Good morning everyone and welcome to our 2019 White Ribbon ceremony.
Before I speak, I would like to acknowledge the tradition custodians of this land on which we meet today, and I would like to extend my respects to those past, present, and future. This land, always was, and always will be yours.
I’ve been deliberating for some time now on how to best share this dream with you…Should it be with an epic eye-catching video? Should it be a big fancy online launch campaign? In my dreams it was with one huge rock concert...(maybe later)...But for now I’ve decided to share it the best way I know how. With words. I love words. So let’s do this thing.
Emma Thomson created Mums Empowered, a health studio in Newcastle and online hub empowering new mums to take some much-deserved “me time”, to feel better from the inside out. She launched her new e-book 'The Baby As Your Weight Workout' in coordination with Postnatal Depression Awareness Week in November 2014.
EMMA Thomson of Mums Empowered is one of the 1000-plus women who have become part of a new movement sweeping across the region and beyond.
This Friday, June 12, is #gotyourbacksista day, where women are asked to do acts of kindness for another woman or women.
SUNDAY marked the beginning of Postnatal Depression Week, an initiative aiming to create greater community awareness of antenatal and postnatal depression and anxiety.
