The year 2020 had me busy, writing a book, that has been in the making for decades. This will be my third book – a gift book for mums – due for release in April 2021.

In December the previous year, I emailed a proposal to my publishers, pitching my idea of a gift book for mothers. Within hours I received a response from the Editor – they were interested.

My inspiration to write this book came from many mothers. The thousands of mothers I had worked with, in over twenty years as a Speech Pathologist; and within my speech pathology clinics for over 14 years. I was privileged to work together with mothers who were doing their utmost to help their child and give them the best support possible. Their determination, courage and strength were humbling; yet they also needed support and reminding that they too did matter.

I then began my own motherhood journey, having three children in two and a half years. This allowed me to connect to the world of mums more deeply; but then I too discovered my own quiet ambition to get mothering ‘right’, and without a clear understanding of what that meant to me; it resulted in existing in a motherhood space, where my expectations of myself were unrealistic. After much soul searching; I recognised my need to let go of ‘perfection’ and reset my expectations; to embrace ‘my normal’ and embrace my personal growth along the evolutionary motherhood path.

Flourish for Mums: 21 ways to thrive with self-care and acceptance shares 21 simple yet strong principles; that allow joyfulness and deep fulfillment. This in itself has a flow on effect to the children who share in a mother’s world; whilst reinforcing and respecting the strength of our mothers, grandmothers and their mothers gone before.

The Flourish for Mums mission is to gift mums with a space created to honour themselves, whilst celebrating the children in their lives; and to invite mothers from all over the world to discover their sacred self, and relish in the relationships that matter to them most.

It is time for mums to thrive and flourish!
