Mummy Mornings was created by Ali Gibbons, Wicklow Mum of two and founder of online baby boutique Lou and Belle. Speaking about the event Ali says ‘I remember having my first baby and the importance of getting out to meet other mums, it was my lifeline. With Mummy Mornings I hope to encourage local Mums to meet up in a supportive environment where they can chat to each other and listen to some inspiring speakers’. The event welcomes baby’s, with space for buggies and baby changing facilities and easy parking.
Guests can enjoy hearing from two amazing speakers, (who also happen to be Mums).
