Do you wish motherhood
was easier?

Hello beautiful...

I’m Kirstie Stockx founder of Self Care for Mums. I’m an educator that specialises in wellbeing and self care for mothers. I’m debunking beliefs around self care and getting noticed for it.

As you know... this parenting gig is hard work. The relentlessness... the constant doing, the mental over load that seems to never Ever EVER end. It's friggen crazy!

All the work I do revolves around finding creative and effective ways to replenish our cups, reduce our mental load and improve our relationships and support.

My big vision is to create a change in the modern parenting landscape where mums lift each other up, support and celebrate. Together we'll move away from the mummy martyr fad and create a healthier more vibrant community.

*I will never share your information with anyone and you will receive emails filled with really valuable goodies and information which will be worthwhile to read.

"So much of the support available is baby/child focused (which is essential)  but mums are often left to fend for themselves... I'm all about helping mums with mum-focused kick-ass content and support"

Kirstie Stockx


I have recently published my first book called 'Self Care for New Mums: A Practical Four Step Guide for First Time Mothers'.

I'm currently working on my second book. I also maintain an engaging blog and guest-write for a number of mum related sites.


I speak about many issues that are near and dear to the hearts of mums with young kids. I am especially passionate about practical self care and I strive to generously share strategies that will immediately help the mums present.


I work closely with mums, either online or in person (in the Bendigo area). I'm passionate about providing mums with practical advice and motivation that helps mums learn how to feel more confident, self assured and loved.

"In the time I've known Kirstie, I've seen how she has inspired, supported and encouraged other women (including Mums) to believe in themselves and realise they can be who they want to be. Her advice is practical, real life and positive. Kirstie is inspiring to me as a Mum and women in business "

Sam Spence, mother and founder of Executive Virtual Associate. 


"Kirstie’s passion for self-empowerment shone through each page. She is a shining example of how motherhood can be a transformational experience and has generously shared her method with new mums.”
