Our Why

muMEcations is a social enterprise, a ‘Business for Good’, on a mission to help women nurture their mental health and wellbeing by taking time out for self-care.  We do this by providing luxury and affordable retreats within Australia and abroad for you take time out to indulge in whatever way you need, wherever you need it and however you like it.

muMEcations was born from a universal need for Mums to take a break.  The working Mums, the stay-at-home Mums, the new Mums, the seasoned Mums…we all tirelessly dedicate ourselves to others.

muMEcations is dedicated to you.

We want to inspire you to give yourself permission to take a break and invest in your own happiness, health, and connectedness.

Because you’re worthy of self-love and investing in your own happiness to achieve optimal mental health and wellbeing and by doing so, you will also be enhancing the wellbeing of your children.

A world where Mothers are nurtured and supported to achieve optimal mental health and wellbeing.

Our Mission

The statistics driving our mission

muMEcations exists because 1 in 3 women will experience anxiety during their lifetime
Because 1 in 6 women will experience depression and postpartum depression
Because women are twice as likely to experience depression than men
Because 64.4% of work performed by a woman per day is unpaid care work
Because Mothers on average get 5 hours less sleep a week than others
Because mental disorders are the leading disability for women in Australia

How we're making it happen

Fully planned and coordinated retreats

One thing us Mums are always short on is time. That’s why we take care of all of the admin stuff – the planning, booking, research, costings…the whole lot.
We do all the time-consuming parts of planning a getaway so you can focus on packing your best frock, comfiest trackies, and keep daydreaming about how amazing you’re going to feel on this retreat.

Social connection and inclusion

All of our attendees have something in common. You’re all in desperate need of a well-deserved break. We create, nurture, and promote a social space focused on women getting back to their roots and connecting in a meaningful way with each other. Our retreats are a culture of inclusiveness and a judgement-free zone that sees and values women for who they are regardless of family, health, financial status, disability, age, or gender expression.

A social enterprise on a mission for women

We’re committed to reinvesting 50% of our profits back into muMEcations to support fully funded places on our retreats for women experiencing hardship.
We work with community organisations and corporate sponsors to make our retreats accessible and affordable for women doing it tough so we can create better statistics for women and their mental health.

"I deeply believe that if Mothers are well, families can be well. And if families are well, then society has a much better chance of being well".
