Mamas of Melb EDIT
Ain't no hood like MOTHER-HOOD! As beautiful, precious and rewarding as it to be a Mama bear, it's equally overwhelming, exhausting and lonely. You don't have to do it alone. I mean it. You're not expected to know it all, be the best or even be a "perfect" Mum. Other than a strong coffee, support is the key to surviving n' thriving motherhood.
The #mamasofmelbEDIT brings together Melbourne women who truly care about building a community of like-minded Mamas. I'm honoured to share the stage (errr...studio) with six Melbourne Mamas that are fuelled by a mission to help other Mums. Meet the Mamas of Melbourne and our kiddies who inspire our dream.
Just as it takes a village to raise a child, it takes almost an island to make an EPIC shoot like this happen. The rad businesses that made this magic happen are listed in this article. So if you love something you see, hit up the links and support Australian biz babes (and one dude). Support small and you'll always win big!
