Do you wish motherhood
was easier?

Hi, I'm Kirstie Stockx, I'm a qualified educator and self care consultant that specialises in personal wellbeing for mums with young kids.

Okay, Mums... this parenting gig is hard work. The relentlessness... the constant doing, the mental over load that never Ever EVER ends. It's friggen crazy! I'm constantly working with mums that feel overwhelmed, guilty and have lost their sense of self.

Is this normal you ask...? Hell no! It can be your normal but it doesn't have to be.

While I was  researching my book, Self Care for New Mums: A Practical Four Step Guide for First Time Mothers, It became clear-as-day noticeable that mums that felt Confident, Self-Assured and Loved had developed strong skills in four key ares...


14 toddler activities

I refer to these four areas as the MAMA Method:


Understanding how your mind works gives you the knowledge and insights to help work with your mind instead of against it.


Mum's often have bodies that need an opportunity to heal, learn about simple strategies that encourage a quicker recovery so mum can get back to doing what she loves.


Our home is filled with many ways to save time and make things easier; implementing simples hacks can give mums more spare time and energy.

Ability to Connect

In the modern parenting landscape, feeling connected to your community, family and especially yourself is vital to personal wellbeing.

My big vision is to  create a community driven by mums that's supportive, connected and empowering in a way the mum focused and judgement free.

"It's entirely possible (& necessary) for mums to nurture their own needs while simultaneously raising kids that are happy, loved and well adjusted"

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.

The art of supporting those that parent differently to you

By Kirstie Stockx | Jan 17, 2018

1. Breath and smile – It’s okay to be different. 2. Tell them that you’ll support whatever decision they make (you’re not agreeing…you’re supporting!). 3. Know that they (like you) are parenting in the best way they know how. We draw from our core beliefs and values… and like fingerprints, we are all different. 4.…
