Join us for a Twitter chat this Wednesday 26 July 8pm on Mama’s minds, mental health, self care and everything that we can do about it. I’m delighted to say it’s mercifully not about me wittering on, but a chance to get the brilliant advice of two phenomenal expert Mamas, both passionate about reaching out and helping mothers and their wellbeing;
Dr Rebecca Moore
Dr Rebecca Moore is a consultant in the Perinatal service in Tower Hamlets, East London. Perinatal means during and after pregnancy, and that’s the role of her team – to supporting women’s emotional health through this time.
She has worked for the Trust for over 8 years now and is really passionate about providing the highest quality care for women through their pregnancy and in the first year of motherhood. This may be with new or pre-existing mental health diagnoses.
As a mum herself Dr Rebecca hopes this means she can relate to, and understand the huge changes that happen when a woman becomes a parent, both as a doctor and as a mum. She still remembers vividly her own birth experiences, having two colicky babies who cried a lot and didn’t sleep, the anxiety she felt after having her first child, about the responsibility of being a mum, and the change in life. Dr Rebecca is also a Winston Churchill Fellow 2017 and 70/30 Ambassador.
Suzy is a mother of two, a Chartered Psychologist, Yoga Teacher, and Health Coach. She specialises in maternal wellbeing, helping mums manage their emotions, energetic bank balance and the unique stresses of motherhood.
It was her life experience of motherhood colliding with the terminal illness of her father that sparked her passion for self-care which she now teaches to her clients to cope during periods of stress, loss and change and to boost their resilience in the face of future challenges.
Suzy is a contributing editor for Psychologies Magazine and the Psychology Expert for wellbeing brand Neom Organics. She figure skated her way through her childhood, growing up on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, and now makes her home in hills of Hertfordshire, UK. Her first book ‘The Self-Care Revolution’ is due out in December
#MamaMindChat is at Wednesday 26th July 8pm UK time
