Frequently asked questions:

Who is this group for?  

Mums of babies under 2 years  

What will you leave with?

This small group offers new mothers a chance to talk about their birth, changes in life and relationships after the birth, and the emotional challenges of having a baby when you are (possibly) far away from home. All facilitated and supported by a professional psychologist.  

 

Becoming a mum is an exciting but daunting time, and having a baby/toddler at home is a time of emotional upheaval, even under the best circumstances.  

 

Previous group members have spoken of really valuing the chance to learn from, and connect to, other mums and learn some techniques for managing stress. These groups give voice to some of the more unspoken, difficult parts of parenting, and see that we really are all in it together!  

Each week will be focused around a topic including: 

  • What is compassion: how does this impact on ourselves as mums, and our parenting? 

  • Stress and worry in early parenting: what brings you stress, and some techniques for managing it.

  • Am I my parent? Thinking together about our childhoods, and what of those we consciously (or unconsciously) bring into our own parenting journeys. 

  • Values: What keeps you going, and in what direction?  What should you bring with you?  An open mind, listening ear

"The group therapy session for moms was incredibly helpful in learning about my postpartum experience. I was struck by the strong sense of solidarity among the group, despite our different backgrounds and experiences.."
