Leah Hughes

Inspirational motivational for women's well being & in particular supporting new mothers

Leah's key--note speech is titled Comfort Leads To Confidence.

Leah found her authenticity through the dynamic words of Dianne Von Furstenburg's famous quote “I didn’t always know what I wanted to do, but I knew the kind of woman I wanted to be”.  As a little girl Leah knew she would somehow positively impact women's live's, she just didn't know at the time her passion would develop and belong to supporting mothers.

Leah found her purpose and passion as a woman through her own journey of motherhood. Adjusting to new normals of what your body endures, learning the art of breastfeeding, little sleep and self doubt can be overwhelming. It's as Leah adapted to motherhood and learnt to lean in to conversations that she found fundamentally every mother wants the very best for her children and for herself, but it is through our own uniqueness that we grow in to our better selves.

3 years ago Leah started her business Gentle Breastfeeding Support to motivate, encourage and support mothers to reach their breastfeeding goals.  Leah strongly believes that when we support mothers we empower the next generation.

It's through hundreds of interactions with mothers that Leah has developed and written her inspiring speech Comfort Leads To Confidence.  It speaks to the hearts of women everywhere, it dynamically highlights new mothers fragility as an innate power that is something to be reckoned with.

Accepting your new normal is powerful, it allows us to be strong in the moments we are feeling fragile, but most of all Leah's speech empowers women to find their comfort which ultimately leads them to their confidence.  

Leah's speech is a journey and one she would be privileged  to share for International Women's Day.
