Mother For Life

Are you looking for genuine friendship from other mothers?

Are you yearning for a real connection with other women?

Are you longing for a space where you can talk openly about your hopes and fears without judgement?

Are you a little lost and feel that the companionship and support from other like-minded women will help to get you back on track?

Do you feel that something has been missing since you became a mum?

Do you want to raise your vibe and lift your energy levels?

Are you fed up with not being properly listened to?

Do you miss your old friends and have no family living close by that support you?

Are you struggling to understand yourself since you became a mum?

Are you afraid to go out and make new friends?

Are you lacking in confidence?

Are you pregnant and worried about becoming a mum?

Are your children a little older now, you’ve found yourself back at work and time to yourself or with friends is even harder to find?

Mother For Life

If any of these feel true to you, you need to be a part of The Circle.

But is the Circle right for me?

  • It is if you want a safe space where you always feel welcomed and where you can be authentically you.
  • It is if you want to be held by other mothers who understand the pressures you are under and who will laugh and cry with you.
  • It is if you want a space where you can speak from your heart and connect with yourself and others on a deeper level than that of a regular conversation with friends or family.
  • It is if you long for a space where you are seen and heard in a non-judgemental way and always with kindness regardless of who you are or the choices that you decide to make.
  • It is if you want to be able to explore your feelings around motherhood and to be able to let go of any feelings of guilt or anger or shame.
  • It is if you are finding it difficult to make friends since you became a mum but have a deep need for these friendships.
  • It is if you are interested in exploring a little more of your spiritual and energetic side.
  • It is if you want to have fun with other mothers.

Women need other women in the journey of raising children. We are not meant to do this alone but finding the right spaces to receive real support is getting harder and harder as families live further apart and friendships are hard to maintain.

Mother For Life

Motherhood is meant to be experienced in a community, a village or a tribe. We are meant to ask for help from each other but we have forgotten this and feel embarrassed when we do ask. Society pretends that we can do it on our own and have it all but is that really what you want?

Why do it alone when you have women just like you on your doorstep who also crave friendship and understanding?

My vision for the Circle:

  • a space where mums sit together in friendship and allow themselves to be vulnerable through talking and listening.
  • a space where everyone is heard and held safely so that we can express our fears and struggles and learn to share without fear of judgement.
  • a space where we share our wisdom.
  • a space where everyone has the opportunity to tell her story, in her own time.
  • an energetic space that lifts everyone.
  • a space where like-minded mothers create connections and build their confidence, where we realise that we are enough.
  • a space where we re-ignite our passions and discover new ones - a space where we re-discover joy.
  • a community where we don’t tell each other how to ‘do’ but empower each other to be the best version of ourselves.
  • a community so you know that you are not alone.

Mother For Life

The Circle is the space where we feel at ease, sitting together and sharing how we're feeling with honesty. Where we talk through things and feel supported by each other. It’s the place where we energetically raise our vibe and find our strength.

Within the Circle we share, we heal and we become stronger. We create heartfelt connections that benefit ourselves, our babies and our families. We make the world happier and a much more empowered and rewarding space for each of us through our friendships and the stories we share. We inspire each other. We raise our vibe.

The Circle is an essential part of your own self care where your heart opens and you receive the love and support you need.

There is something truly profound about mothers coming together to support each other. Each Circle involves sharing how you are feeling if you wish to and also an activity if time permits.

What other mums say about The Circle:

"An open space for women/mums to share their truth, to be listened to and be held and supported in a non-judgemental way."

"Like a warm, supportive hug, which made me realise I'm not alone. A room full of awesome, non-judgemental women (most of whom I don't (yet)) know, who laughed and cried and made me feel like I could share."

What our mums say...

Mandy understands that babies have their own minds...

Mandy was extremely friendly and made me feel at ease so quickly. Which was fantastic as I was nervous being the youngest mum in the room. It was good to introduce everybody and nice for Mandy to explain she understands babies have their own minds so if we wanted to we could feed or change nappies just simply watch.

And she really meant it. 

Having tea and cake at the end of each session made you stay and engage with the mums.  I loved how Mandy explained all the benefits of the different massages e.g. winds/sinuses  Oh and one final thing I loved the goody bag! Couldn’t rate the class highly enough.

