Postnatal Support Group
Postpartum Rallying - therapy group for postnatal mothers
This group is a place for postnatal mothers to talk about the journey to motherhood as well as the isolation and disconnection from one's prior self that many mothers experience.
It is a safe place to connect to other new moms while learning to reconnect to aspects of one’s identity that feel lost, as well as to build and grow. It is a place to be comfortable with the reality of motherhood. The focus of our support group is encouraging real and sustainable self-care practices to support the complexity of women’s life. We offer a warm and inviting space to share stories and the group moderator provides immediate emotional support to navigate real motherhood experiences.
During our sessions, you’ll have the chance to talk, listen, discover coping techniques, and develop a mindfulness practice – all with the support of other mums just like you. It’s free to join – just contact us to register.There is no need for a referral from your GP or midwfe. We accept self-referrals. Just write us at firstname.lastname@example.org or register on our contact page.
Our program is based on the Maori well-being model Te Whare Tapa Whā focused on four dimensions of human life. The topics we discuss are motherhood identity; motherhood emotions like shame, anger, loneliness, anxiety; well-being; self-care system; mindfulness; narrative practices, etc.
Our weekly therapy group for new mothers meet every Tuesday from 1pm to 3 pm. Once you are enrolled, we will send an information pack. The course runs for 8 weeks. We keep the group small (8-10 people).
