    Being a mom can be really hard.

    Do you feel:

    • overwhelmed or regularly anxious?
    • sad?
    • 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.
