For mums-to-be, new mums, dads and babies (up to one year): a weekly opportunity to make new friends and have a good natter. Drop in when you can for a chat and a coffee.
Jenny and I encourage a supportive environment by providing a listening ear or by encouraging the mums to chat amongst themselves about the ups and downs of coping with a new baby. We are very clear that in this role we are volunteers and will always direct families to local health resources for specific health advice. Since the group was formed in 2004, the two hot topics have remained the same: sleepless nights and the challenges of introducing solid food! Every week tea, coffee and lots of chocolate biscuits are served. We try to ensure that everyone feels equal and the group feels welcoming to all newcomers.
