The Parent Pause
The Parent Pause will be offering events for those navigating life with children – some will be geared towards Mamas and equally there’ll be some for Dads too!
The Parent Pause was established in 2017 by Natalie Bullard, mother of three based in Rugby, Warwickshire.
‘The Parent Pause was born out of a frustration at being unable to connect with like-minded parents in my local area for more than just baby chat. After having my third child, I found myself learning more about the ‘hip’ Mum events in big cities like London and Manchester, and wishing we had something similar. These aren’t your usual church-hall style groups, but are aimed at enriching, empowering and elevating Mothers by bringing them together to hear inspiring speakers, take part in workshops, interesting talks and stories (child and non-child related), and to generally connect with each other in real-life-full-colour human reality!’
On Wednesday 12th April Natalie had an absolute ball launching The Parent Pause! With 150 Mums (and a few Dads…especially the infamous Warren!) and a fantastic panel of speakers – Sarah Turner (The Unmumsy Mum), Matt Coyne (Man Vs Baby), Giles Alexander (Youthedaddy) and Kate Starkey (Cheltenham Maman).
There was a ‘pop-up’ retail therapy area, with fab brands and small retailers selling all sorts of gorgeous and quirky gifts.
