Mother Circle Training
BECOME A MOTHER CIRCLE GUIDE
An Introduction to Mother Circle Training
My mission is to create a global motherhood village made up of an extensive network of Mother Circles that connect, support and elevate women all around the world. Mother Circles led by women like you who have learned their skills within the nurturing and supportive space of the Mother for Life Mother Circle training programme.
How it all began…
My first months as a new mum were the loneliest of my life. This isolation broke me and was a major factor in my postnatal depression. I had no first-hand reference point of what being a mum inviolved. This meant I placed huge expectations on myself. These were unrealistic and left me feeling inadequate and miserable.
I know that things would have been different if I’d had other mums to talk to. I would have been able to share my worries and let go of some of the pressure I put myself under. I would have known that it was okay to not love being a mum at times. Instead, I told myself that I wasn’t good enough and I felt guilty about pretty much everything.
This is why I know first-hand why Mother Circles are so essential.
I strongly believe that we need to change the way women treat each other. I haven’t always had a good relationship with myself or other women. I’ve experienced bullying from women. I’ve been unkind to women. I’ve seen my daughters suffer at the hands of other girls. We pit women against each other from an early age. It’s not necessary and it’s not right.
This is what undid me when I became a mum because I didn’t have a community of supportive women or a ‘mothering village’ behind me. No mother is an island, and it was only when I realised that I had to reach out and be willing to be embraced by others that my life changed for the better.
The more I learned about the importance of female community, the more passionate I became about finding and delivering solutions. This finally led me to create Mother Circles and communities of women who love, support and honour each other. I need women like you to help me.
Now is the time for us to lift each other and set an example for future generations so they learn that there is space for everyone to shine.
In these pages, you will find details of everything you need to create the same communities where you live. You too can be that role model and inspiration.
