Mums have the best ideas!

Us Mums have all the best ideas right?! How often have you looked at something and thought ‘I’d improve that by…’?  Or had a great idea for something that doesn’t even exist.

Late last year, I worked with a Mum who had a great product idea and now it's become a reality!

Silke Thistlewood Nourish to Thrive

Silke Thistlewood is mum to two little girls, aged 2 and 6. They’re the inspiration (as well as the reason!) behind her business, which centers around realistic self care and resilience tools for mums.
You might remember Silke from this great article on self care that she wrote for us last year.

After struggling with postnatal depression and anxiety after both births she found very little wellbeing advice that was actually practical and realistic for Mums of young children. So she decided to create what I couldn't find and has been running ‘Self Care for Mums’ workshops and online courses ever since. She also runs a free Facebook community, Nourished Mums, where she shares tips and tools to enable Mums to care for themselves as well as everyone else.

She was keen to develop a physical product for people to purchase and had the idea for a pack of cards that would give a short self care or mindset prompt on one side, then bite sized information and some motherhood solidarity on the other.  Every card was to be thoroughly realistic, to achieve within a mothering day, and would give a boost and encouragement whenever needed.

Introducing Nourished Mum Care Cards

After following my course (and lots of hard work!) Silke’s cards are now available to buy!  If you live local to Tonbridge, she’s even offering you the chance to save on postage and collect in person. (Just enter COLLECT at checkout.)

In her words: “They’re designed to enable you to look after yourself in small ways every single day, so that you don't lose sight of who you are and what you are capable of in motherhood and beyond.”
