Milestone Mums is a support group for mothers with mental health problems, providing support via phone, online and in person. The support is specifically for pregnant mums and mums with children under two but the group can offer support for mothers with children of all ages. Issues for those attend the group include pre and postnatal depression, anxiety and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) from birth trauma
Funding will allow Milestone Mums to provide a weekly group for mums to attend with their children, with activities available for the children such as sensory play, crafts, welly walks and other activities relating to Early Years. They will also provide workshops for mums around wellbeing, including crafts, meditation sessions, nature walks, cooking on a budget and self-care packages. This will be a safe space for mums to come and talk about their challenges and to receive peer support from others.
