What’s wrong with my baby?!

I had read every book and bought and lovingly washed every piece of clothing. After watching several episodes of ‘One born every minute’ I felt almost expert. We had spent a large sum of money and time getting pregnant through IVF so having a ‘textbook’ pregnancy seemed just to me. I luckily had the exact […]

Obligatory Sex

What I love most about the Melbourne MMD Course is the conversations that emerge… the REAL conversations that you might not have with your girlfriends anymore (or maybe ever). This topic sparked a lot of laughs and made a lot of the Mums feel that little bit more ‘normal’ so when the magic happens, we […]

My journey to marriage AFTER kids!

I always swore I’d never have kids before marriage.. NOT because of the old school Catholic beliefs I was raised with about sex before marriage – seriously, get with the times! But because I didn’t want to have to worry about my own kids at my wedding. When we found out we were pregnant the first time, […]

What Tassie taught me!

I didn’t really think all that much about being 23 weeks pregnant when we went on our recent trip to Tasmania. A very sensitive bladder while camping ain’t the greatest nor is trying to experience MONA with a one year old who’s just discovered her feet and hiking up the insane cliffs of Tassie wilderness […]

Presents Vs. Presence

I have a mini meltdown every time a special date comes up… Valentine’s Day, Anniversary, Birthday, Christmas… I rack my brains and stress about the ‘perfect’ gift for my man. Then I start to get annoyed at myself because… He’s my partner, I should know him well enough to know what he wants I should have […]

What’s your Love Language?

A couple of years ago I learnt about something that literally changed my life… and took my relationship to the next level. Before then, I was doing it wrong – and beautiful, you probably are too. I don’t know about you, but I was taught to treat people how you’d like to be treated. The problem with […]

Connection is invaluable

The energy of like-minded women connecting, sharing and learning together…really is invaluable. We are blessed here at Mummy Mind Detox to experience it week after week through the MMD program, and it never gets old. Too often we find ourselves connecting over our problems; the things that we don’t like about ourselves, our bosses, our friends, […]

Body Bashing – do you do it too?

For years I body-bashed myself. I never had the skin I wanted, the hair I wanted, the legs I wanted, my period was always painful and there were times I wished I’d been born a dude! The thought of standing on scales made me anxious. I dreaded summer. But over the last few years I really found […]

No one can change you except for YOU!

No one can change you… you have to change yourself. So often women will ask me how to find their purpose, how to let go, how to be happy, how to get over their ex… The list goes on. Of course, we can help but my response is always the same – you have to want to help yourself. There’s […]

That STUCK feeling

I met a woman the other day. She volunteers her time two days a week to a charity – she loves it. I asked her what she does the other days of the week and her whole demeanour changed. “I’m an engineer.” “Wow”, I said. “That is SO cool!” “No, it’s really not. It’s boring and I […]
