This is me, super super happy after settling the babies to sleep and escaping to a bar where actual adults were drinking in the evening sun. Like a grown up. Woop!

Norwich based meetups, workshops & events, set up by mums for PARENTS looking to be revived, restored and inspired.

I'm Emma, Norfolk girl, wife, and mum to two children, 3 and 9 months. Previously a brand/marketing manager, I rediscovered social media for myself after my second baby was born (was a bit fatigued by doing it for others!), and I was 'quite keen' to hear from all the inspirational mums inspiring other mums at events around the country, but couldn’t get to them. I found having children awesome but tough…it muddled my identity a bit and it took old photos, a life coach, lots of talking and reading to feel vaguely confident about what comes next. Trying to be a healthy, good mum and wife and a person in your own right is HARD!

We Got This (sometimes!) has been started as a way to bring all this inspiration I could see online, to Norfolk, so will offer events, workshops and get-togethers to inspire + entertain parents. The aim is to bring inspiring guest speakers to discuss everything from parenting, work, creative pursuits, style, and well-being. The events will be for new mums, wise mums, going-back-to-work mums and all mums AND dads.

When I was thinking what could this be called, it came to me that my friends say "you got this" to gee each other up. Like a mantra. I got this, I got this. Some days you do feel like you're winning then all it takes is a bad night and it all unravels. Or just as you're about to put the baby to down (so close!) and they sick everywhere. Or the lasagne you've actually made is rejected. 

So the idea is we all have got it, but a little trick, tip, hack or laugh won't hurt (in my case it will work wonders!).

Sign up to hear about upcoming events :-)
