Posted on 13 February, 2019 at 2:45



NOMINATION CATEGORIES: INSPIRATIONAL MOTHER OF THE YEAR,MUM-OWNED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR &


MUMPRENEUR OF THE YEAR


Rachael Buabeng is wife, mother of two, step-mother of one and founder of Mummy's Day

Out.

At the tender age of eight years old Rachael was featured in the Newham Recorder having

raised money for charity stating that she would love to work with children. This manifested as

she grew and it was no surprise when Rachael worked in the childcare field and later went

on to qualify as a lecturer teaching childcare.


Rachael’s desire to have lots of children was no secret to anyone and she could often be

heard saying she wanted six children. Little did she know that carrying a child would be one

of the hardest things she has ever had to do. Despite her degrees and many achievements

pregnancy was completely out of her control and once she began trying for a baby with her

husband Rachael faced several challenges. The turbulence to becoming a mother was

overwhelming however Rachael eventually became pregnant and then was diagnosed with

hyperemesis. This condition was not known to anyone in the family. The road to motherhood

was not free from trails; Rachael dealt with pregnancy related illness’ and miscarriage but

didn't lose hope.


When Rachael finally gave birth to her daughter in 2015, she wanted to bring together all

the new mothers around her to socialise, be inspired and to encourage one another.

Rachael put together amazing, sold out social events in a gorgeous London hotel setting.

The events ranged from afternoon teas, luncheons and expanded to netwalking in the local

area, gaining sponsorship from major brands. 

At her events she hosts guest speakers. The guest speakers are from all walks of life and they

share their experiences and knowledge, often helping mothers overcome fears and gain the

motivation to take steps to achieve their life long dreams. The event facilitate all this for

mothers, with their children in tow, breaking down the all too common barriers of no

childcare for many and the feeling of isolation that many mothers experience while

transitioning into motherhood.


Now in  its 3rd year, Rachael has expanded Mummy's Day Out offering family fun

days for all the family members to enjoy. Using sought after child friendly venues Rachael

engages families not only from London but all around the country boasting crowds of over

200 people. She has also begun facilitating opportunities for families to attend training such

as first aid for parents.


Sporting the title mumpreneur with pride, Rachael has supported many small businesses

offering affordable vendor opportunities at events, giving exposure to such businesses often

run by mums too. This led to natural growth and launch of ‘Mum 2 Mumpreneur’ in 2018, a

roundtable event for mums in business. This offers mothers a space to network and gain

tips, support and guidance in growing/starting a business. Many of the attendees have

gained mentors, sponsorship and partnerships via this amazing network.


Having now had her second child Rachael’s pregnancy experience was again not free from

health struggles and was not free from adversity pushing her to tackle even greater

turbulence. This has only made Rachael more passionate about supporting mothers and

providing opportunities for them to be encouraged, empowered and inspired. Especially

encouraging conversation about topics often taboo in our communities such as child loss.

Mummy’s Day Out has grown into a large community with over 3500 followers and offers

opportunities for mothers to share their own motherhood narrative via its platform. In addition

to this Rachael has recently launched the insta-live segments where mothers are able to

gain knowledge and ask questions on important topics such as life insurance absolutely

FREE.


Rachael has selflessly helped several mothers find and fulfil their purpose by supporting

them to take the right steps towards their interests often signposting them to the right people

or giving them a helping hand. An example of this was during an admission to hospital

because of a serious illness in 2016, Rachael spent time communicating with a mother who

was launching a charity for premature babies. This organisation is now in its second year

and continuously salutes Rachael for her support.


Mummy's Day Out is for all ages and type of mother. The events and platform engages

people from all walks of life. So its not unusual to see Rachael’s mother who often attends

Mummy's Day Out events and leaves inspired saying ‘if only there were things like this in her

days’. In 2018, a significant achievement for Rachael was seeing the impact that Mummy's

Day Out events has had on her own mother who has now become a mumpreneur at 64

years of age.



We can not wait to celebrate this inspirational mother on the 30th of March 2019.
