Lewisham Children & Family Centre

June and July Mindful Mums, Diversity Matters and Being Dads Courses and drop-ins

Lewisham Mindful Mums helps pregnant women and new mums in Lewisham look after themselves during what can be a challenging period of their lives. Since the service started in 2016, Mindful Mums has supported over a thousand women.

 

Mindful Mums online Sessions

Having a baby isn’t easy at the best of times, especially with the modern-day demands of work, health and relationships, and traditional family support networks not always being an option. Our Mindful Mums groups will help you navigate the path of new parenthood.

“Some weeks I count down the days until the next online session, such is the impact on my mental health.” Susie

“Just to link-in with other mums, have a moan and a laugh has genuinely got me through lockdown – it’s a lifeline.” Hanna

“This course has had a huge impact on my mental health – I have felt energised after every session and so supported by the volunteers and other mothers.” Kate, mum to Ruby

Diversity Matters Wellbeing Groups

Having a new baby is rarely without its challenges, but having a baby when you’re from a Black, Asian or Ethnic Minority background can be more challenging still.
