We had three amazing speakers for Mum Talks July; Jacqueline Kelly from Our Brave Hearts, Mairead Ronan and Jennifer O’Connell who shared their stories, advice, and wisdom with us this morning. It really was such a special morning and we loved meeting all the new mums who joined us and also welcoming back those who have been to Mum Talks before. Thank you to everyone for being there and creating such a wonderfully warm atmosphere.
We loved the honesty of the speakers and took a lot of comfort from the fact that we are not alone in the worries and insecurities we have as mothers and that good enough really is good enough!
Thank you to our lovely partners for the morning, The Irish Times as part of the Summer of Family, Parentline and Ireland’s Blue Book.
