Mum Talks July

Note our new venue! Cafe en Seine, Dawson St

Mum Talks are monthly meetups for women looking to feel inspired, learn something new and make new friends. Babies are welcome too! A light breakfast will be available throughout the morning. You will also get to meet loads of amazing mums, bonus!

Mum Talks are delighted to have partnered with The Irish Times for this event as part of The Irish TImes Summer of Family series. You can find some great tips and support for families on the Summer of Family website here

Mum Talks believe strongly that being a mum should not stop you reaching your career goals or enjoying your life passions, both of which are vital for self-care but can sometimes feel forgotten about or may need to be re-evaluated when you have children.

Mum Talks host meetups in a friendly and comfortable environment and invite 3 inspiring speakers to share their story and the tools they use to help navigate this exciting (and sometimes daunting!) time. Babies are more than welcome to join while you learn and feel empowered.

Mum Talks aim is to give you confidence and empower you as you get ready to return to work after maternity leave; or are thinking of starting your own business; or are adapting to life as a stay at home mum.

We are delighted to announce our speakers for July!

Jacqueline Kelly, Our Brave Hearts. Having felt a huge loss of identity after the birth of her first child, Jacqueline realised that there was a huge gap between the reality and the expectations of motherhood. She has spent the last few years coaching mothers who feel like she did. Jacqueline is a mindset coach who works with mums that are stuck in that place between who they used to be and who they are becoming. She helps mums get very clear on who they are whilst holding space for them so that they can continue the transition into the woman they know they are meant to be. A huge part of her work involves challenging the fantasies that have been built up around motherhood.
