Who is Villagehood Australia?

DINAH'S STORY

VILLAGEHOOD AUSTRALIA is the very first South Australian one stop centre for mothers, a real village where mothers are at the centre of everything we do and offer.

Hello!

I’m Dinah Thomasset, Founder of Villagehood Australia, mother of two young children and multiple hat-wearer.

Becoming a mother in Australia, 18,000km away from my village, was the toughest challenge of my life. The strong, confident woman I had been, disappeared from the moment my first child was born. The situation worsened when my second child arrived and she barely slept.  I found myself in a dark hole and my health deteriorated and I ended up in hospital.

 

Waiting for test results, I imagined the worst. I told my husband: “If anything happens to me, get over it and find our children a mother, any woman who’ll love them.”

​Then it hit me: I am that woman. Loving them is enough. I AM ENOUGH. Those three words resonated deeply and brought me back to LIFE. I began feeling better; my old self reappeared.

A few months later, I visited Morocco and reconnected with my village. That’s when it all clicked – I needed to open a centre for mothers. A place where all mums could feel safe and supported, creating a village of likeminded women who’ll transform motherhood so that we, and all future mothers, feel visible, valued and loved.
