GLOW is a motherhood immersion to nourish you as a mother and support you to glow from the inside out.

It’s a safe and supportive space for you to feel seen, heard, held, connected, supported and nourished in motherhood.

Within GLOW you will be immersed in all things:

  1. Mindset: your beliefs and state of mind that shape how you make sense of the world and yourself
  2. Matrescence: the physical, emotional, hormonal and social transition to becoming a mother
  3. Mothering: the thinking and doing work of motherhood
  4. Maternal health and wellness: your health and wellbeing during pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal period
  5. Managing: embracing your day-to-day in the most effective and joyful way possible
Because you were never meant to do this alone.

The GLOW backstory

At Team BB we believe that she who does the holding needs to be held. That’s you we’re talking about – the mother. Precious, valuable, worthy and often the glue of your family.

However, what we encounter all too often is women on the journey of motherhood feeling lost, isolated, depleted, and invisible. I’ve been in that place and felt that way, and it’s awful. That has been the launching pad for me to explore the questions: How and why do mothers end up feeling like that? Why does it have to be this way? What can we do to better support mothers? I’ve made the decision I will do all I can in the time that I have to ensure other Mums don’t end up feeling like that.

Team BB’s mission is supporting women to thrive in motherhood. Why? Because we were never meant to do this alone.

It’s fascinating and phenomenal what we now know about child development. But somewhere along the line our society forgot about mother development: the inner split, identity shift, and complete transformation of the woman within (and beyond) the role of the mother.

We offer an incredible six month live coaching program – Illuminate – for mothers who are ready for deeper self-exploration and implementing change in their lives, however we identified a gap: women who want growth and support but the larger investment and commitment of the coaching program isn’t a fit for them right now.

After years of the concept bubbling away and the true need for this revealing itself, in November 2022 GLOW was birthed.

What does it mean to

GLOW in motherhood?

Imagine a campfire burning beneath a clear star-dotted sky.

This campfire represents your inner light – the true you – the you when you are at your best and feeling most ‘you.’ The true you without the shoulds, pressure and expectation; the you doing what you really love and are really good at, tapping into your innate creativity and gifts.

When you feel lost in motherhood, you have turned your back and are walking away from your campfire without a flashlight. You are getting further from your true self and more into your ‘not self.’ As you do, everything feels darker, colder, scarier, harder, you trip over more, feel more alone and your fight or flight system is activated.

In GLOW, you are walking toward your campfire. It had never stopped burning, although you couldn’t see it when your back was turned, you were outward facing, busy, mothering, focused on everyone and everything else. However, your campfire was always there, ready to guide you home to yourself.

You come now and sit around the campfire, feeling its warmth, hearing its crackle, feeling safer by the moment. You relax, smile, begin to feel more ‘you’ although ‘you’ is different now and you’ve been on a journey. And do you know the best thing? As you look around, I am there, my team is there, other mothers are there, sitting in a circle around the campfire with you. And as you learn, connect, are nourished and stoke your fire, you begin to listen and honour, explore your needs, wants and desires in a sisterhood that ‘gets it.’ 

“Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.” – Maya Angelou

GLOW is all about returning to yourself in a safe and nourishing space. Because when you do, when you listen to your inner whispers, reconnect with who you are, honour your wants, needs and desires, you can create a fulfilling motherhood experience with you at the top of the to-do list. 

GLOW is all about nurturing this inner light, your light that shines from within, so that you are glowing from the inside out in motherhood. You are not meant to struggle and trudge through your days. You are here to shine your light and offer your gifts to the world and the power to everything you want is inside of you.

And we all know that when we’re at our best as Mums, that rubs off on our children, our relationships and well, everything.

Q&A with Benita

These calls are all about supporting you to gain the most from your GLOW membership. Have your questions answered, experience hot seat coaching with Benita, learn and grow in a supportive small group environment. These calls will be recorded so if you can’t make it live, you can catch up by watching the recording.

Mother’s Circle with Brielle

Circle is a space where you can come and be you. A space for you to pause. A space where you can speak your truth in that moment, whether it is that you need to release something, you want to celebrate something or you want to feel like someone is really listening to you. A space where you will be listened to without interruption or anyone giving any advice or coaching. A space where you get to listen to other womens experiences and realise that you are not alone in yours. A space where you will feel held.

We will begin with being guided through a short practice to reconnect back to you, which may be short visualisation and journaling, and then everyone gets a chance to share what is on their heart and mind. During the sharing only the women sharing speaks and there is no sharing of advice or interruption. Dependent on time, we may finish the circle with some gentle movement or intention setting for the months ahead.

