Connected Mama guides busy professional women who are pregnant to forge connections for a calm transition to motherhood.
The Connected Mama products have been hand selected to be given to some of the world’s most celebrated personalities during their transition to parenthood. Cherie’s book, It’s Your Birth… Right? and Affirmations for New Mothers Cards are in the hands of Sandra Bullock, Priscilla Chan (Mark Zuckerberg’s wife), Kim Kardashian, Anne Hathaway and Eva Mendes.
Founded in 2015 by Cherie Pasion, Connected Mama was created after Cherie – a busy professional who specialised in using technology for behaviour change programs, and now mother of Juan (excuse the pun) – became pregnant and experienced a lack of emotional preparation in conventional care models. This led her on her own journey to prepare for a gentle birth and create empowerment tools to help her cope mentally in Juan’s early days.
But she wasn’t prepared for other issues when they cropped to the surface in early motherhood – such as feeling a loss of identity when her professional title was stripped away, a lack of personal or ‘me time’ and a real sense of loneliness. Those feelings were confusing at a time when she also felt accomplishment and overwhelm of love and connection with her precious baby boy.
Recognising a gap, she undertook months of research, talked with pregnant women and new mothers and developed a connection compass to help women navigate their journey to motherhood. Wanting to share her knowledge, she authored the book It’s Your Birth…Right? A guide for professional women to calmly transition to motherhood upon which the Connected Mama coaching, workshops and programs are based.
All of the Connected Mama offerings are developed especially for professional women. Being a professional woman herself, Cherie understands the specific pressures you face – both while you’re in your job and in motherhood. The programs are centred on you – helping you start your motherhood journey in the best way possible and in turn giving your baby the best start in life.
