MEET THE FINALISTS- Mum's Pride

Posted on 12 March, 2021 at 2:15 Comments comments (226)




NOMINATION CATEGORY: MUM-OWNED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR


Mum's Pride (@mums_prideteam on Instagram) is a platform for mothers from different backgrounds and walks of life where they can feel safe, supported and encouraged.

 

This group was founded four years ago after Katie, the founder, graduated from medical school and realised that, despite having great support from her family and friends, she felt very lonely because it seemed as though no one could relate to her journey as a mum. In Mum's Pride, they all speak the same mum-language and we keep it real.

 

They have about 150 women on our WhatsApp group where mothers feel free to share their experiences, ask questions and use the platform as it benefits them. They also have separate subgroups such as our "silent group" where they only post events, info, and notices for mothers who prefer to limit WhatsApp chats. They also have subgroups for different locations.

 

Mum's Pride meet regularly (although we have paused these meetings since the pandemic started), often in small groups, and always allowing children to come along (apart from our yearly Night Out and Spa Day!). They believe in kids networking and, importantly, they understand the difficulties of finding childcare.

 

Katie is a Christian and sees this group as her ministry and her way of spreading the love of God. For instance, during the first lockdown in 2020, they realised how necessary it was for many of them to have regular prayer meetings to uplift each other. However, they pride themelves in being a diverse group in terms of religion, age and background, and all mothers are welcome.

 

During these unprecedented times, Mum's Pride has been involved in meetings with local MPs to discuss matters regarding mental health and early learning for our children. As Covid-19 has highlighted the different ways in which the pandemic is affecting different communities, Mum's Pride has taken part in important conversations in the community. They are also well supported by our local Housing Association and local businesses.

 

Mum's Pride has the privilege of having many women working in the healthcare sector, so the group also has a subgroup for doctors who help answer medical questions and correctly signpost mothers in need. Especially during this pandemic, it has been beneficial to have mothers helping to filter through and explain governmental and medical guidelines.

 

Mum's Pride has truly been a blessing to many and they wish to continue supporting not only our local community, but also mothers across the world.

We can not wait to celebrate this mother of excellence on 14th of March 2021.