Mother’s Circle calls will not be recorded.

Masterclass with Guest Expert

Every quarter we will have a guest expert come in to host a masterclass based around the theme of the month in which they specialise. We are excited to introduce you to these incredible women and expand the circle of support you have in your life! The masterclasses will be recorded so if you can’t make it live, you can catch up by watching the recording.

You are going to love receiving Glimmers text messages from Benita every second afternoon. These will be short ‘glimmers’ of hope, encouragement and wisdom to give you a lift and a gentle hug when you’re hitting the wall of decision fatigue and peak mothering time late in the afternoon. In the moments when you are wondering if you can go on, we will be there to remind you that you can.

You were never meant to do motherhood alone. When you join GLOW you automatically become part of a community of GLOW women who ‘get it’ and are riding the same motherhood rollercoaster you are, wearing multiple hats and juggling all the things as you are. The GLOW community is a no-judgement, inclusive, supportive and safe space for mothers at any age and stage, all there for the same reason – to GROW. CONNECT. GLOW.

Each month we will offer a welcome call for new members who have joined since the previous call so that you can meet and get to know each other! We want you to feel comfortable and connected within the GLOW online community, starting with some familiar faces who are coming in at the same time as you.

A Clarity Coaching Call is a private 1:1 coaching opportunity with Benita via Zoom. Have 60 minutes of direct and uninterrupted access to Benita as your coach, guide, mentor, reflector, and motivator to support you to thrive in all areas of your life.

Meet the GLOW Team

Benita Bensch is a Mum of four, coach to mothers, certified motherhood studies practitioner, bestselling author, speaker and primary producer. She and her husband Adam and their sons aged 4 to 8 run a mixed farm west of Moonie in Queensland.

From a career in the beef industry, to public relations, building a successful business in rural marketing and communications, then evolving into coaching in 2013, helping people has always been at the heart of Benita’s work. And now, with the support of her virtual team, Benita is on a mission to help mothers globally to thrive. Through her transformative programs she helps women feeling lost in motherhood to find their spark again, reclaim their sense of self and live life by their design.

Her desire to specifically support mothers was borne from her own health and wellbeing challenges on the journey to and through motherhood. Whether it’s helping mothers rediscover who they are after babies, creating clarity and confidence in their career, managing the daily juggle, or setting personal goals that align with them becoming the best version of themselves – that is what Benita does on a daily basis with beautiful souls across the country.

Benita is also passionate about the power of vulnerability through storytelling. In 2019 she published her first book The Art of Trying: An Intimate Account of My Journey to Conceive, which was the stepping stone to her work with mothers. The Art of Trying is her personal account of infertility, pregnancy loss, endometriosis and the struggle of trying to conceive when living remotely. This collection of her journal entries, photos, experiences and anecdotes has connected women the world over, and received Amazon Bestseller Status. 

Benita is focused on creating a community of mothers reconnecting with their own true strength and possibilities, because she who does the holding needs to be held, and every single woman deserves to live to her highest potential and fullest expression of herself.

Benita invited Brielle to be a part of GLOW after feeling a strong connection with her through their mutual Motherhood Studies Practitioner Certification with Motherhood Sociologist and mentor Dr Sophie Brock.

Brielle is an experienced and Accredited Social Worker, Counsellor, Women’s Circle and early parenting group facilitator with a passion for supporting women in the areas of conception, pregnancy and motherhood.

Brielle provides counselling and support to clients experiencing challenges relating to their conception, birth and motherhood journey, including assisted conception, unresolved feelings around a birth, mild to moderate anxiety and depression, overwhelm, early parenting, adjusting to motherhood, changes in identity and relationships, guilt, anger and self-care.

She is passionate about parents’ wellbeing and challenging the societal myth of the perfect mother, supporting women to create a motherhood experience that meets their needs as well as those of their children. By facilitating a sense of being deeply heard, Brielle supports her clients through their challenges to finding more joy and fulfilment in motherhood.

Brielle has almost 20years experience working with women individually and in groups in the areas of motherhood and young parents support, family violence, homelessness. She also has additional training in Non-Directive Perinatal Counselling, Motherhood Studies, Matrescence Education, Mindful Early Parenting, Birth Story Listening and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

Most importantly Brielle is a mum to four children aged from early 20’s to preschool and has been through many ups and downs in her parenting journey!

Jenna loves being a part of the Benita Bensch team and working alongside Benita to bring her visions to life. 

Every quarter we will have a guest expert come in to host a masterclass based around the theme of the month in which they specialise. We are excited to introduce you to these incredible women and expand the circle of support you have in your life!
