Mothers Matter

A not-for-profit organisation offering Pre- and Post-natal support for women and their families. 1-2-1 support and wellbeing support for women during their pregnancies and after their babies are born. 

Mothers Matter

We are a perinatal Mental Health project providing free counselling (face-to-face or via zoom), community home support, wellbeing workshops, peer groups, drop-in service, empowerment groups, mental health awareness classes and family events.

We have opened a wellbeing hub where women can come along to a safe environment where they can make friends and exchange stories. Within the hub, we offer an on-site counsellor to provide valuable listening opportunities. We also invite guest speakers and host mental health awareness sessions, and offer all Mums the opportunity to have counselling or self-refer for our home support.

Our services are for perinatal women and their families. We offer support to pregnant mums, neonatal mums and mums of children aged 0-5 years old. We offer support to both Mum and Dad from the very early stages with the aim of preventing Mental Health escalation. We believe that visiting Mum at an earlier stage stops isolation and postpartum depression as they have support and one-to-one contact from the very beginning.

You matter, we matter, Mothers matter.
Let us hold your hand through the fog.
