The mainstream image of Mothers’ Day is a never-changing scene – fluffy slippers and dressing-gowns, a steaming cuppa, angelic and well-groomed little people clamouring, a devoted husband overseeing delivery of hot breakfast.
Yet the ever-evolving realities of motherhood couldn’t be more diverse, or less fluffy!
At Babes, we are constantly awed by the mountain-moving mamas growing and transforming their roles in big and small business, in leadership, in activism, and at home.
So this Mother's Day, we're determined to celebrate, discuss, and empower motherhood in all its forms – alongside mothers from all walks of life. And you're invited!
On Friday, 11 May 2018, join us for our inaugural Rewriting Motherhood forum, a one-day event for mothers to engage, network, and share their experiences and their inspiration.
At Waterman Business Centre at Caribbean Park (44 Lakeview Dr, Scoresby), the forum will feature high-profile mothers Jamila Rizvi (journalist and author of Not Just Lucky and The Motherhood) and Emma Race (ABC Grandstand presenter and creator of Help Me Help You app).Read more
One of the most rewarding parts of our work in Pregnancy Support is when we are present for the moment a woman becomes a mother; the moment when she sees her baby take their first breath and a new relationship is begun. For every birth we are a part of at The Babes Project, we count ourselves blessed that we have the opportunity to observe these first moments of life and motherhood.
Our Labour Support Team is a special bunch of women. They are women who volunteer their time to ensure no woman is unsupported during childbirth. They put themselves through training, put lives on hold when on call and do all it takes to be available for massive lengeths of time. Often under the influence of bad hospital coffee! Holly is one of our Labour Support team and she wrote these words about her most recent labour experience with one of the women of The Babes Project.Read more
Mother's Day is such a favourite time for us here at The Babes Project. What a beautiful opportunity to honour the women who mother little ones, sometimes in the face of challenging circumstances. This week our Croydon team hosted a brunch to celebrate the women we meet and it was beautiful.
These week old little ones came along and because they were born only hours apart we couldn't resist having them hang out together.
