For mothers who sense, “It’s not just me”.
MGM supports you to make positive changes for yourself, your family and your community. Click on the buttons to take you to the specific services:
Women gather to connect, share and reflect on motherhood, supporting one another to reconnect with themselves and our collective wisdom.
WHY IT MATTERS
When women embark upon matrescence (the process of becoming a mother), we realise we are no longer who we were and are not sure who we are now.
In our Women’s Circle, the theory of matrescence gives mothers space to explore their experiences through self-reflection and sharing opportunities. We also incorporate gentle movement and meditation.
Each Circle has a distinct theme related to core areas of a woman’s life affected by matrescence. MGM Circles are best suited to mothers emerging from the first year of motherhood, wondering, “What now?”.
WHAT IT INCLUDES
Places in the Circle are limited to 12 people to ensure a meaningful experience where everyone has the opportunity to be seen and held.
As well as a nourishing experience, the ticket price includes tea, snacks and lunch catered by The Golden Month.
Each session is from 9.00am to 1.00pm at Sophia, Cumberland Park.
For the price of a fancy dinner, you can receive 12 hours of self-care and connection, plus three delicious meals, snacks and tea.
Mailing list subscribers are always the first to hear about upcoming gatherings. You can also check out the MGM Humanitix page to see if there are any open Circles coming up.
We can facilitate a Women’s Circle for you.
“I want to thank you for yesterday, it was really emotive, powerful and a lot of food for thought.”
I was nervous before I arrived not knowing any of the other mothers, but as soon as I entered the space I felt at ease. There was a deep sense of calmness and openness to the space and I really feel you set the atmosphere well.
"I absolutely loved it. I left feeling calm, energised and seen."
I didn’t know what to expect attending my first Women’s Circle. I had never done anything like it before. I really enjoyed the experience and I will be signing up for another one. I cannot recommend the experience highly enough.

"Attending a MGM Circle has created much needed space for myself."
I felt invigorated, grounded, and connected to myself afterward and found new patience and appreciation for my daughter.

“The personal is political.”
It’s often after becoming a mother that it becomes obvious to women that our modern systems of governance and infrastructure were built by and for men. We need to use our voices to advocate for a new way forward to make a change.
We need a future that values mothers, Mother Nature, and holds equal respect for the feminine alongside the masculine. We want to make the political process and public policy accessible to you.
The Parenthood community is working together to make Australia the best place in the world to be a parent. Because when parents are supported, children can thrive & our whole community is stronger.

BABES ON BIKES
Babes on Bikes is a campaign to make cycling safe and accessible for women and children in Adelaide.
We don’t believe signs and paint on the road are enough to keep us safe, we need separated bike paths that provide an integrated and direct route to the places we need to go.
We need investment in family friendly and female friendly cycling infrastructure in the inner suburbs of Adelaide and beyond, for our children and the planet.
Join campaign partners Bike Adelaide and Australian Parents for Climate Action.
Kidical Mass is more than just a protest, it gives children a voice, creating a positive vision for the future, connecting the young and old across the cycling community.

We presented a special holiday video update to elected representatives from the inner rim areas of Adelaide in December 2021.
Held on Saturday 6 November 2021 to coincide with the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021.
The protest parade was designed to be family-friendly and fun. There were no speeches. Instead, it was an hour of power as we rode, walked and pushed our way north from Tarntanyangga/Victoria Square to Pennington Gardens West.
Held on Sunday 10 April 2022, it gathered a group of like-minded parents and cyclists keen to see active travel become safer in the inner southwest through a direct, separated cycling link between Westside Bikeway along Barwell Avenue, across South Road, along Everard Avenue and then linking to Anzac Highway and the Parklands Trail.
