Mummas support has been designed to support emotional well-being, so that you can enjoy parenthood.

We have designed the Mummas Support Group specifically for pregnant mums and mums with babies (mums of toddlers and older children are welcome to attend, but sadly we cannot allow children 2yrs and older at the group)

We all know that motherhood can be extremely tough and challenging, but for some it can seem excessively so- perhaps a far cry from the unadulterated joy we are 'supposed' to feel. You may feel overwhelmed, exhausted, isolated, extremely anxious, unable to cope, or unhappy. You may feel guilty or like a bad mother because of the way you feel. You may feel unable to articulate the way you feel even to those closest to you. You may feel bewildered by the whole experience. This is where Mummas support can try to help.

How can Mummas Postnatal Support Group help you?
Motherhood can be extremely tough and challenging. Maybe your mood has dipped following the birth? Or the lack of sleep has got the better of you? You might be finding that you notice worry thoughts seem to be taking up your time, or you are struggling to feel joy despite feeling that you ‘should be’ enjoying things?

Despite motherhood at times leaving us feeling overwhelmed, extremely anxious, unable to cope, or unhappy, it can feel scary to share this with others and you might feel unable to articulate the way you feel even to those closest to you. Here is where the Mummas support group can help

 Mummas support group provides a safe, secure and caring environment where you will be able to:

 -       Take some time to check in with and acknowledge how you are feeling

-       Hear from trained experts about how to develop coping strategies

-       Learn about the benefits of day-to-day techniques, including thought challenging, mindfulness and relaxation

-       Meet and be encouraged to chat with other mums experiencing the same or similar difficulties

-       Receive further information about where to seek specialist help

The group was set up by Nicky Woodhatch from Mummas and Beans following the tragic news in Oct 15 that one of her mums took their own life - "When I posted on our closed facebook group what had happened and how awful it was, so many mums came forward saying they had felt isolated, stigmatized and unsure where to turn for help, hence Mummas Support group was born" 

Our Mums Say:

"Nicky's laid back, friendly and supportive approach is a huge relief during the early days of being a new parent. The calming techniques she taught me were an absolute lifesaver and I honestly don't know what we'd have done without her. Thank you so much Nicky!"

"I just thought I'd add, that I've really enjoyed the Daisy Birthing sessions, I think they are utterly brilliant, and have definitely prepared me for the impending birth - dare I say I'm actually looking forward to it??!?"

"These classes were the favourite part of my week from birthing right through to rising one. I will be back with baba number two!"

"I want to say a huge thank you to you for adding so much to my maternity leave. Through Daisy Birthing I've made friends who have been a huge support to both me and Cleo and will continue to be a big part of our lives. I hope you know what a community of happy and confident Mums you're developing through Mummas. Thank you."
