Why SpoonFed Talks Started
Becoming a mum was both the hardest and most empowering thing I have done. I found the first few months moving from my 'old' life to my mum life tough-going. I went to lots of baby classes which were great but I felt something was missing - something focusing on us mums - on topics that interest us, because we do (occasionally!) like to think about things other than those directly related to our babies. Who we were before we became a mum is important and finding out own identity again I believe is something we need to do.
It's a chance to engage in adult conversations with like-minded people. Our events cover topics like returning to work, starting a business, travelling with kids, staying positive and dealing with overwhelm.
SpoonFed events are targeted for those in the Fifth Trimester- which is different for everyone- it's the time when you've got over the initial joy (shock!) of becoming a mum and now you're thinking 'OK, what next?'
I originally went to a SpoonFed event myself, loved the idea, and was lucky enough to get to take it over when the original founder, Olivia returned to work. I’m always looking for an extra pair of hands in case you want to be involved! Lauren@mumming.org :-)
