Founder & Owner of 6 Week Social
I’m Rebecca, mummy to two small boys, Elliott and Samuel.
As well as being a mum, I’ve been an early years specialist for over 20 years. As well as working on government early years initiatives I’m a fully qualified Montessori Teacher, and spent seven years developing my career in California.
I now live in Ware and built 6 Week Social to cater for mums and babies across East and North Hertfordshire.
I started 6 Week Social after having our first born, when I was new to the area, didn’t know anyone and had no idea what was ahead of me on the rollercoaster ride of life as a new mum.
Thrown in at the deep end after needing a C-section (Elliott was breech), I really struggled trying to feed my baby and get him to put weight on. I felt like I really didn’t get to enjoy my new baby and was just wishing that time away.
I had put far too much pressure on myself, as well as feeling the weight of judgment from so many around me. I wasn’t sure where to turn for the right information and I didn’t have a group of other mums around me to help make life that little bit easier.
So 6 Week Social was born!
This is a group for mums to feel empowered, supported and and to know that they’re not alone - when the days seem long and the nights feel lonely as you get up for those feeds.
I love putting on meet ups for pregnant and new mums and my proudest moments are watching lifelong friendships grow from being on the 6 Week Social courses.
I’m really looking forward to meeting you and your baby soon. x
