- Please Introduce yourself, what is your name, business name, where you are from?
Hey I’m Stacey I am 28, wife to Dan a lorry driver and mum to 4 beautiful boys, lover of Cake and a good cuppa and a self-confessed journaling addict from Shropshire UK.
And my business is called Becoming Mum.
- What is your business about?
Becoming Mum is a platform for mum’s to come together on their own unique motherhood journeys to support encourage and empower each other to recreate and embrace the U in Mum. I use personal development, mindset and positive relationship coaching to help women rediscover who they are again after becoming mum’s.
- What made you get into this line of business?
After becoming a mum I felt a huge loss of identity and was completely overwhelmed by everything that comes with being a mum, wife and running a household. I had quit my job to be a stay at home mum and felt like a failure. I knew I wanted to be more than just a mum and this riddled me with guilt because being a mum is the most amazing thing in the world, so why would I need to be anything more?
I delved into the world of personal development and quickly realised that if I wanted things to change in my life, I was the first thing that needed to change and so went through a process of personal growth and development to rediscover who I was behind my mum title. I retrained in personal development and positive relationship coaching and made it my mission to support all of the mum’s out there that are feeling just like I felt and so Becoming Mum was created!
- What makes you get up and go in the morning, do you have a morning power routine?
Other than my 4 little sleep stealers hehe, the calling of my kettle…truth be told, I am not really a morning person. my power routine is to just get up as soon as the alarm goes off or the kids come in, get up, put some happy music on, make a coffee and get on with the start of the day don’t snooze the alarm or send the kids back to bed just get up and go!
- What is the best advice you have ever been given?
Don’t compare yourself, it’s a pretty simple concept but it’s so important especially on social media because you only see the highlight reel you don’t see what’s going on behind the camera.
- What is a book you would say everyone must read?
Girl wash your face by Rachel Hollis or You are a badass by Jen Sincero both really good inspirational and motivational reads.
- Does your business have any offers on at present or coming up?

- What one thing do you do to change your mindset instantly?
I stop, breathe and think of things that I am grateful for in that moment. Gratitude or remembering how blessed I am to be where I am at that time instantly grounds me and gives me the kick up the bum to reframe my thinking.
- What do you love most about helping others?
I LOVE seeing women empowered and confident. Knowing that when they connect and nurture the relationship they have with themselves they can build stronger connections and nurture more positive relationships with those they love.
Happy Mums make Happy Children and a Happy Wife is a Happy Life hehe!
