About Mumming

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!

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 normally have a pop-up creche at our Co-Working sessions so you can come along with your little ones!

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

  • Vibrant local Co-Working community just for mums 

  • The power of mums working together cannot be underestimated!

  • We support the #flexappeal movement started by @motherpukka

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 cliche 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!).

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 work-at-home mums on a mission was born. I also work for Skype in my day job, so the idea of virtual co-working is also in development.

I believe in working smarter not harder - it’s sometimes hard to be productive at home when the house chores are staring at you. At Mumming co-working sessions, it’s great to get some focus time to get stuff done- there is no one more efficient than a mum on a deadline!

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!
