Welcome to Happy Mums

Embracing maternal mental health in north, west and east Cumbria

How are you mum?

The experience of being pregnant, giving birth and being a mum (whether its first or tenth time) can be overwhelming for anyone, but when you're at risk of or experiencing mental health problems at the same time it can also be lonely, confusing and scary.  

At Happy Mums we focus on offering peer support to mums with mental health problems from pregnancy and throughout their life as a mother. We all need a safe and supportive place to share our thoughts and feelings. So each week in our support groups we ask: how are YOU? 

Happy Mums is a special place; all staff and volunteers have lived-experience of maternal mental health problems - either having lived it themselves or through supporting a family member or friend. 

And if you think you could benefit from joining us at our weekly support groups please get in touch. You don't need a formal diagnosis of a mental health condition, and you don't need to be referred by a health professional. 

We know how daunting it can be making that first contact - but we promise it will be worth it. Have a look around the website, get to know us and when you're ready we'll be waiting to hear from you.
