Making me-time for mums

Welcome! We're Pippa and Penny of Story of Mum, a social enterprise changing the world, one beautiful brave exhausted mama at a time. We support amazing busy women who are trying to do it all but often feel inadequate, to bring more rest, joy and fulfilment into your life - even when that feels completely impossible. 

We've created simple tools to practice being kinder to yourself, inspired by the sea.

...A quiet pause  

...A moment of kindness

...A breath of courage

...A clear horizon

Because we all need a little box of sea wisdom in our pocket.

Reminders to rest,
brave stories and treats

 "They seem to arrive just when I have reached the end of my resources for being decent to my family..."
