RESET is our annual festival for pregnant women and mothers. This year we’ve got an absolute cracker for you as we bring together some of the world’s leading experts in mental health, happiness and wellbeing to help you recover from the absolute TURD that was the last 2 years.
The festival will take place online from the 12th – 16th September 2022 and will include: keynote talks, interviews, workshops, yoga, meditation, poetry, dance parties and comedy. All attendees will be offered the opportunity to access one to one mental health support. Events can be attended live or can be watched back at a time that suits you.
Tickets are just £6 or free if you couldn’t otherwise afford to come. The programme will launch on 22nd July and tickets will go on sale then.
Day 1 Laughter is the best medicine
Welcome and introductions from our founder – Joeli Brearley, plus stand up comedy, poetry and a Q&A session with comedians about motherhood.
Day 2 Perinatal and postnatal mental health
Due to the impact of the pandemic on maternal healthcare, new mums are struggling. This day will focus on what happened to pregnant women and their babies during the pandemic, and it will help women recover from the trauma they experienced, as well as general support with perinatal and postnatal mental ill health.
Day 3 Rebuilding after lockdown
Lockdown sent everything off kilter, mothers are dealing with grief, relationships breaking down, and parental burnout. This day will focus on helping you rebuild after lockdown.
Day 4 Mental Health and Money
The cost of living crisis has hit families hard and is likely to get worse as we head into the winter. This day will focus on how to increase your income, whilst reducing your outgoings and how to manage your mental health when you are worried about your finances.
Day 5 Empowering Change
Many mothers report their confidence being flawed by the pandemic. This day will focus on rebuilding that confidence and being in control of hormones which can scupper your wellbeing. We will end the day with a fierce panel of feminists who will explain why the system doesn’t work for mothers and what we can do about it, and finally a dance party BABY.