SO glad I'd found Mandy and her classes

I had previously been to a few different yoga classes and found them a bit intense and not what I was looking for. I heard about Mandy's prenatal yoga classes through a friend and it sounded just what I was looking for. From the first session I was SO glad I'd found Mandy and her classes. They are way more than a yoga class - meditation, breathing exercises, relaxation and a chance to chat to other expectant mums and soak in Mandy's wisdom. The jammie dodgers are a welcome bonus to the class too! Since lockdown the classes were via zoom and this worked really well and I still had the same sense of connection and relaxation I got from the in person class. Between classes I also did Mandy's yoga sessions on her website which really helped me stay relaxed and helped my aches and pains. I also made sure I regularly listened to her audio relaxations which helped me stay calm and grounded in those final weeks. Above all of this, Mandy has been a wonderful support and checked in with me after the birth of my daughter and during our hospital stay - Mandy really does go above and beyond and puts out some brilliant online content. I can't thank her enough!

Mandy is such a positive influence

I went to Mandy's pregnancy yoga class for a block of 8 lessons. I enjoyed it so much that I kept going for another two blocks. You may think you're going for yoga, but it's so much more. Mandy is such a positive influence on how you feel about your pregnancy, birth and parenting. I gained friends, lost any fear of giving birth and am looking forward to joining one of her baby classes with my newborn.

Mandy really encourages everyone

I first attended Mandy’s pregnancy yoga classes when I was pregnant with my first baby, the yoga helped hugely with my pregnancy aches and pains but most of all the support and encouragement from both Mandy and the rest of the group was amazing. Mandy really encourages everyone to engage with each other which wasn’t something that I had experienced in other groups I attended, it meant that I felt safe in asking that daft question or verbalising my fears! I then went on to attend baby massage and postnatal yoga with my first baby and again the support and ability to engage with other new moms was fantastic! I have recently had my second baby and attended pregnancy yoga, whilst I had less concerns and worries about pregnancy and birth the classes gave me a dedicated hour to have just for me...which was so important and you don’t get much time to yourself when you are running around after a toddler! I am now attending postnatal yoga and although this is having to be done via zoom Mandy has continued to provide a safe environment and an opportunity to engage with other Moms! Thank you Mandy you help me keep my sanity!

Every class provides a relaxed and friendly environment

I first attended baby massage classes when my son was 3 months old, and then went on to do mum and baby yoga, and I’m on my 4th block of classes now (my son is now 9 months old!) Every class provides a relaxed and friendly environment, great yoga for post pregnancy, focussing on pelvic floor exercises and breathing, and a general feel good hour where you can forget about the outside world. The cake and tea are a bonus at the end of the classes and I have met some really lovely moms through attending. Mandy has a special gift at teaching and she never fails to create a relaxed environment for the babies, who all seem fixated by her presence. I am so glad I found her classes as Wednesdays are my favourite days of the week! Cannot recommend enough.

Absolutely love her classes

I returned to Mandy's pregnancy yoga classes following my second pregnancy as I absolutely loved her classes first time round and made some solid friendships. 
Mandy creates such a welcoming and safe environment. She is passionate about ensuring mums and mums to be have a support network alongside the yoga which is so vital. Her classes provide opportunities for open discussion around pregnancy/childbirth/motherhood and no question is out of bounds!
Following the birth of my daughter, I went on to attend baby massage and baby yoga classes, both of which I can thoroughly recommend. Baby massage has given me some really helpful techniques to manage baby's trapped wind and has also helped me deepen the bond with my little ones. Baby yoga was surprisingly more relaxing than I expected! I have made some amazing friendships that have continued post classes. I would definitely recommend Mandy's classes. She is so honest and puts her heart and soul into her classes.

Fantastic!

I did want to say thank you. Your classes are fantastic - you explain everything so clearly and know which achy bits to work on. It has made me think that I should find a ‘normal’ (ie not postnatal) yoga class post-lockdown, but finding the time will be a big challenge! I also think that what you do for mums is great and I hope that you will be able to start your classes in person again soon. If I come across any mums to be or new mums I will certainly recommend you, although Arlo was a late (and very happy) addition to our family and most of the mums I know have kids at school now. That’s been another positive for me actually - being able to connect with people going through the baby/pregnancy stage as otherwise it would have been very easy to neglect that side of my life with the demands of having other young children. One of the unforeseen bonuses of Mandy's classes was that my baby always slept for three hours afterwards!

I feel empowered as a pregnant woman and as a future mum

I signed up to the class to get to meet local expectant mums with the side benefit of a nice stretch.  I did meet some lovely local mums and found it so helpful to have a space where you could talk about any issues and get advice or support. What really surprised me was how much I valued the yoga and stretching but mostly the breathing exercises. It gave me a toolkit of things to do during pregnancy and also in Labour and has made me feel excited for the birth! Mandy’s affirmations during the rest time have really spoken to me and made me feel empowered as a pregnant woman and as a future mum.

 The class was so beneficial to me, to have a space just for me to enjoy my pregnancy and learn about the things I can do in birth to help it be a positive event. Thank you!
