Latest events

From the seed of an idea on a rainy walk around the park with Busy Lizzy Cheltenham, to a fully fledged event filled with wonderful talks, tasters and treats for beautiful pregnant women in no time at all. So many women we’ve spoken to have commented how they would have loved an event like this when they were expecting, and we really hope that it helped the mums-to-be there today feel a little more informed and prepared to meet their babies.

It was wonderful to be joined by John Lewis and their ALL THINGS BABY advisors as well as the lovely Daphne and Margot and Judith Humphreys with her Bloom Baby Balm. The women who received massages from Poppy from the Holistic Hideout floated back into the room!All our experts were incredible and there were so many amazing tips and takeaways. It was an absolute joy to hear them speak so passionately and for them to share their expertise. We sent the lovely mums on their way with some amazing goodie bags, packed with not only the usual gifts and vouchers, but information from a hand-picked selection of local businesses that can support them on their journey into parenthood. Days like today are why we started the Motherhood Society and they are why women and their well-being will always be at the heart of everything we do

We were so thrilled to be able to invite Victoria from Baby Prints Cheltenham back this month for not one, but two Fathers’ Day Fingerprint Workshops. Both sessions were sold out and it was so lovely to have the hall full with happy crafting mums and babies. There were some really fantastic results, as the smaller groups meant Victoria was able to spend time with every parent helping them create gorgeous cards and keepsakes! We even had a couple of dads there overseeing their own gifts! We can’t wait to have her back and are already planning our next session together.

Last month we were joined by the incredible Tasha from The Holistic Hideout. She worked her magic on six lucky women and created a peaceful, little spa in the corner of Leckhampton Village Hall. We love being able to offer mums a chance to relax while their little ones happily play or sleep.

It was great to have the lovely Leanne there to capture some of the action – and make the most of a massage too!

Tackling the subject of the climate crisis with small children can feel overwhelming. How much should we be telling them? How do we make them feel empowered not hopeless?
