- Conscious Mothers Founder
Hi, I'm Kay,
Conscious Mothers Founder
I've spent several years in the mothering community volunteering, being mentored and gaining skills from over 66 NHS multidisciplinary staff members.
I listened and continue to hear the voices of expectant mothers whilst observing the trends and outcomes as women and their families transition to parents.
I started this platform to address the common themes impacting our mothering experiences and to 'hold space' for expectant mothers to get ahead of their emotional and physical challenges that present and can lead to feelings of vulnerability and poorer health outcomes; my main aim is to ensure women thrive before, during and after childbirth sharing my knowledge, wisdom and expertise.
As a mother myself twice over and after observing my mother's lived experience of postpartum psychosis, which led to a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, I've lived through and can genuinely empathise with the challenges that present during each trimester and the importance of addressing any challenges or belief systems that you're experiencing as you find your identity in your mothering role.
No two maternal journeys are the same, and our needs are individual. Therefore, I've provided this platform to empower women in their maternal transitions and help reduce risks that may present as symptoms, proceed to interventions, and possibly result in long-term trauma.
My commitment here at Conscious Mothers aims to facilitate self-awareness and drive self-belief techniques that help you identify your core capabilities through education, information and self-reflection strategies.
In addition, I'm here to help you take control, 'of this pregnancy,' and empower you to make informed decisions to help navigate your mothering experience with confidence.
