Welcome to the Strong for Everyday Podcast with me Funmi Olatoye.
I’m a mum, personal trainer and fitness instructor and I’m the co-founder of Strong for Everyday, a platform that is all about empowering mums to feel their very best. Strong for Everyday is built on a system called The 4Ms which are Mindset, Menu, Movement and Me Time and each week I’ll be bringing you a new episode to cover one of these 4 key principles.
I’m so passionate about mums feeling great not just physically, but also mentally and I believe the best way to empower mums is with knowledge.

What is Maternal and Neonatal Advocacy with Karen-Grace Siriboe
In this week's episode I'm talking with Karen-Grace Siriboe. Karen is a communications and PR specialist in maternal and neonatal advocacy as well as a trained midwife.
In this episode we discuss the term advocacy in relation to pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes; how can expectant mothers and their families advocate for themselves at any stage during pregnancy and labour and how this also forms part of the discussion around women from BAME communities being 5 times more likely to die from complications during pregnancy and childbirth.
Karen will be speaking at a virtual conference on Saturday 7th November, called BAME Birthing with Colour. To register, go to www.bamematernity.com.
