Our Story

Hello, and welcome to our little corner of the interweb. I’m Alena, a writer, coacheducator and the founder of the Soul Mamma Blog. I live at Freshwater Beach, in Sydney – though if you’ve been around a while you’ll know me, my husband and our three kids spent a couple of years living in Bath, England.

Back in 2009 when I founded Soul Mamma I was a single mother, working and studying and just beginning to understand how to create the kind of life I wanted for myself and my son. I started blogging with the express purpose of sharing ideas to support other families to feel connected, live ethically and soulfully.

Here’s a short video to say hi and fill you in a bit further. It’s just me, having a chat on a Sunday afternoon, no styling, no studio or anything else fancy like that.

There is plenty to explore here, you can find articles about eco living, food, parenting and family travel. If you’d like to, you can learn more about what else I do here and you can join a vibrant and supportive group of mums and readers here.

It’s an honour and a privilege to do this work, and I am genuinely so thrilled to have you here with me. I hope you enjoy the words, the pictures, the links, and most of all getting clear on what you love in your own family, and your own life and living a life that is sourced from your heartiest intentions.

I absolutely love to connect with readers so please do tweet me (and tag @soulmamma_ so I see it), check us out on Instagram, or join our wonderful Facebook group so we can connect.

Stay real,
