Mumming was set up to empower work-at-home mums to achieve the right balance in their lives.

Being a mum can at times be incredibly lonely and daunting – transitioning from your old life and figuring out your self-identity again as well as adapting to each phase as your kid(s) grow up brings constant challenges.

Many mums are also now joining the flexible working movement as well which is great, but also can add to feeling isolated since you could spend most of your day without really connecting with anyone when working from home. I certainly found this myself- I couldn’t really go out in the evenings very often and wasn’t seeing anyone during the day - I felt like I was going a bit crazy! I was speaking to my son when he wasn’t there!

The second issue is childcare- there often isn’t anything flexible available for when you need to work for a few hours but don’t want to commit to a rigid nursery schedule. We operate a pop-up creche at our Co-Working sessions so you can come along with your little ones, get some focus time, then continue your day together

Mumming is a blend of co-working, fun, workshops, wellness and idea sharing. Powered by coffee.

  • Vibrant local Co-Working community just for mums 

  • We operate a pop-up Crèche with experienced nannies- bring your little one(s) with you 3 months to 3 years

  • We support the #flexappeal movement started by @motherpukka  

 

About Lauren, the founder of Mumming

Me with my son Leo when he was 9 months old

I have always undertaken ‘extra-curricular’ activities and it’s not until I started working flexible hours from home around 4 years ago that I was able to really balance my life in a way that allowed me to do everything I wanted to do. Sounds like a cliché but it’s true: becoming a mum to my son Leo in August 2017 turned my life upside down in ways I could never have predicted including appearing on This Morning and the Daily Mail & women’s magazines (more about this in the blog!)

My Return to work

When Leo was 7 months, I started back at work again doing 2.5 days a week and gradually built up to around 4 days week- I work in marketing for Skype in the Classroom. What I noticed was although working flexible hours from home was great as I didn’t have to commute, I was feeling very isolated since I also now had very little social life since I was doing dinner time and bed time and babysitters aren’t cheap! Plus I was often too tired to really do anything come the evenings, yet many places are deserted on a weekday morning. I found there was limited support for flexible work-from-home mums, especially at Co-Working spaces - it’s expensive to sign up, rigid hours, and a big monthly commitment. So the idea to unite local work-at-home mums on a mission was born. Since I am used to connecting people across the world in my job with Skype, I am also developing a virtual Co-Working Club- coming soon! Join the newsletter to hear more.

I believe in working smarter not harder

It’s sometimes hard to be productive at home when the house chores are staring at you. Sometimes just getting out of the house can really help- but where do you go if you have kids and don’t want to commit to a strict nursery schedule? What if you just want a couple of hours of focus time before continuing your day together with your little one? Especially if you’re working on your own business and you decide your own working hours. I believe (and have seen) there is no one more efficient than a mum on a deadline. At Mumming Co-working sessions we get stuff done as well as being able to check in on what everyone thought of the latest Netflix/ TV drama!

CO-WORKING SESSIONS

Co-Working sessions for mums who want to get stuff done child-free known as… #fleximumming

We use proven productivity methods - working for 45 minute blocks with 10 minute breaks. There is time to connect with others, but we also ensure you get your work done too! You can join and work on your ‘regular’ job or business or come along and do a creative project, or work on your side hustle. The time is yours to do as you want - treat it as your weekly focus time.

SPOONFED TALKS

For new mums who are starting to think about what is next – what else do you want to create in your life as well as being a mum? Bring your bubba along! Relaxed talks by speakers who are usually mums themselves. Stay for a chat over coffee and an extra pair of hands to hold the baby if you want with the SpoonFed Nanny! We also normally have a masseuse giving back rubs at events because mums need to be taken care of!
