URBANMAMA: Radical self-care for women – returning Summer 2019!

We are redesigning this course to reflect the social changes and updates in nutrition science. If you have any input for what you would like to see on the course please get in touch via our social media channels, email niamh@thewellnessclinic.ie or fill in the contact form below. See you soon!


We are tired of putting everyone else before ourselves. We are stressed, anxious, burnt-out. We are sick of the pressure to be perfect. We are DONE just “getting by” and never realising our dreams. We are at the end of the line and something has to change.

We are calling you to join our revolution. URBANMAMA is a programme which gives you the tools to care for yourself for a change. We help you get back to the woman you know you are meant to be.

Not a mother? Not a problem. URBANMAMA is for every woman of every age who needs to prioritise herself before she loses her reason.

Part education, part life-coaching, this 6 part programme takes you from losing the guilt through managing your PMT, positive body image, healthy habits, to following your life-long dreams. Laughs and a warm atmosphere make these workshops truly unique.
