Mothers Talking is an ongoing postnatal support group for those mothers who have attended my courses and focuses on the first 20 weeks approximately.
“Talking may sound like a luxury for a new mother. But it isn’t. Few jobs, other than motherhood, leave us so alone, so unsupported, but with so much responsibility. When we become mothers, we enter a new world. There is plenty to talk about and plenty to share. Most of all, we discover the power of understanding one another. This helps us to return home feeling stronger and more confident as mothers.” (Naomi Stadlen).
This is a rolling, evolving group and we are all finding our way!
MOTHERS TALKING GROUP
This group also offers great support for breastfeeding mums. Please contact Anita if you have any questions or concerns.
I attended Anita’s pregnancy yoga classes from 26 weeks pregnant and found them invaluable. Just having a couple hours a week to breath and be with my bump and relax and stop and think about the impending birth and beyond proved so useful both at the time (it’s so hard to find any time to stop and breath in every day life) and afterwards (the techniques learnt and Anita’s NBB community). My birth was challenging as I had extreme and rare complications (maternal sepsis), but I remained calm throughout and I’m sure the yoga mindset and the breathing helped that. It’s amazing what strength a birthing mother has and this is something the classes teach and reiterate throughout. Afterwards, the yoga classes and Anitas NBB community introduced me to so many like minded mothers in Guernsey. I have made more friends since these classes than I did in the entire year beforehand (since returning from over a decade in London). What Anita has created is so much more than Facebook pages (so useful for questions and staying in touch), yoga classes or birth preparation couples courses; it’s a network that provides support and friendship (in what can be a quite isolating experience) and lots and lots of laughter and cake.
