Mothers Talking

With Naomi Stadlen

Thursdays, 10.00-11:30am until 21st December 2017.

PLEASE NOTE: From Wednesday 3rd January 2018 the group will meet every Wednesday 10.00-11.30

Babies of any age welcome.

Mothers Talking is a relaxed and friendly space for meeting other mums. It’s not like a casual chat among friends, though, it has a structure that encourages discussion, and is highly supportive, led by counsellor Naomi Stadlen. Few jobs other than motherhood leave women feeling so alone, so unsupported, and with so much responsibility. Mothers face all kinds of decisions, and many feel unprepared for this, or situations can be entirely unexpected. Relationships with family, friends and colleagues may also change when a first or subsequent child comes along.

It is heartwarming to discover, by talking, how much we all share as mothers. Talking affirms the importance of what we are doing as mothers and this group offers a wonderful space to share, to feel supported, and to realise that you are doing really well! Babies enjoy these meetings too. There is no age limit for them and both breast and bottle fed babies are welcome.
