The decision to rent gave this philanthropic mum time to devote to her own family
Robyn Jones was on maternity leave e from her job in advertising when she learned arned the sad truth about the global rate of maternal death. One mother dies every minute during pregnancy and birth, and d 98 per cent of those deaths are in developing ng countries.
Robyn saw an opportunity to help new ew mothers, like herself, by developing muslin slin baby wraps that would then fund birthing ng kits for women in developing countries with h every purchase.
“I found a fair-trade certified manufacturer acturer in India who would make our beautiful organic muslins, and established a partnership with Birthing Kit Foundation Australia, who o provide clean birthing kits to women in more than 30 countries.
“So far, Mama Maya has funded more re than 6000 birthing kits,” Robyn says.
While the business is helping expectant ant mothers overseas, Robyn is busy taking g care of her own young brood.
“We’ve lived here for almost two years. ars. We started renting after we sold our last house, use, after a huge and exhausting renovation project, as we felt like we needed a break to focus us on our family and our two small children. We came to see it and instantly knew it was the h one we wanted to live in for the next little chapter of our lives,” says Robyn.
“The last two homes we have owned were double-storey homes, but I’ve always loved the ease of a single-storey home, and this was a big tick for me. I love the huge level backyard, which is perfect for a trampoline and for kids playing soccer, the brand new kitchen, and all the light. There are so many big beautiful doors and windows, the house is always so light.”
Old brass pot
I found this old brass pot in a secondcondhand store. I fell in love with it, and it was such a bargain buy at only y $5.
I bought these Anniel gold sparkly heels for an event last year, and now I have them on display in my wardrobe. They make me happy just looking at them.
Calming room spray
I spray this on my pillow every night before going to sleep, it smells incredible and puts me in sleep mode. Helps to calm the boys for bed too.
This is from Table Tonic. It’s fun and feathery and I just love the texture this adds to our wall.
We bought this ottoman from a little Moroccan shop on Portobello Rd a few years ago. We use it as an extra seat, a little table, and the boys often use it as a step stool.
We were given a Google Home last year and now we have three of them — I can’t live without it! So handy in the kitchen, and the boys have one each in their bedrooms to listen to music.
Our home is feng shui’d to the hilt, so you’ll find lucky bamboo placed strategically in most rooms.
