''Motherhood is the greatest thing and the hardest thing.''
Mama, do you take GOOD care of this remarkable person in your life, YOURSELF?
When a child is born, a new mother is also born. As a new mother you are so devoted to give everything to your baby, to make her/him happy and healthy! And you also want to be a fantastic partner, a good friend just as before and then soon you notice that `life before` doesn’t exist anymore. You are stuck in the never-ending diaper changes, feedings and housework and you don’t know where are you exactly in the picture. On top of that, you live in the middle of a pandemic with restrictions due to COVID and you have less social contact and support, you are sleep-deprived and hormonal and your emotions are like a roller coaster – I know how it is as I am a mum of this pandemic myself.
For most of the mothers it is very difficult to juggle between all the different expectations and roles and most often our own needs get to the very end of the priority list. As a consequence, you get overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious, you lose it often, you have zero time and energy to pay attention to your own needs, to take care of your body with exercising or have a minute for yourself to not to go nuts or to eat healthier and lose that baby weight and feel yourself better in your own body… and it just gets worse and worse as a vicious cycle. You imagined motherhood as one of the most beautiful experiences in life, and somewhere it still is, but you just can’t enjoy it as you pictured before and you feel that something had been stolen from you, that you are broken, that it is your fault.
But you ARE a wonderful mum, you love your baby as no one else could on this world. However, you need to learn how to take care of yourself physically and mentally so that you can see it clearly and finally enjoy this fantastic, challenging and unique life stage called motherhood. Let me support you on this beautiful journey to design your dream life where your and your family’s needs are all met and you feel energetic, sparkly, fit and confident!
Say YES to a quality life where you are in harmony with your body, mind and soul.
Mum's mental & physical wellbeing
Motherhood is not as you expected?
It IS beautiful and full of love but… also overwhelming, confusing and exhausting? Does it bring out your impatient, anxious, downhearted and dark side? Do you feel frustrated and stressed as you are stuck in the never-ending diaper changes, feedings and housework and there is no time and energy to take care even of your basic needs?
Do you feel that you are left alone with your feelings and everyone else seem to cope better with motherhood? Do you feel that your partner is not supporting you as you hoped but you struggle discussing it without being emotional and end up quarrelling?
You imagined motherhood as one of the most wonderful experiences in life, and somewhere it still is… but you can’t enjoy it as you pictured before. Do you feel that something had been stolen from you, that you are broken, that you are not enough?
I assure you that you ARE an amazing mother and all these feelings are absolutely normal and common amongst new mothers. You love your baby as no one else could in this world and you do your best and that is a lot!
But if you want to start to enjoy this life stage and stop struggling, you need to make the decision to stand up for yourself and invest in your health and happiness. With learning how to take GOOD CARE of your body and mind you will not only transform into a happy, serene and positive lifestyle but you will feel energetic, sparkly and fit, you will take good care of your loved ones with ease and you will deal with all the new challenges motherhood will keep bringing to you with confidence.

Living a balanced and healthy lifestyle have an impact on each and every area of our life, starting from our performance to our daily mood, from our overall health and positivity to the quality of our relationships. It is a holistic approach, respecting the necessary harmony between the different areas of life with working on those domains that cause most problems and prevent the overall wellbeing. While it is a beautiful experience to create a family, sometimes it is the most difficult thing we have to face with. As a mum you need to get used to the huge change that just came into your life and swept over everything you knew before and left you with little reference points. You need to learn so many new skills, you need to juggle with so many important tasks when you don’t understand where is that gal you knew so well and who is this old-new person with this beautiful baby changing diapers 8 times a day.
Being a proud mom myself I had my fights and struggles to adjust to this huge change impacting my relationship with my partner, with myself and my whole world. I had my difficulties myself as well to be the mum I want to be, to live a full and accomplished life and show a positive example to my son. This is a never-ending journey and we mums deserve to get all the support to deal with the changes and make the transition as smooth as possible.
