CARLIE

COMMUNITY AMBASSADOR

My name is Carlie and I am a mother of 2 and Osteopath.

 

My motivation in doing the Mumma Bees training was to learn more about supporting our emotional health through pregnancy and parenthood.

 

The training was wonderful and I have implemented so much of it with my patients and friends since completing. I look forward to providing this support to our communities and increasing awareness of mental and emotional wellness and supporting mothers. 

 

My own journey has involved losing a parent very suddenly when heavily pregnant, the emotional darkness that followed that time and the struggles of new parenthood amongst grief. I have also experienced multiple miscarriages, one traumatising miscarriage and navigating all the anxieties that come with pregnancy after loss.

FIONA

COMMUNITY & PROFESSIONAL AMBASSADOR

Hi, I am Fiona, a Mumma Bee Peer Support Ambassador. 

 

My background is in early childhood education where I have worked and supported many families and children over the last 25 years.  Currently, I work in an Education Program where I teach children aged 3-10 years personal safety and empowerment skills.

 

I have 3 teenage son's which keep me on my toes and I am forever learning new things to keep up with them and their interests!  During my motherhood journey I have endured Post Natal Depression. I have since recovered and learnt so much about myself, life, and managing my mindset, mental health and happiness.

 

I am a passionate advocate for maternal and paternal mental health and commit fully to helping anyone I can who may be needing support with their own journey as a parent and that of raising their children. I would love to connect with you if you feel you want or need to talk.

 

You can contact me via mobile on 0438 316 959 or email feemaree11@gmail.com

I acknowledge that I live and work on the traditional lands of the Bunurong people of the Kulin Nations. I pay my respects to the elders past, present, and emerging, I recognise their continuing connection to the land, water, and community.

Language and Inclusivity

While I use the word mother/mothering throughout my platforms, I celebrate all gender identities and provide all birthing people a safe and accepting space to explore their parenting journey.
