◊ 1 in 10 women suffer with post-natal depression and anxiety but it often goes un-diagnosed ◊
Have you been struggling to cope since the birth of your baby? Have you been feeling, low, irritable, worried or overwhelmed? These can be very common experiences after childbirth. We can support you to overcome these feelings and begin to enjoy your role as a mother
Adjusting to parenthood can be tough.
Our 9 week group programme for both Mothers and their babies is based on a Cognitive Behavioural model exploring the role of thoughts, feelings and behaviours in maintaining difficulties in mood and anxiety.
During the weekly group sessions we will aim to cover the following areas:
- Understanding the need for new mums to dedicate time to nurture themselves as well as their babies and overcoming barriers to doing this.
- Relaxation practices including “Relaxation on the run”- quick ways to relax when you’re short of time.
- Challenging anxious thoughts and negative thoughts and assumptions about yourself and your situation and developing a kinder attitude towards yourself.
- Group discussions and peer support from other mums who are experiencing post-natal depression and anxiety.
