Giving women the chance to talk openly and honestly, without fear of judgement, and to celebrate and mark this point in their lives. Mothers often feel sidelined and have difficulty expressing feelings in a way that can also be creative.
Participants explore their experiences through art, writing, singing or mindfulness. This helps build self-esteem and validate a woman’s perspective. It also brings the often hidden nature of motherhood into the open.
Participants say attending has helped their health and well-being by reducing feelings of loneliness, anxiety and depression, making them feel like they can better cope with the demands of motherhood.
