A Community For Pregnant Women And New Mums

We know that having a community and support system is important – even more so during this journey as you transition into your new role as a Mum. That’s why we pride ourselves on creating an environment where you can make new friends who are sharing this new experience alongside you.

Our online members-only community is a safe and supportive place to ask questions, make connections and learn from each other. We provide free live training and tips on topics such as pelvic floor, acupuncture, connecting with your baby, as well as yoga routines to keep you inspired between classes.

We have also teamed up with other local and national pregnancy and new mum products/services that we love to give you access to exclusive discounts and offers  eg. pregnancy massage, chiropractors, physios, baby keepsakes, maternity and new mum teas, maternity wear and much, much more!

But more than all of that, it’s a place where MNY members past and present can chat and be real with each other.

We’d love you to come on in and join us!
