A MUM of four who contributed to a wellness app directed at mums is promoting it in time for Maternal Mental Health Awareness Week this week.

Izzy Anderson, from Ripon, North Yorkshire, is a wellness coach and has recorded a series of meditations and information about essential oils for the the Nourish app.

Following a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter last summer, the Nourish App is a library of practical self-care tools, including positive psychology, meditations, yoga poses and mantras to help mothers ride the emotional ups and downs of motherhood and boost their positive wellbeing.

She said: “It has been such a privilege to be part of the Nourish team. As a mum of four, I’ve lived and breathed the challenges of motherhood for 10 years.

It feels amazing to be able to help mums and future mums – offering them tools that have helped me on my journey.

“This new app is a place of pure compassion, connection and nourishment. That mothers can reach for, not only for daily inspiration in selfcare, but also in times of stress, loneliness, overwhelm and more, to help them navigate their emotions, refill their cup, boost their happiness and ultimately access their best selves – for themselves and importantly, for their families.”

The Nourish App is the brainchild of Sara Campin, a personal development coach and strategy consultant.

She said; “Yes, there’s lots of wellbeing apps out there, but there’s nothing that really focuses and talks to mothers’ wellbeing and the specific emotions and challenges they experience.” Visit www.thenourishapp.com.
