Most of us are guilty of looking at ourselves and feeling unhappy with what we see. We pick faults in ourselves, don't have enough self-belief, and let the world tell us we are not enough. But what if we got up each morning, looked in the mirror and felt... happy?
What if we loved what we saw?

We are so excited to welcome Jessica Smith to the next Mum Society event. As an ex-Paralympian, and someone who has faced eating disorders and depression, Jessica has made it her life’s mission to make women feel good about themselves, just the way they are.

Her message is one of positivity and strength, and it's one we all need to hear. Learning how to answer the world's call for perfection lies within us, and Jessica will share her incredibly moving story of how she reached rock bottom before turning her life around to become one of Australia's most passionate crusaders for positive body image.

As well as learning to embrace your inner-champion, and meeting some of the amazing mums that are part of the Mum Society community, you'll be treated to a fully-catered brunch in the gorgeous The Centennial Homestead venue, while the little ones are taken care of by our complimentary, professional child-minding service.

Join us for a morning of honest storytelling that will touch your heart and leave you inspired. We'll also be throwing in some lucky door prizes, and we promise to make your coffee just the way you like it. We can't wait to see you there...

Jessica Smith

* As always, your little ones are welcome with limited on-site childcare with Upswing.




There have been many stories written about Jessica Smith, including that of a child born without a left arm, a teenager who went on to represent Australia for swimming in the 2004 Paralympic Games, and a young adult who broke free from an eating disorder.

But perhaps the most important story there is to tell when it comes to Jessica, is that of the inspiring woman she is today; an internationally recognised advocate for positive body image, a loving wife and mother, and an author and storyteller.

Jessica has stood on many platforms; throughout schools, universities, businesses, and communities as a sought after motivational and public speaker. She created the award winning social media campaign 'Join The Revolution' and is an ambassador for Layne Beachley's 'Aim For The Stars Foundation'.

She was recently awarded 'Emerging Leader' by the Australian Government at the Positive Body Image Awards and was recently awarded a 'Pride of Australia Medal' in Western Australia. In 2015, Jessica was also a state finalist for 'Young Australian of the Year'.

With all these accolades aside, Jessica's most proudest life moment is recently becoming a mother for the first time. This new path to motherhood inspired Jessica to create a series of books that celebrates children's differences, and encourages self-confidence, no matter their physical appearance.
