The ultimate self-care for mums event

A 2-day event of Guest Speakers and Workshops with mums sharing all about mental health and motherhood.

When is the last time you did something just for you?

If you feel like you're running on empty, you're not alone! We as mothers are so quick to put ourselves at the end of our very long to-do list. This is why I created the annual Mums' Mental Health Summit, and this year it's going to be bigger and better than before! After a hectic few years to top off how hard motherhood can be, I decided that 2022 had to be the year to bring us all together in person! Everyone talks about how 'it takes a village to raise a child'... well, it's time for us to extend this to include mothering the mother. If you are feeling the pull to do something for yourself, to connect with like-minded mums, and carve out some time for yourself, join us! Check out your ticket options below, and I'll see you soon.
