About this group

In the early months after birth, it can be difficult to take time for yourself or pay attention to the many feelings that are invariably a part of new motherhood. Attending to these in a therapeutic environment can help ease the process of being with your baby, and resolve some anxiety and confusing moods that often accompany this experience. It can help to have a space where you can safely share all that is going on for you, and receive compassionate support from psychotherapists and other mothers who understand what you’re going through.

Why this group

The aim of this group is to support you – 

  • share and acknowledge what you’re going through amid a supportive community
  • develop skills to calm your own fears and anxieties so that you can respond to the baby in the way they need you to
  • become more aware of what you’re bringing to your parenting from your past concerns
  • understand your own needs as a person and mother, and locate resources to fulfill those 
  • safely share and receive support for all your concerns including those on breastfeeding, sleeping, changes in your body and any other issues that are important to you.

Who should join

  • If you have had a biological birth in the last 18 months (vaginal or C-section)
  • This does not have to be your first child 
  • You need not be married or heterosexual to participate in this group
  • If you have adopted a child or have become a mother through an alternative process (for instance, surrogacy), please contact us
