'Budding Parents' is our new FREE service for local mums and dads-to-be. Its just a couple of hours to meet other expectant parents, create some simple crafts for baby and generally talk all things pregnancy over a cup of tea! This was our first session, and it was fantastic to be able to introduce the work of Happy Mums and raise awareness of maternal mental health problems while making connections with others.
Reducing isolation is a big factor in preventing the escalation of maternal mental health problems and we hope that Budding Parents will continue to grow and provide a crucial service for our community.
We were proud to receive a glowing review for one of the dads who came to the session. He said: "We both feel like a weight has been lifted knowing people out there care and support us. Thanks guys."
