In the safety of a local community hall, five mothers meet regularly with their young children, to share, compare, empathize and comfort each other during the difficult first years of motherhood.
The Good Enough Mums Club is a new musical, produced, written, directed and performed by Moms, featuring songs such as “Only My Nose Is The Same”, “The Price To Be Paid” and “WTF’s Up With Kid’s TV ? “. Get through the ups, downs and sleep deprivation of motherhood. From pee on sticks to sagging breasts, they share the love and dispel myths with enough wipes on hand to wipe away tears and clean up snotty laughs. When the Council threatens to shut down their local playgroup, five women reunited by motherhood, overcome their isolation, loneliness, judgment and perfectionism only to find that they are stronger as a group than as individuals, and that sometimes being good enough is better. An Evening With The Good Enough Mums Club is a concert tour ahead of the full music tour in 2023.
Writer Emily Beecher said: âThe Good Enough Mums Club was born from my darkest days of motherhood battling postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis. When I shared my story, other women shared their own experiences with me, and it was so awesome to realize all these things that I thought I was alone in were actually things that connected us. After the last 18 incredibly difficult months, I think we need to remember more. than ever that we are together and celebrate all the things, good and bad, that unite us as moms. “
