When successful creative director and graphic designer, Jenny Scott, had her first child she found her busy work and social life replaced with daytime TV and websites on nappy and nipple creams. After searching for a support group where she could meet women intent on embracing motherhood, whilst sharing similar interests and hobbies, Jenny decided to create her own social network that focused on the mother as her own person and not just a ‘mum.’ Mothers Meeting was born and, for over three years, has created a stimulating, engaging and supportive environment that help mothers of all ages meet like-minded women intent on keeping their cool.
How to be a Hip Mama without Losing your Cool brings together Jenny’s network of amazing women from all backgrounds, shapes and sizes, and shares their advice on embracing motherhood whilst still keeping their own identity. From finding out your pregnant to post-pregnancy exercises, beauty advice to birth planning, Jenny and a whole host of mama friends reveal the key ways to motivate, encourage and support those facing or going through the challenges of motherhood. From personal ‘labours’ of love to what motherhood means, How to be a Hip Mama without Losing your Cool answers the challenging subjects of breast-feeding, maternity leave and baby blues and offers help on starting your own business, staying healthy, working out during pregnancy and much, much more.
No-one said motherhood is easy and this mama’s manual is the ultimate support system that unites and empowers women with babies as well as those without! Be inspired by the huge number of unique women who understand that being a mother isn’t just about raising a child, it’s about staying true to who you are whilst dealing with the demands of everyday modern life.
