About the event

Sharing Mamas is a community support group in English for mothers at any stage of their mothering journey.

Around 1 in 5 women will experience mental health difficulties during pregnancy or a year after childbirth. The risks are greater for those living away from familiar support or have recently experienced a major life event, such as relocation.

Sharing Mamas focuses on supporting the mother, offering a non-judgemental space to share your feelings and challenges with others who have been through or are currently going through similar experiences. The group aims to improve the mood, self-confidence and overall wellbeing of each woman as she navigates the ever-changing highs and lows of becoming and being a mother.

We will start each session with a gentle grounding and relaxation, followed by a check in and sharing. Occasionally we will engage in mindful activities such as art, writing, movement or group singing to support your process. Creative practices help us to record and reflect on our experiences and can often be more effective than talking, especially when we are struggling emotionally, as they bypass the overstimulated thinking brain and directly access our unconscious feelings.

Facilitated by Kate Kalvinos, a UK registered creative arts psychotherapist, supporting women and mothers in their mental health and wellbeing. As a first-time mother away from home, Kate faced feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and loneliness. She found the thought of attending baby groups and play dates daunting and longed for an intentional space to process this new life-changing transition that is becoming a mother. Kate’s groups are offered with community and connection at the heart, whilst still acknowledging and honouring each woman's individual story and journey.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

Pregnant women and mothers with children of any age are welcome to join Sharing Mamas. We ask that you only bring babes-in-arms/pre-crawlers to this group so you can use this time to focus on yourself.
