Cherie Mamma - Birthing the New Eve
"The hour is coming, in fact has come, when the vocation of women is being acknowledged in its fullness, the hour in which women acquire in the world an influence, an effect and a power never hitherto achieved. That is why, at his moment when the human race is undergoing so deep a transformation, women imbued with a spirit of the Gospel can do so much to aid humanity in not falling" (2nd Vatican Council).
Our mission is to empower Catholic women to find the natural harmony in their mind, body and soul so that they can experience healthy families, highly successful careers and transform the world.
We believe that women haven't even begun to tap into their potential and in order to do this we need to fully embrace our true femininity. It means
- embracing what makes us women; owning our desire to be mums and embracing motherhood, owning our female form, and yes even our menstrual cycles.
- owning the feminine attributes we bring to our home, the work place, the Church and our societies.
- not hiding behind our sexuality, or competing with men; we are both equal because we were both made in the image and likeness of God.
- being proud of our Catholic faith and heritage.
- being the women God created us to be from from the very beginning because when He did, He saw that it was very good (Gen 1:31). It means being a new Eve.
Why a New Eve?
In the beginning God created us perfectly (Gen 1:31) and He blessed us saying that we should "be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it" (Gen 1:28). You and I know that you have been called to do great things in the world; build a hugely successful career or business and build a beautiful family. But the reality is that, it is not always easy to fulfill these desires.
God does not give us a commandment we cannot fulfil; He does not lay burdens on us without lifting a finger to help us (cf. Lk 11:46) But the problem is that we fell from grace. Adam and Eve disobeyed God and with this act of disobedience, we lost the ease with which we were to have babies, have loving marriages and have hugely successful careers (Gen 3:16-19).
But even so, God in His Infinite Love did not leave us orphans. He promised us the grace of salvation almost immediately (Gen 3:15). The woman’s seed will crush the serpent’s head. And He fulfilled that promise by sending His Son to teach us and die for us. What this means for you and I is that we do not need to be tied down to the fall like the old Eve. We are called to be new Eves; women lifted by grace and purpose.
In becoming new Eves, it is easier for you and I to fulfil God’s original commandment to be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth and subdue it. In other words, in order to fulfil your God-given desire to have a family while having a hugely successful career, you need to be more like the woman God wanted you to be from the beginning. You need to be a new Eve. Mary, Jesus’ mother is the New Eve; the only perfect woman who ever lived and to whom we look as our role model.
How Cherie Mamma helps
We teach the New Eve Fertility Method; a combination of natural techniques that give women the total package of health, confidence and influence to become the women that God created them to be so that they can have the family and careers they are called to have and transform the world. It is based on Catholic principles of natural fertility, of femininity and of work.
The New Eve Fertility Method is much more than systems and methods, it is a movement to help the 21st century Catholic woman build her beautiful family and make an impact by activating her full potential the way she was created to.

How did Cherie Mamma come to be?
I founded Cherie Mamma several years ago after I lost my pregnancy in a stillbirth and the doctors couldn't explain why it happened. I began to explore a more natural approach for a healthy conception & pregnancy. I later qualified as a holistic fertility therapist and have supported several women on their motherhood journey.
As my career progressed, it became increasingly clear that having a healthy pregnancy and caring for our kids require an approach that covers not just our bodies, but our emotions, our mind and our soul & our environment. My Christian faith teaches that when God created us, He saw that it was very good (Gen 1:31). And given that He gave us the mandate to 'Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth & subdue it'; if we become the women He created us to be, it will become easier for us to have the family and the impact He wants us to have.
The Cherie Mamma journey is often reflective of my own personal journey; I often draw on my life experiences and growth to push the boundaries of Cherie Mamma. That is why Cherie Mamma is not your typical organisation for women or fertility therapy clinic and why I am so passionate about what I teach.
