Mums-to-be Night Out

Thursday 26 April, 7:00-10:00pm at Space@61, SE15

Come and join us for an evening out with expert advice and talks from local speakers on a range of pregnancy and newborn topics. Experience mini taster sessions from local businesses and sample delicious food whilst connecting with other mums-to-be.

Anya HayesBumped Up is thrilled to be able to introduce you to Anya Hayes, author of The Supermum Myth and Pregnancy: The Naked Truth. Anya is a local Pilates teacher, writer and speaker focusing on perinatal physical and mental health.

Anya trained as a Pilates teacher before becoming a mum, after a sudden bereavement forced her to assess what life really means and prompted her to choose a “passion-led” portfolio career over her full-time editorial role in book publishing. Anya is on a mission to empower women with the tools to travel smoothly through motherhood mayhem, with pelvic floor and sanity intact.

She’s the author of four books: My Pilates Guru; A Little Course in Pilates; Pregnancy: the Naked Truth and The Supermum Myth: Overcome anxiety, ditch guilt and embrace imperfection. (All these books were magically written by pixies while she was sleep deprived and juggling babies.) Her fifth book, Pilates for Pregnancy comes out in September.

She has two boys, Maurice 6, and Freddie, 3, who make the freelance mum-juggle totally worth while. Most of the time.

Anya will be discussing tools to help mums navigate into a more positive, resilient mindset and be able to deal with postnatal depletion. Her mission is to empower women with the tools to travel smoothly through motherhood mayhem, with pelvic floor and sanity intact.

We are also very excited to be have experienced local hypnobirthing teacher Zoe Donkin from The Hypnobirthing Place providing fantastic advice for a stress-free pregnancy and a positive birth.

Zoe is a certified Katherine Graves hypnobirthing teacher, professional member of the Hypnobirthing Association and a life coach supporting new parents.  She believes in helping women experience the empowerment of a positive pregnancy and birth.
