Hello, I’m Jess, founder of the Mama Hive.
I’m a former Events Director, based in Hertford, Herts and mum to twin boys Gus and Jude.
Back in 2017 after having the twins and finding myself unable to find a position that worked around the boys, where I didn't need to sell a kidney to pay nursery fees and train fares - I set up Social Mama Hertford. Events designed by mums for all women, as I was desperate to get out of the house, meet other local mums and have a glass of wine and a conversation in peace.
Through Social Mama I was amazed to discover a huge number of women who, like me, were struggling to work flexibly within their careers after having children, so they have set up their own businesses, allowing them to do what they love AND juggle kids at the same time.
There is a massive talent pool of creative, business-savvy women in our local area, but there was nothing available to help bring us all together in one place. And so the Mama Hive was born - a home for all of us, allowing us to work together, sharing our knowledge and cheering each other on, every step of the way.
So what are you waiting for? Join Us.
