Flourish For Mums

21 ways to thrive with self-care and acceptance

Planting the seeds of self-care, love, and acceptance.

Trusting, that as those seeds are nurtured, a greater love will grow, thrive, and flourish throughout the world.

Motherhood carries an unexpected, yet evolutionary path of self-development and self discovery. The weight of social media, societal expectations, and an ever-evolving concept of what it means to be a good parent plays heavily on the minds of mothers. Flourish for Mums: 21 ways to thrive with self-care and acceptance is a much-needed circuit breaker.

  • 21 essential wellbeing principles to release ‘mother guilt’, embrace acceptance, and feel self-empowered.
  • Inspires mothers to cultivate inner strength and lifelong wellbeing, offering simple, yet powerful self-nurture strategies.
  • A necessary guide for mothers to step into a new zone of selfcare – honouring themselves and accepting their worth whilst celebrating the children in their lives.
  • Allows a mother to feel understood and valued as an individual, who is also fulfilling a mother role, with its many joys and challenges.
  • The perfect gift book for all mothers – especially Birthdays, Mother’s Day, Get Well soon, New arrival (whether it be a brand-new mum, or mum welcoming another child)

“This book is so timely and yet I wish I had it for my own first years as a mum almost 17 years ago. The pressures we put on ourselves to be perfect, to meet unrealistic standards while juggling family life, careers and relationships is unsustainable. Sonia’s beautiful book is a chance to stop and recalibrate. Beautifully written and with easy to follow ideas. I love the way she weaves her own journey as a mother into the narrative, it’s honest and real and so easy to relate to. A must read for any mum.”

– Tina Harris aka Lah-Lah

“As a psychologist I see firsthand some of the more difficult experiences that come with being a mum. After working with a large number of mothers, I have noticed they all have one thing in common: they are really, really stressed out. Sonia’s Flourish For Mums fills in the missing pieces, by giving mums an easy-to-understand guide to the important but often challenging motherhood journey.”

– Funda Yolal
Principal Psychologist and Director of Tiny Terrors


“This uplifting book is a gift that every mother should own. Flourish for Mums contains a treasure-trove of love and support – and let’s face it – we often tend to place unrealistic expectations on ourselves, and what we really need is the reassurance that we’re doing the best we can – and that’s more than good enough. Sonia Bestulic has truly captured what it means to ‘flourish’, with her heartfelt, wise and practical strategies and inspiring quotes that speak to the soul of our humanness. 

Her gentle, uplifting words teach us to nurture ourselves, thrive and grow with self-reflection, belief, care and acceptance. This guide empowers us to embrace our inner joy and perfectly imperfect selves so that we can bloom like the most radiant flower in the bunch.  Highly relatable and highly recommended.”

– Romi Sharp


“There is so much “real” in this book. So much that resonates. It is promoted as a book for new mums but I think this book has a much bigger audience; it’s a book we can all find something to take with us on our life’s journey.  A book for life.”

– Carol from Reading, Writing and Reisling blog
