Lewisham Mindful Mums Wellbeing Groups

Having a baby isn’t easy at the best of times, especially with the modern-day demands of work, health and relationships, and traditional family support networks not always being an option. Our Mindful Mums groups will help you navigate the path of new parenthood.

"This course has had a huge impact on my mental health - I have felt energised after every session and so supported by the volunteers and other mothers."

Kate, mum to Ruby

What is Mindful Mums?

Mindful Mums offers supportive five-week courses and drop-in sessions for pregnant women and new mums. All of our groups are led by trained volunteers with their own personal experience of managing the challenges of pregnancy and early motherhood. The sessions offer an opportunity to connect with other pregnant women and new mums with similar experiences and learn tips and techniques for looking after your wellbeing.

Who is Mindful Mums for?

Mindful Mums is for pregnant women and mums with babies up to 12 months old who live in the London boroughs of Bromley, Lewisham or Greenwich.

"A great group of women to support each other and listen respectfully; such a nice contrast to the competitive nature of many new mums groups."

Mindful Mums on Zoom

“Some weeks I count down the days until the next online session, such is the impact on my mental health.” Susie.

Susie and Hanna are just two of the mums who have benefitted from attending Mindful Mums’ wellbeing sessions on Zoom.

Here’s what they have to say.

“I was a bit apprehensive of meeting new people at first, especially online; however, the facilitators make it really friendly and put us all completely at ease with their openness and kindness.”
