Mother-Baby Nurture Group
Supporting mothers and their babies (0-6 months) through the first few months of parenthood.
Becoming a mother can be a time of great joy and also a time of mixed emotions. Mother-Baby Nurture is a 10-week group designed to support you and your infant through the early days of parenting as you get to know and respond to each other. It’s a safe, supportive and confidential space for you to share your experiences. Mother-Baby Nurture offers a gentle pace where you can simply ‘be’ with your new baby: to listen to your infant, to your own self, and to the lived experiences of other mothers.
Together as we reflect on our close relationships, and observe and respond to our baby’s needs – we start making ‘sense’ of it all – and find solid ground
Mother-Baby Nurture is a safe place to come if you are struggling with the transition of becoming a parent, finding it hard to connect with your baby, or feeling a little isolated, anxious or low.
Mother-Baby Nurture support groups operate during the school term at the following locations:
- North Perth
- Gosnells (starting Term 4, 2018)
Each group is facilitated by a Senior Facilitator (experienced in mother-infant relationship-based work) and a Peer Facilitator who shares her lived experience (and struggle) as a mother.
What mothers are saying about Mother-Baby Nurture:
“This group has helped me with my view of parenting in many ways. I’m not sure how to put it in words, but I now feel more confident being a Mum.”
“Being able to share thoughts and experiences without fear of judgement”
“Meeting other mothers, knowing I was not alone”
“I feel more in tune with my baby and have developed confidence to trust my instincts
“It’s not joyful and rewarding all the time… I was able to speak openly about my experience”
“I gained valuable insight and tips through listening to other members and facilitators stories that I now apply in my parenting”
“Teaching me to slow down, enjoy the small moments, giving me tools to teach my children how to experience their emotions”
