Additional Mama Resources
Your wellbeing is just as important as your children's and so we have put together some additional reputable people and resources that we personally recommend to help you understand your thoughts and body better, leading to a happier mama
Breath & Wellness Coach
Nicola is a mum of two and has been in the women's health industry for over 20 years and is one incredible woman! She is passionate about her work and continues creating a space and community where women are supported, a place where they can get their questions answered without feeling judged and be empowered with tools, techniques and skills to deal with life as a woman. She discovered breath work through being a Pilates instructor and after kicking goals in that field and having some scary but remarkable experiences herself, she pursued breath work and she has a real gift! Nicola is personally recommended by us and is on the Gold Coast but has loads of really great online content and resources. If you are feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, lost, unheard, unseen, disconnected, breathwork is for you!
We all need a little bit of Nicola in our lives!
You can also find her on Instagram @nicolalaye
The perfect meditation by Nicola Laye to help you breathe and relax. We recommend doing something like this for yourself every day! Inhale the calm and exhale the overwhelm.
