It’s finally feeling as though spring is slowly getting near, the mornings may still be crisp, but the blue skies and daffodils are starting to make an appearance and this fills me with immense joy! Easter will be around the corner soon enough, with lashings of chocolate, egg hunts and of course; over – indulgence!

In this month’s Places and Faces column, I wanted to take a moment to extend a heartfelt acknowledgement to all the remarkable women out there who are courageously navigating the intricate paths of work, the journey of motherhood, and the unique challenges that life presents, including the profound journey of IVF. As a new mother to the delightful Penelope and the proud owner of Enhance Cosmetic Clinic, I find myself on a journey of balancing business and embracing the profound transformation that motherhood brings.

As you know, I am an advocate for supporting women in the workplace and giving women the opportunities for financial freedom. Working alongside my team has allowed me to create an environment where women feel empowered to thrive. At Enhance Cosmetic Clinic, we prioritise fostering a culture of inclusivity and support, where women are encouraged to pursue their ambitions and embrace their unique journeys. This includes providing flexible work arrangements, such as time off for IVF treatments, to ensure that women can prioritise their health and well-being while pursuing their professional goals without the worry of risking their working role.

The arrival of Penelope has prompted me to make adjustments within the clinic, ensuring that I can maintain a fulfilling career while cherishing the precious moments with my little one. This shift has not only invigorated my ambitions, however has also deepened my appreciation for the supportive team around me and the transformative journey of self discovery and personal growth motherhood brings.

For Mothers Day the mums of the clinic are coming together for an afternoon tea at the Hotel Victoria Lowestoft, bringing along our daughters for a bonding afternoon over delicious cakes, sandwiches and cream tea! Team meet ups are always on the agenda to strengthen our personal relationships and encourage downtime outside of the workplace.

Amidst the whirlwind of late-night feedings and the responsibilities of managing a business, I’ve found solace in the simple joys of browsing adorable baby clothes online. Additionally, my permanent makeup has been a cherished ally in maintaining a sense of normalcy amidst the challenges of sleepless nights and busy days.

As I gear up for my first Mother’s Day, Enhance Cosmetic Clinic is ready to celebrate. The clinic has had a fabulous makeover with a soft pink reception area – a chic retreat for our clientele. The feedback so far has been very positive about our pre treatment relaxation area. We’ve also got gorgeous gift vouchers ready for purchase online or in-clinic. Perfect for pampering sessions and delightful facials! We have also launched some exclusive packages online which are essential for mums needing an afternoon of indulgence.

2024 is bringing in some exciting vibes, too. Working hard behind the scenes, we’re rolling out a new service alongside our existing PMU educational programs: Female Business Consultation. My mission is to inspire and empower women to unlock their true business potential, chase their dreams and create a life that truly reflects their identity and self expression. Intrigued?

To all the extraordinary women out there, whether you’re balancing work and motherhood or navigating the profound journey of IVF, I want to commend you for your resilience and strength. You are capable of achieving greatness, and it’s an honour to stand alongside you on your journey.
