Introducing Rent a Mum
By Krissy Smith

I decided to start this service not long ago as it’s something I enjoy, it’s a way for you to be able to experience being cared for without it being sexual. Sometimes just having someone there to help you out, cook you a meal, or even just to sit down and have a chat can be really awesome.

It’s a completely judgment-free service, sometimes it’s easier to talk to a stranger about the things happening in your life than talking to friends and family. So I thought why not? I can potter around do some laundry, tidy up your place then make you a coffee and we can sit and chat about anything you want.

I believe that we are all in need of someone to just listen to what we are thinking about and to get some perspective on our lives.

I have been taking it with me on my travels around Australia and I would love to grow it and spend more time with people. I like cleaning and cooking for others, sometimes coming home to a clean home and a fresh home-cooked meal can be something that makes you feel relaxed, takes away some of the stress of life, and just helps you wake up in the morning feeling good about yourself.

I saw this video a few years ago – If You Want to Change the World, Start Off by Making Your Bed – William McRaven, US Navy Admiral, and sometimes we need a little bit of help to get there you know. And I would love to give you this help. The state of our home indicates the state of our mind. If i can help one person improve their life or give one person some kind of support to help make a small change to feel better about themselves, it will be truly amazing.
