And welcome to my third baby, Mama Nourished Co. I’m De - your postpartum doula! I’m also a wife and a mama to two little babes and I have a real passion for helping women build their village for a positive and rewarding fourth trimester (and beyond).
The concept for Mama Nourished Co (MNCo) really began in 2019, just after our eldest was born I started a blog to shed light on the early days of motherhood and create a village for myself. We lived 4000km away from family and the majority of our friendship group, so it was an important outlet during that time away and something I could do to remain connected to the woman that I was before I took on the role of "Mother". The blog changed and adapted over time, with many names and themes, but one thing remained true, my combined love of writing, mothering and a positive postpartum.
Last year, during our second pregnancy I decided it was finally time to pursue to my passion for the postpartum period. So i enrolled in a course which provides training for postpartum doulas and loved it so much that it was completed well before the expected end date. The initial business idea for MNCo started there!
Being that I was so unwell throughout both of my pregnancies, I knew that it would be silly to delve too deep before baby number 2 arrived. Instead I would put my energy into planning (another love of mine) and developing the concept - I soft launched this concept in May but decided there was much more to be done... and here we are!
Whilst my offering is still limited due to being in the throes of new motherhood, this passion will be ever growing and adapting to meet the needs of the collective "Mother".
Thanks for reading, I can't wait to get to know you all - De xx
