Welcome to the mumma movement
Thankyou for joining us here, this special place for women to connect, share the experience of motherhood and life in an unedited way.
This week you will be introduced to a few of our contributors and over the coming months have access to positive birth stories, the unglamorous act of parenting, health advice and a good laugh, because we cant survive this journey without making light in the darkest of places.
My name is Sarah, or Coach Sares. I have three hippy babes River (4yo), Raine (2yo), and Reef (20weeks) and a very spunky fiance, Eric (E). E and I own CrossFit Croydon, Yoga for everyBODY and CrossFit Mummas. This is our second year running these businesses and we previously owned another CrossFit affiliate after personal training from GoodLife/Fenix in Mooroolbark, Eastern Victoria. I have a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science with majors in Exercise Physiology and Nutrition, hold a CrossFit Level 2 certificate, and my basic yoga teacher training. I plan to further my education this summer (get excited) and again next year but we shall see.
My passion is helping women love themselves and treat their bodies in a loving way, before babies, during pregnancy and while they raise little humans. I have found CrossFit to be empowering and have the best results personally, and I train my clients in a very holistic way.
We are a vegan family, E is a 'contentious consumer', we practice attachment parenting, extended and co-breastfeeding, co-sleeping, cloth nappy-ing, part time elimination communication (EC), baby-led weaning (blw), baby wearing and are currently sending River to a Steiner kindergarden.
My first birth ended in an emergency cesarean section, I had a beautiful healing home birth (HBAC) with Raine and also had Reef at home with no complications. I have recovered well each time and believe that every mother will have a different experience and should be treated like a goddess during all stages of this journey.
No topic is off limits here...enjoy!
