I'm a social worker with more than 15 years of experience, and I've spent the past few dedicated to supporting parents during pregnancy, the postpartum period and beyond. 

My passion is supporting Mothers to push back against the 'shoulds' of the perfect mother myth, connect more deeply with themselves and their community and find more joy in motherhood.

I offer a range of online and in-person services designed to provide a high level of care for you on your motherhood journey.

Katie Parker: Mother's Circles Warragul Victoria

Mothers' Circle

A six week Mothers' Circle series in Warragul that honours you and your experiences of motherhood. 

 

For the mother who:

 

  • Is craving conversation and connection with other mothers on a deeper level.

  • Has a desire to more deeply understand the identity shift women go through when they become a mother.

  • Would love to be part of a community of mothers who value themselves in motherhood and push back against the 'shoulds' of intensive mothering ideology.

  • Is interested in unpacking social conditioning and challenging the cultural narrative of what being a 'good' mother means.

  • Resonates with a more responsive and gentle way of parenting, without using bribery, punishments and rewards.

  • Wants to foster a more connected and present relationship with her children without sacrificing herself in the process.

  • Is curious about how her own childhood experiences influence her parenting and is willing to further explore what it means to parent consciously.

Testimonials

Steph

Testimonial

Being in a safe container with Katie and all of her experience and knowledge in starting up a small business has been so useful to me - especially as I was in an intensive stage of parenting with my toddler just as I was starting my business. She was able to coach me through that, giving me the tools that I needed, not just in business, but in parenting too. That’s what’s so wonderful about what Katie offers – she brings the parenting and business support together and does this so beautifully. I’m so grateful for the support I’ve received from Katie, she has made me feel so safe.

Courtney

Testimonial

Receiving online support from Katie has been a Godsend during this challenging time at home full time with a toddler and a baby. I've felt so supported knowing I can chat through anything with Katie that comes up for me in my parenting, and feel really heard and understood. Thanks Katie for listening, sharing your wisdom and guiding me through my journey towards becoming a more mindful parent.

Business Mentoring

I am passionate about providing support to Mums in business.

 

I offer support 1:1 or through my 6 week online circle series as a wonderful opportunity to connect with other Mums thinking about starting a business, just starting out or a bit further down the track of running their own business.

 

Having facilitated several group mentoring programs over the last 12 months, I can honestly say what I love most is the genuine support and cheer-leading the women provide to each other in the group. It really is one of the magical things about women joining together in circle.

 

It is my passion to support Mums to create a business that is aligned with their values and fits around Motherhood in a flexible way that feels good.
