Mothers for Mothers

At Mothers for Mothers we offer services to support your emotional wellbeing during pregnancy, and early years parenting.  It can be a great comfort to have someone available to talk to, who understands what you are going through. If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, loneliness, fear or isolation during or after pregnancy, or if you are a partner, family member or friend we look forward to hearing from you.

Our SEND Peer Support service is aimed at women and birthing people who have children with additional needs (diagnosed or not) or themselves are Neurodivergent. Our SEND Peer Support worker can offer you a listening ear, practical advice or emotional support because she’s been on a similar journey and has navigated the SEND system personally and professionally.

By chatting to a parent who ‘gets it’ can decrease your ‘mental load’ by allowing you a safe space to express those feelings associated with being a parent of a SEND child.

By knowing you’re not on your own and there’s support which allows you to belong and be included because there are people who think and feel like you do, can increase your resilience when trying to access and fight for support.

Through accessing SEND Peer support, your confidence and skills in parenting a child with additional needs can grow and develop and you can progress to accessing other SEND services such as local Autism support groups or other SEND friendly activities.
