Our Story

Allison Proud Happy Mama Founder

In 2019, Proud Happy Mama was founded by mom of two, Allison Banfield.

Backed with a Master’s Degree in Public Health and Graduate Certificate in Environmental Health from Edith Cowan University and a Bachelor of Science in Health Promotion from Curtin University, as well as a 10+ year career in health and wellness, Allison created Proud Happy Mama as a way for mothers to connect, support, and empower each other.

It was her goal to create a safe place for moms to learn, explore, and embrace the raw emotions that they are faced with in their everyday motherhood journey and to realize that they are not alone in their struggles, successes, and dreams.

You can find some of her articles featured in places like Moms.com, Woman’s Day, Mother.ly, Her View From Home, Kidspot, Love What Matters, Natural Parenting Magazine, and more!
