The Mamas

SUPPORTING THE WONDROUS VITAL WOMAN THAT YOU ARE


Well Made Mama aims to create a space dedicated to the support of Mothers. We aim to provide high quality, evidence-based, scientific content and programs for women expecting their first baby, mothers of newborns and all mothers who want to get to know themselves a little better and learn what practices and points of view can offer up some power during the daily grind.

Motherhood is the oldest game in the book. But it’s never been easy. And, today’s mothers are facing many brand-new challenges that desperately need attention.

We believe that nurturing a woman's mental well-being will help her feel stronger, tougher, wiser, more joyful and more confident through pregnancy, the birth and the weeks (and even years!) ahead.

You are our hero Mama...and this space was made for you with love.

Sabrina

Sabrina is a doer. She never stops.  She wants to suck the juice out of life and then use the pulp in ten different ways. What you will get to know about her, is that she will always look to turn the negative into potential and into an experience to learn and grow from. She does this, always with a smile on her face unless she's 'Hangry', and then you'll see something very different.

Sabrina is the Mother of two wickedly clever and loving boys. Before these little chickens came into her life, she left University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Italian and started her journey in the Film & Animation Industry.

She now has over ten years’ experience as a Production Manager at Award Winning studios in Toronto, London and Australia.

Managing the logistics for projects with eye watering budgets and teams ranging from 30-200 people strong, Sabrina brings a wealth of knowledge in the budgeting, scheduling and execution of day-to-day functions of sophisticated pipelines, to Well Made Mama - she can’t help herself, she loves spreadsheets.

Sabrina has also had previous experience as a Marketing Manager for an international Design Awards platform, The Rookies, managing social media channels, client liaising and initiating new business partnerships.  She currently works part-time in Games Development as a Producer.

After the boys go to bed and she kisses her partner on the forehead, she works into the night on Well Made Mama. This is her other labour of love, one that wouldn’t have come to fruition without having met Megan 7 short years ago in Camden town, learning how to awkwardly manage labour pains with a Rebozo band (ya, that’s a thing).

Megan

Megan is a maker. Before you know anything else about her, you should know that she is driven by the need to improve things, often by getting lost in the creation of something that didn’t exist the day before. 

Megan’s greatest creations to date are the two sweet children that she is raising with her husband. It was their arrival into this bustling, beautiful, but sometimes flawed world of ours that inspired the Well Made Mama journey. The priceless experience of mothering them is her living laboratory of ideas. 

Megan holds an MSc. in Applied Positive Psychology and an M.A in Industrial/Organisational Psychology. Her graduate work in Positive Psychology coincided with the birth of both her children, giving her a perfect opportunity to test theory against experience when it came to the way the science of human behaviour could help a modern Mother adapt to her new role. This led to a Masters thesis on the factors that promote well-being (and sometimes even flourishing) in new Mothers.

Megan has been researching her two professional interests, working and Motherhood, for many years. Her perspectives have also been featured in Working Mother magazine.

One sunny morning in London, she had the luck of meeting Sabrina in a baby preparation class. In it, they found the very thing they needed more than anything else, and that was the kinship of Mothers.
