‘Want it all’ in mum’s new role

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE -

WURTULLA mum Kate Leiper is chang­ing the way women see their role as a mum.

Her new busi­ness baby, The Di­a­mond Women Project, is an ini­tia­tive aimed at mums who “want it all and to do it all – fab­u­lously”.

As a peri­na­tal psy­chother­a­pist with two lit­tle ones at home, Kate be­lieves that once women learn to em­brace the po­ten­tial of their new iden­tity and tap into their post­na­tal su­per­pow­ers, they can truly be­gin to find joy and un­lim­ited pos­si­bil­i­ties in mother­hood.

Ms Leiper said the busi­ness idea came about af­ter con­nect­ing with a lot of women who had been “thrown into mother­hood”.

“With what I know about women and this time of their life, I want to show them how awe­some it can be,” she said.

“Also this iden­tity shift, how I can sup­port mum’s tran­si­tion into this new iden­tity and har­ness these new pos­si­bil­i­ties.

“With a bit of cre­ativ­ity and in­no­va­tion, mums can nail life in ev­ery shiny, multi-faceted way.”

As well as net­work­ing events, Ms Leiper also runs Mama Like a Boss pro­grams with the aim of sup­port­ing new mums.

“It seems to be the sit­u­a­tion that women know who they are and, when they be­come mums, it throws them into dis­ar­ray,” she said.
