Our History

Ali - Founder of muMEcations

Welcome to muMEcations

Want to run away from your kids and go on holiday?  Now you can!

We plan weekend getaways for Mums.  All you have to do is book your place and pack your favourite outfit!  Yeah, we know what you’re thinking: “Where has this been all my life?”  We’re glad you asked!

Meet our amazing founder, Ali.  After 12 years of working in retail and corporate travel planning trips for people, including a year in the Middle East leading overland tours, and serving the Geelong community by organising and leading respite holidays for young adults with disabilities, Ali had a life-changing experience that inspired her to begin muMEcations.  Now she wants to share her experience with you.

Hi! I’m Ali and I am Mum to two young girls, Aidee and Macie. I’m super passionate about encouraging women to take time out from their Mum-duties for themselves whilst connecting with like-minded Mums to form meaningful relationships and support each other through the challenging journey that is motherhood. When I became a Mum in 2013, a shitty birth experience led to post-natal depression which paved the way for a rough transition to motherhood. Whilst my heart was full of love for my new baby, and is even more so today, the loss of self-identity that accompanied motherhood was incredibly overwhelming—and it still is. Then, in 2018, my Mum passed away. While grieving for her and coming to terms with her passing, I hit my lowest point. Fate then intervened, and gave me a way to use all my past experience for good. I was presented with an opportunity to travel to North-West Indonesia with a friend to spend a week with an organisation working with vulnerable women and children. This trip was exactly what I needed: time out from the world to reconnect with my old self, the one full of passion, adventure and dreams; and to realise that I wanted to start a business helping other Mums to have their own time out to reconnect and to rediscover their identity and mojo for life. They needed what I did: a girl’s weekend away with guaranteed rest, relaxation, friendship, pampering and total ME-time in a friendly and relaxed environment. I can’t wait to take you on your own meMEcation!
