Meet Mama Meegs

Introducing Mama Meegs

I’m the woman behind September Baby and the mum to Emilia. September Baby is the space I created to share my experiences as a first-time mum and to connect with other mums all around Australia.

I left my hometown on the sunny Gold Coast with a suitcase and a couple hundred dollars to my name to experience anything that life wanted to throw at me. I called it the “Yes game” inspired by the movie Yes Man. Along the way, I met a wonderful man and moved to a small town in country Victoria.

After a career change in 2016, I was made redundant within weeks of returning to work from maternity leave.

As a first-time mum to a surprise baby, motherhood has definitely been a huge learning curve. The day I found out we were expecting, my life took a complete turn, and then another one when Emilia came into the world. I am discovering new joys – and challenges – of being a mum on a daily basis and I wanted to put all my experiences down somewhere. Surely, I was thinking, there are other mummas out there who could get some benefit from connecting with another woman in the same situation? And the response I’ve received so far has been overwhelming!

To me, nothing is more important than Emilia’s wellbeing and health. Our modern, fast-paced world is full of materialistic, wear-and-tear products which are often full of chemicals and take a huge toll on our planet. I wanted something better – something better for Emilia and for the planet which is now her planet. When I found eco-friendly bamboo swaddles and Moses baskets, I felt so happy as it would contribute to the nourishing and safe start I wanted to give to Emilia. And, naturally, I want you mums out there to have the same opportunity too. That’s why I’ve poured my heart and soul into sourcing the best products from sustainable manufacturers, and now I want to share them with you.

I want to make mummyhood easier for all of us so consider September Baby your resource to the many things essential to motherhood. Let’s have each other’s backs, celebrate the every day and make every moment count.

Let’s connect with each other

As a first-time mum or mum-to-be, you get pieces of advice from everyone and everywhere – but are they the right advice for you?

To begin with, you try to listen to all of them but after a while, you realise that some of these tips are not working for you and your bub, perhaps they contradict each other, or they simply don’t feel right in your gut. Being a first-time mum myself, I know exactly what it’s like. You want to do everything right and you try to listen to everyone else because they have children so they must know what they’re talking about, right? Right, but also wrong. They know what worked for them but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll work for you. This is where September Baby comes in – it’s the perfect place to share your own experiences and help a fellow mum out. Your story may be exactly what she needs right now.

So, at September Baby, we want to engage with you. Whether you are here for our fantastic baby products or just to get an insight into a fellow mum’s everyday life, don’t be shy – reach out, get engaged!
