Hello and welcome! I’m Benita.
Some people call me B.

I’m a mother of four boys, writer, coach, entrepreneur and Australian farmer.

I’m on a mission to live my best life and help others to do the same.

I believe in the power of vulnerability through storytelling to start and shape meaningful conversations.

I’m passionate about supporting and empowering women, and facilitating authentic discussion around topics encountered on the journey to, and through, motherhood like endometriosis, infertility, miscarriage, IVF, pregnancy, mindset and mental health.

Read more about my story and how our challenge to create our family shaped me, and led me to write The Art of Tryingcreate The Art of Trying Affirmation Cards set, and The Art of Trying Mindset Mentorship.

The Art of Trying

Amazon International Bestseller

Have you ever wanted something so badly, yet no matter how hard you tried, for a time you couldn’t achieve it?

Do you long for a baby and are going through treatment to become pregnant?

Are you having a hard time coping with infertility?

I did too.

The Art of Trying is an intimate account of my journey to conceive our children, stemming from the journal that I kept over that seven year period. I’ve not held anything back – I go deep into the dark, and the light, of what I experienced and what I learned – about infertility and treatments, loss, mental health, the strength of my mind and body, and my relationships – to receive the most precious gifts in life.
