Postpartum Therapeutic Arts and Peer Support Group
mondays from 1-3pm, $5/session (cash only) to cover materials
Being a mom can be really hard.
Do you feel:
- overwhelmed or regularly anxious?
- different from your “normal self”?
- often worried about your baby/children in a way that is hard to shake?
- have you been diagnosed with a Postpartum Mood Disorder (PPMD) or experienced a birth trauma?
If you said yes to any of these questions, this is a group that can support you.
In this drop-in group we explore our experiences of motherhood by learning from each other and from facilitator Catherine Mellinger’s experience as an Expressive Arts Therapist, group arts facilitator and mother; sharing stories and using collage to transform media representations of motherhood into a story of our own real lives and experiences.
No experience in collaging or diagnosis is required in order to attend, and your babies/children are welcome to come along - care is up to mum and group.
