Alison Canavan launches her first book, Minding Mum


04-05-2016 15:00

As a Mother’s Day treat, guests were encouraged to pamper themselves at the nail and makeup bar, with experts from SOSU Nails and Couleur Caramel. Guests were served a healthy Minding Mum Mocktail, created by House for the event.

 

Attendees included Alison’s fellow ambassador for Walk in My Shoes, Adam Clayton, and she was supported by plenty of well-known Irish mums and model friends. Alison’s biggest fan was also in attendance, her son, James.

 

Minding Mum is a simple yet revolutionary concept – new mums need to focus on themselves as well as their children. Only 25% of new mums have reported looking after their own health and wellbeing post-pregnancy, but at such a vulnerable time it is vital to be kind to yourself and give yourself time to recover.

 

If a mum is not happy and healthy it creates a domino effect within the family. This is why you need to look after both your physical and mental health better than ever, and who better to teach you than someone who’s been there, model, mum and multi-tasker Alison Canavan.

 

After having her son, James, Alison felt over-whelmed. While she found a multitude of books and resources on how to care for a new baby, there was little on how to look after a new mum. Through her support of Irish mothers and in this writing this book, Alison hopes that this will soon change.

 

Minding Mum is about making the choices that suit you and that make you happy. With chapters on nutrition, exercise, post-natal depression, mindfulness, beauty tips for busy mums and much more, this is a thoughtful and valuable book that any new mum will treasure.

 

Minding Mum will be published by Gill Books on Friday 4th March, priced at €16.99.
