Mindful Mums

Lewisham Mindful Mums wellbeing group

“I really enjoyed this course. The material and course leaders were brilliant. Courses like this are so important for mums. It is good to know you are not alone and that there is support in the community.”

We supported 161 mums in our first year!

Lewisham Mindful Mums helps pregnant women and new mums in the London Borough of Lewisham to look after themselves during what can be a challenging period of their lives.

Lewisham Mindful Mums groups are free for women to learn how to stay emotionally well, develop confidence and social connections during pregnancy and in the first year of birth.

Groups are led by trained volunteers with their own personal experience of looking after themselves during pregnancy and the first year of birth.

Online Sessions

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, all of our Lewisham Mindful Mums groups are being offered online via Zoom for the time being.

“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.”

Hanna and Susie have been attending Mindful Mums online sessions – here’s what they have to say.
