Fill Your Cup
WELCOME TO FILL YOUR CUP
Imagine a world where after the birth of your child, you returned home and had a dedicated person whose sole job was to look after YOU. Provide support and nourishment for YOU. Someone to make delicious nutrient-rich meals, fold that stack of washing, settle your baby while you rest and lend a non-judgmental ear when you’ve had a tough night.
Enter stage left… This person is known as a Fill Your Cup postpartum doula.
Micka and Renee are trained postpartum doulas who met whilst completing their PhDs at Monash University. Renee focused on the biochemistry of the immune system, whilst Micka pursued her passion for women’s health. They’ve taken divergent career paths but continued their friendship throughout the years. Their daughters, born almost 365 days apart, sparked a new bond. Motherhood. From there, came a new and undiscovered appreciation for mothers and matrescence – the transition of a maiden into a mother… and Fill Your Cup was born…
Our philosophy is simple:
Mother the mumma, nurture the nurturer and provide women the opportunity to fall in love with their postpartum experience
Our evidence-based menu is designed to nourish and strengthen you during the fourth trimester. As the weeks progress, the menu is curated to your specific needs with a focus on organic nutrient-dense foods that promote the love hormone, oxytocin. Our meals are warm, restorative and assist in promoting better breastfeeding outcomes for you and your baby.
Our main meals may include: Mexican-style Mothers food bowls; Hunter chicken stew, creamy coconut dahl and nourishing ginger fried rice. At least one vegetarian/vegan option each week.
Our sweeties may include: dark chocolate + goji lactation cookies, gooey chocolate brownies, blueberry and oat pancakes and dark chocolate tahini fudge.

Space & Time
Professional organiser, Julie Cliff founded Space & Time to make home simpler through decluttering, systems and habits. A simpler home means:
- More time for the important stuff.
- More time with your kids and family.
- More time to write that novel or finally get those odd jobs around the house done.
Space & Time offers one-on-one, hands-on help if it’s all too much to do on your own and/or online programs, tools and templates to get you started on your own.
