What is Mumming?
Mumming provides pop-up co-working sessions with a crèche for freelance mums in south-west London.
We also run baby and child-friendly talks and workshops for mums that inspire and uplift, all about rediscovering and recreating yourself and your identity after becoming a mum. We strongly believe that becoming a mum does not mean you have to give up on your dreams.
New: Look out for The #Fleximum Collective, our online virtual co-working club – launching soon! Weekly group video calls, worksheets, accountability check-ins, a private slack and virtual office with working hours so you can check in with others in the same boat as you. Working at home / being self-employed can be so lonely and disconnecting at times, so this is the prefect antidote to that.
Why should I come to a Mumming session?
Are you a mum who works from home? Need a bit of focus time to work or study with flexible childcare and some adult conversation? Do you find yourself feeling disconnected and unproductive at home? Then Mumming is for you.
Maybe you’re starting your own business and don’t want to commit to rigid childcare the exact same days and times every week; maybe you’re a freelancer fed up of working from the kitchen table and in need of company; maybe you just need a bit of child-free focus time with a good coffee in hand. Whatever the reason you’re there, your children will be looked after competently in the next room, meaning less stress and more productivity.
Mumming co-working sessions are a great opportunity to meet other local mums and network in a non-awkward way. We even provide Mumming productivity sheets and tools to help you nail that to-do list.
Where are the Mumming sessions held?
We host our pop-up co-working and crèche sessions in venues that are typically not open or busy on weekday mornings – think gastro-pubs, nice boutique hotels, swish cafes… It means you get to get some work done in lovely surroundings and get that buzzy café/pub feel that you so often miss when you become a mum. The places we meet are carefully curated to be somewhere worth leaving the house for with great food and coffee, great WiFi and great company.
Currently, we’re popping up in south-west London but we have big plans for expansion to other areas in the near future. We also have an online virtual co-working club launching soon, so if you’re not local, you can still join the #Fleximumming movement, and get the benefit of good company and networking that a Mumming co-working session provides.
Some previous venues include: Revolution Richmond, The Bingham, Richmond, The Play Cafe Surbiton, The Anglers, Teddington, The Royal Oak, Twickenham; The Alexander Pope, Twickenham and The Turk’s Head, Twickenham.
