Get to know me a little more.
Hello, I’m Jillian Foster, founder of Better Balanced Mums and a Naturopath on the beautiful Central Coast, NSW.
I am a degree-qualified Naturopath, writer and editor with over 12 years experience in the natural healthcare industry.
I have worked in a variety of roles including naturopathic private practice, content writing, editing, regulatory affairs, and product development.
My passion is in helping women achieve optimal health.
I started Better Balanced Mums as every day I see women and mothers struggling. It’s a tough gig, no doubt about it. You sacrifice a lot as a mother and this, understandably, creates imbalance.
The imbalance starts with those niggling health complaints, a result of you no longer prioritising yourself. The endless juggle between being a mother, a wife or partner, an employee, a boss, a friend, a daughter… it wears us all down after a while.
I live it
I’m a mum of two and have felt burnout and experienced hormone imbalances, all resulting from my role as a mum. Even as I sit here writing this I’ve been interrupted countless times by my children.
I’ve had to change my hat to fulfil all the roles expected of me and let’s face it, the huge pressure to do these roles perfectly. The reality is, we can’t all do these roles perfectly, nor should that be the expectation. The perfect mother does not exist!
What we can do, is nurture and support ourselves so we can nurture and support others.
My 5 core values
I want to use all the tools in my toolbox to help women take charge of their health and find more balance in their lives. My five core values are passion, honesty, respect, integrity and duty.
