who is calm mutha?
Hi, I'm Maria, aka Calm Mutha.
I was inspired to create Calm Mutha after I gave birth to my first child. Motherhood was a gigantic step into the unknown for me; our birth was tough + during the subsequent first few months I found myself lonely + in fear of expressing how I really felt in case I was cruelly judged as being a bad mother.
Motherhood is hard + there's no shame in accepting that.
I suffered with birth trauma, post-natal depression + many months of feeling detached from my body + who I was a person. I wasn't sure how'd I'd gotten to this point + I had even less idea of how to deal with it.
I did a lot of soul searching, connected with a lot of amazing peer supporters, healers + nurturers + finally I began to see the light at the end of the tunnel. At that point, I knew I wanted to do something to help others.
Calm Mutha was born.
I'm passionate about helping mothers get the care + attention they need during the whole process of becoming a mother. For me it's so important that you are aware of + that you understand your choices pre-birth. It's also key that you feel empowered during your labour. A woman's body is sacred + magical so I've made it my mission to help you connect to + trust your birthing body with my bespoke hypnobirthing course.
My own difficulties post-birth have inspired me to become a Postnatal Doula, specifically honing in on the vital first 40 days after birth. Traditionally, a new mother + baby were cared for + supported by, extended family. Unfortunately in our society today, most of us have moved away from our families + so we lack that care + attention we need during the early stages of motherhood. Calm Mutha is that care + attention.
For both mother + father, parenthood is a minefield of hows, whys + whens. My role as your Doula will be to help give you as much information as possible for you to make informed + empowered decisions based on you + your baby.
Pre-baby, I worked as a Women's Empowerment + Life Coach. I helped women look within to find who they really were + what they wanted to achieve in order to live a life that they loved. I now use my skills + techniques to help mothers connect to the real essence of who they are, relinquishing all fear + anxiety + really helping them to embrace the next step on their life journey.
Everything that has led me to create Calm Mutha has been born out of personal experience, which means I bring to you an authentic, honest, warm service, that's full of love + dedication.
Dedication to you, Mama.
I can't wait to work with you.
