Mumming was set up to empower 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.
We are a blend of co-working, networking, fun, workshops,
wellness and idea sharing.
Vibrant local coworking community just for mums
Let’s fully embrace the power we wield by coming together as a community

Where we meet
We strongly believe in the importance of your environment in affecting productivity and happiness so the places we work from are carefully curated. Good coffee is also an important factor!
About Lauren, the founder of Mumming
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. Becoming a mum in August 2017 naturally turned my life upside down in ways I could never have predicted (more about this in the blog!).
When my son 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’m currently freelancing for Skype. 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. I found there was limited support for flexible work-from-home mums, especially in the co-working space - it was expensive to sign up, rigid hours, and a big monthly commitment. The idea to unite local mums on a mission was born.
I’m also a fan of working smarter not harder - it’s sometimes hard to be productive at home when the house chores are staring at you. I use proven productivity methods and wanted to share these with other mums so we can not only connect and chat but also get some amazing work done! Watch out world!
