What we support
Our mission is to work alongside vulnerable women and their families to ensure we meet their health and social needs, to encourage and empower good mental health.
Isolation, loss, birth trauma, loneliness, low self-esteem, tiredness, and fear are just a few of the obstacles we can support you to overcome. We can now offer up to 6 sessions of FREE one 2 one 45-minute counselling sessions for perinatal mental health.
Our aim and passion is to stop women and families getting to crisis point.
Wouldn’t it be great to have a support worker, a counsellor or pregnancy buddy, to sit with you and assure you that these feelings are completely natural?
