The passion: What inspired you to set up your business?

Embarking on the path of entrepreneurship often stems from a passion born out of personal experiences. For me, it was the desire to overcome my own challenges and support others facing similar struggles. Living abroad exposed me to diverse perspectives, but it was my experience with pregnancy that truly shaped my mission. I went through the joy of expecting a child and the heartbreaking pain of two miscarriages, all while being away from my family.

During pregnancy, I was constantly accompanied by both great joy and overwhelming anxiety. Even after giving birth, the worries didn’t cease. The reality of parenthood was far from my ideal, and the immense stress disrupted my emotional balance. During this challenging time, I realised that overcoming the complexities of pregnancy required not just medical, but also emotional and psychological support. I wanted to create a place where women could find comfort and guidance as they navigated their pregnancy journey.

Through my own experiences, I learned the importance of empathy and compassion. Understanding the fears, uncertainties, and emotional ups and downs of pregnancy, I felt a strong mission to extend a helping hand to women on the same path, providing the support I desperately needed during my toughest times.

Starting this business was more than just an entrepreneurial endeavour; it was about turning personal pain into purposeful action. Through my business, I aim to empower pregnant women with not only knowledge and resources but also a sense of inner strength and resilience. I want them to know they are not alone, their feelings are valid, and their pregnancy journey deserves to be filled with tranquility and joy.

In every service we offer, from counselling to wellness programs, the core goal is to help women find balance amidst the emotional storm that pregnancy can bring. It’s about creating a community where experiences are shared, fears are alleviated, and hope is nurtured.

Reflecting on my journey from personal struggles to empowering others, I am reminded of the transformative power of empathy and the profound impact of turning pain into purpose. This journey continues to inspire me every day, knowing that each woman I support is not just a client but a fellow traveller on this beautiful, albeit challenging, path of motherhood.

The launch: How did you start out in the beginning?

I specialise in supporting health through a holistic approach, particularly in treating stress, anxiety, and chronic fatigue in general. However, I decided to focus on mothers and mothers-to-be who are experiencing the same challenges I once faced. Therefore, I started offering services through social media and online consultations. This service has just begun, and I hope it will reach more and more people in the future.

The innovation: What was the biggest breakthrough for you with your business?

The biggest breakthrough for my business was completing mindfulness meditation teacher training last year. Over the past year, I’ve transformed into a mindfulness meditation teacher, which has enriched my holistic services and added a valuable dimension to the support I provide.
