“Rock the Bump creates beautiful belly castings for expectant mothers across the country. Inspired by her own pregnancy, Zoe understands the bond between mothers and their bumps and allows women to cherish that special connection through wonderful castings. I wish her every success in the future.
On Wednesday 21st November 2018, I was recognised by British businesswoman, Jacqueline Gold CBE, for my success as a female entrepreneur, and awarded with a prestigious #WOW badge.
I was one of three winners selected by Jacqueline after entering ‘Women on Wednesday’ – a competition launched by Jacqueline in 2011 to celebrate the growing number of UK female entrepreneurs and businesswomen.
Women on Wednesday (#WOW) takes place every week and is run through Jacqueline’s Twitter page. When selecting the winners, Jacqueline looks for businesses that are interesting, that have strong brand values and that she thinks have potential to grow and succeed in their industry. She looks for quality products and services, well designed websites and entrepreneurs who demonstrate good business acumen and who have spotted a gap in the market that meets the consumer’s needs.
“I am so incredibly proud to have been selected as a #WOW winner. A little recognition goes a long way when you’re a busy mum of three, working hard to grow a small, creative business against all odds. Rock the Bump pregnant belly casting is now in its 4th year. I'm the busiest I've ever been, with women from across the UK choosing to work with Rock the Bump and the business expanding with a small team of belly cast artists having completed their training with me. I could have thrown in the towel more times than I care to remember but I've always held on to the belief that I could, and would, eventually build a successful business doing something I genuinely LOVE, creating beautiful belly bump and belly bowl keepsake casts for pregnant women. Being recognised by the fabulous Jacqueline Gold has given me a huge boost and the much needed momentum to take Rock the Bump pregnant belly casting on to the next level in 2019 when I will be launching a bespoke maternity package with my good friend and fellow mum of three, Sian Louise Photography AND kicking off the New Year with a trip to Bedfordshire my second ‘Love Islander’ bump cast!” – Zoe Keeping, Founder & Belly Cast Artist, Rock the Bump pregnant belly casting
