Meet our guest speakers
Jenya Emets, CEO & Founder of Cloud Twelve.
As a professional naturopath with a qualification in Herbal Medicine from the College of Naturopathic Medicine, Jenya focuses on a holistic approach to wellness, which encompasses emotional, mental and physical health. She also believes that everyone is unique in their physiology, which is influenced by genetic, environmental and social factors, and therefore bespoke herbal preparations and personalised diet work best to correct health imbalances. “Ultimately, by boosting general vitality, restoring digestive capacity and removing toxins we can empower our body to overcome most chronic conditions, including mental, reproductive and immunological problems.” Jenya will talk about natural ways to enhance immune system for mothers and babies, focusing on plant based remedies and other naturopathic alternatives to pharmaceutical medication. Herbs have been used for millennia to ward off bacterial, viral or fungal infections. You will have an opportunity to taste medicinal vinegars and tinctures and learn how to make immune-boosting home-made remedies.
Dina Maktabi, Founder of award-winning website Kensington Mums
Dina is a contented Mummy of two healthy and vivacious kids and a Kensington lover. It all started when she had her first baby. It occurred to her that she is not the only one struggling with interrupted sleep, being on call 24/7 with no time off. Kensington Mums is a comprehensive one stop shop for mums on their parenting journey, who want to be part of a bigger network to support each other, read interesting articles, see what’s happening in London and attend stylish events. It’s a place for new mums and experienced mums to connect and bond with like-minded people. The platform includes local, ex-pat and international mums who want to tap into the network for its blend of events, advice and connectivity. In an age where networking has become increasingly digital, Kensington Mums is successfully illustrating that the online landscape can be a fantastic resource for creating relationships which cross over into ‘real’ life. Dina will be focusing on the mental health of mothers and why it is important for their physical health and wellbeing. Dina will be sharing tips on self care and making time for “me-time” as a priority in our busy modern lives.
Jade Ireland and Mary Van der Westhuizen, Bellota Baby
Launched in March 2018 Bellota Baby is a new concept in fresh, nutritionally balanced, plant-based Baby & Toddler food for busy parents who have become frustrated at the lack of natural, unprocessed weaning & infant foods currently on the market.
Founded by London based mother of two, Jade Ireland, Bellota Baby is driven by a desire to create fresh, organic meals & snacks, packaged in non-toxic, recyclable packaging. Developed with nutritionist & weaning expert Mary van der Westhuizen the range uses only the finest natural & organic produce using nature’s larder as the source of ingredients.
Jade comments: ‘Current research into the commercial baby food market doesn’t make for easy reading. With an average shelf life of two years why would you feed your baby food you wouldn’t be happy eating yourself?”
Bellota Baby advocates introducing babies to an organic whole-food diet of natural food as soon as they begin to wean. They have their own unspoiled taste buds & a flavour for pure nature.’
