Connected Mama helps busy professional women who are pregnant to emotionally prepare for a calm and connected transition to motherhood. Used to leading high-achieving, successful careers, many women are left wondering what became of their identity and confused at the feelings of overwhelm over a tiny baby.
Run by Cherie Pasion, Connected Mama focuses on proactive wellness, taking women through a Connection Compass, which provides women with strategies on how to connect with themselves, their baby, their partner and community as well as nature. This journey starts in pregnancy and bridges birth and the early days of motherhood.
Cherie created Connected Mama after being an IT professional and realizing that conventional care models in her pregnancy didn’t give her the answers or roadmap she needed to prepare mentally and emotionally for motherhood.
Connected Mama currently offers products such as:
Both the book and affirmation cards are included in Hollywood gifting baby baskets going to well-known celebrities such as Mark Zuckerberg, Sandra Bullock, Kim Kardashian and more to come in 2016.
Cherie will be introducing a number of programs in 2016, both face-to-face and online. Watch this space for more details.

Lift is the magazine for any mum flying solo.
After very unexpectedly becoming a single mum when her son was four months old, Lift’s founder, Naomi, wrote a daily blog about her recovery and adjustment to single parenthood. During that time she received hundreds of emails from mums around the world thanking her for sharing her story and telling her that there was a lack of positive information and support for newly single mums.
Armed with that information, Naomi decided to start the world’s first magazine to support and empower newly single mums through their first 365 days of single motherhood and beyond.
Today Lift is a combination of self help articles, interviews with single mums who have rebuilt their lives in beautiful and amazing ways, as well as legal, health and financial information created specifically for single motherhood in mind.
We help women to stand on their own two feet. We provide pre-settlement and post-settlement advice. We enable women to be empowered by understanding and controlling their financial position now and in the future.
We help by providing financial advice, but we also take on a Project Management role to connect and work with all the other advisers you need to ensure you are able to stand totally on your own two feet, not just with finance. We provide strategic advice and educate our clients and direct them what to do with their investments, superannuation and insurance.
We service all of Australia, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Do you feel anxious when it comes time to talk to your ex? Do you put off conversations because you just can’t stand the thought that you will need to speak to them?
Unfortunately communication is an essential part of any parenting relationship, but it becomes even more so when you are co parenting. Being in a co parenting relationship means that it is important that you both have access to information regarding your children at all times, that you both know what is going on and can communicate with each other without the need to involve your children.
This is where we come in. Our Children Australia offers an online communication platform to help separated parents, organise and communicate regarding their children in a safe and neutral environment.
More than this though, Our Children Australia is dedicated to supporting separated families through a variety of information, resources and services to help them each be the best they can be.
If you are struggling with formulating your own parenting arrangements and feel bogged down trying to think about what should be included. Pick up a copy of our free co parenting pack included a checklist and e book to help you plan your parenting agreement with ease.
