Lewisham Mindful Mums help pregnant women and new mums in the London Borough of Lewisham to look after themselves during what can be a challenging period of their lives.
Lewisham Mindful Mums groups are free for women to learn how to stay emotionally well, develop confidence and social connections during pregnancy and in the first year of birth. Groups are led by trained volunteers with their own personal experience of looking after themselves during pregnancy and the first year of birth.
Groups take place at Children and Family Centres across the borough – check the timetables for details of current groups.
Crèche facilities are available for babies and children from 3 months to 5 years old. Crèche places need to be booked before the group date. Young babies can be brought into sessions with support from a Support Worker available.
