Hey I'm


About Me


Becoming an author was a gift from my daughter as my debut book ‘What About Adjoa?’ was all the things she said as she was becoming a big sister. 


As a multi-faceted woman I run Mummy’s Day Out which is a network for mothers reducing isolation and creating spaces where mothers are inspired, encouraged and empowered on their motherhood journey.

Advocate / Speaker / Host

My journey of coming from adversity to success offers real grassroots inspiration to audiences and takes them on a journey which is relatable.  While my hosting skills are fun I aim to ensure audiences are engaged and the purpose of the event is achieved. 

I advocate for women using the maternity services within the UK specifically those who have experienced Hyperemesis or are from Black and Brown communities. 

My Story

Hey All, I am Rachael Buabeng and I love to talk about motherhood and mumpreneurship. As a wife and mum of 2, bonus mum to 1, I’m all about things that empower, inspire and encourage women and mothers. Once upon a time, I was just a girl who wanted 6 children and having gone on my own motherhood journey I realised this was no longer realistic.


In 2015, I started a network for mothers Upon giving birth to my first child I wanted to bring all the new mothers around me together for a little bit of mum-fun with a difference, offering a comfortable environment for mothers to do nice things with their children in tow thus breaking the feeling of isolation that many mothers experience when transitioning into motherhood and for those who struggle to find childcare. I hosted events for mothers that empowered, encouraged and inspired them, and gradually built a community of Mums across the UK.

In summer 2019, I was awarded the EYMA Inspirational Mum Award and the GLO MAMA UK Best Community Group.

Becoming a mum wasn't the easiest journey for me as I suffered from a pregnancy related condition Hyperemesis Gravidarum which is severe vomiting and nausea in pregnancy so in 2017, having given birth to my son, my daughter was very vocal about her concerns especially after 37 weeks of practically being my part of my care system. I I had documented some of the things my daughter had asked me about her new role as big sister. I put her questions into my self-published children's book called ‘What About Adjoa?’ As soon as it was released the very mum community that I had built supported me and purchased the book. Due to some negative experiences and the impact of the Hyperemesis Gravidarum condition I released a book on the subject and also became engulfed in trying to improve outcomes for mothers. This led me into the role of Maternity Voice Partnership co chair and a Hyperemesis Gravidarum advocate.

My goal?

I want to continue to run a network that genuinely supports mothers, write a collection of diverse books for children, and advocate for maternal health issues.

What About Adjoa?

Adjoa is excited about the arrival of her baby brother but she begins to notice that things have changed. At times Adjoa feels like she is being left out and asks the question ‘What about me?’ Throughout the story, the answers to Adjoa’s questions help her to learn that despite her feelings, being a big sister isn’t that bad after all.
