What are they?

Mother and Baby Wellbeing Sessions are open to expecting women and all mums who have a child under 1 year and who would like to learn proven techniques to overcome common symptoms of stress, anxiety and low mood as well as boosting self esteem and improving relationship with others.

In five enjoyable 90 minute session, delivered by two NHS professionals, you will have an opportunity to learn how to make some positive changes and meet other mothers who may share similar feelings to you. You will not be asked to share your personal experiences with others. You will also receive a free workbook to use throughout the sessions.

The sessions will be run in Children’s Centres, therefore you can bring your baby and are welcome to feed, however we don’t provide childcare.
