Elwood’s innovative wellbeing emporium, This is Life, is launching a contemporary mother’s group to encourage women to fulfill their goals.
Kicking off on Wednesday, May 2 and continuing indefinitely, the centre is hosting a free Modern Day Mother’s Group from 9:30am to 11:30am weekly, to offer a space for women to set goals for their lives not just alongside motherhood, but beyond it.
Inspired by her own challenges as a new mum, Michaela Menichelli – who owns This is Life alongside husband Ashley Campbell-Bird – was eager to create a community that supports, inspires and empowers others when life gets tough. Michaela hopes that the weekly gathering will empower mothers through supportive conversations and brainstorms lead by a team of experts in both parenting and self- preservation called “Wellness Warriors”.
Although she adores being a mother and the lessons that come with it, Michaela found herself juggling running a business with a new baby and started to wonder about her future – not just her own fulfillment, but also how she could best lead by example. After realising that other mothers might feel the same way, Michaela transformed her personal challenges into an opportunity for support, sparking the idea for Modern Day Mother’s Group.
