The Birth of a Mother
After all the preparation and hard work, the child is born, and with it,
But who supports the mother in her new crucial role?
She may have family, friends but they may have their own busy lives. She may live in London far from any relatives, her partner probably works long hours to allow them to live in the capital city: she may work long hours too, inside or outside, of the home. She may rely on books and the internet to guide her. They say it takes a village to raise a child, it also takes a village to raise a Mother.
A monthly support group for mothers at any stage of mothering; whether you are pregnant, have a baby, a toddler, a school-age child, a home-schooled child, a teenager, multiples or a combination of all. We are all in this together.
Mindful Mothering evolved after many chats with mum friends in the playground, in the bar, at some bouncing baby class or other, when I realised that we, as mothers need all the support we can get!
“With the hypnobirthing I felt like I was in a bubble. I felt really special when I was pregnant and for a couple of months after the birth because I was listening to the hypnobirthing track everyday. It kept me in that bubble..then motherhood set in and I realised it was a job for life. I became really tired”
Lorna, Hypnobirthing mum of Pablo Jack born in 2015
A deep relaxation session for mothers to help them find calm amongst the chaos, learn mindfulness and self-hypnosis techniques to be more present and calm in any situation, an open space to chat and seek advice or empathy and more than likely there will be cake because mothers need cake.
