Thanks to the Mab Gwalia fund, Mothers Matter are able to bring back our free baby groups. A lot of Mums we meet at these groups experience loneliness, isolation, sadness and depression. Without the service, we believe a lot of mums within our communities would really struggle. Our meetings are about bringing together mums in small communities to share their situation in a safe and welcoming space.
Currently there is an 18 month waiting list in perinatal mental health services. At Mothers Matter, there is no waiting list – so people can come through our door and greeted straight away, and begin accessing the support they need.
Mab Gwalia believes that opportunity should not only be available to those who can afford it. The ambition is to build a movement that makes change. To find out more, please visit the website: mabgwalia.wales
