
.
If we come from love, we are good. In a weird way, our silence perpetuates the disconnection and the problems within the system. Not that we are responsible for the change unless we feel able to be. 
If we come from needing to process our own stuff, we can welcome in the right support. @traumatic_birth_recovery has practitioners all over the place, @clare_motherssupportingmothers local to me, and some of my team training in this brilliant method next year too. .
Head to the birth stories section of our website for varied, positive, imperfect births, and to @tellmeagoodbirthstory ❤️
.
I would love to know what you think...

  • EARTH POSITIVE 🌍❤️
Our sweatshirts and T-shirts are organic and ethically made, with the garments manufactured using sustainable energy generated from wind and solar power.
.
They’re printed by an independent local business.
.
And £5 from every full price sweatshirt goes to @sos_btc .
So they’re a great gift to yourself or to love another mother, and they are about as ethical as it fricking gets.
.
They’re also soft and cosy with satisfyingly long sleeves..., and printed with lilac (which is totes on trend much to the dismay of @steph_do.it.like.a.mother).
.
Available online now, link in bio.

  • This is no ordinary pop up shop! Combining our popular support groups with the chance to shop small and local as the festivities kick off. (Its Leigh Lights that evening- you can get set with a sling to ease your way, learn how to stay warm safely etc).
There will be storytime with @bookaliciousuk as well as our signature sweatshirts, T-shirts and pins on sale, plus beautiful and inspiring products by @theseashack @girlfridayembroidery and @hugos_pantry cake (already drooling).
.
Further vendors to be announced soon. Come and have a mooch and a munch, bring all your worries and let’s reconnect you to the motherhood before the madness kicks in.
.
All welcome ✨💕 Friday 30th November 10-1 @do.it.like.a.mother_hq .

  • LEST WE FORGET. If you’re still looking for a good enough reason to live your life to the fullest potential, to experience your greatest joy and fulfilment... if you’re still unclear that human connection is the biggest opportunity for greatness we have, remember this.
.
Many people gave their lives so that we wouldn’t be imprisoned by hateful beliefs and oppressive categorisation. When we see ourselves as separate from each other, and focus on our differences, when we act through fear, we are the worst of ourselves. It’s a slippery slope.
.
How would you live your today if you really recalled that others gave theirs for your freedom? And if you truly noticed how easy it was for a few powerful people to mobilise ordinary people to murder each other, what consciousness would you bring to your perceptions of others today? In what ways could you cast your conditioned assumptions aside?
.
With gratitude and love, we remember ❤️
