Connecting Through Motherhood

Weekly educational discussion group for new mums


Connect with other mums and bubs for informal discussions guided by a psychologist. This six-week online series will explore topics that will help support you as you navigate motherhood.

Research tells us that a support network is one of the strongest protective factors for maternal mental health. Discussion will focus on maternal mental health and wellbeing and will provide education and resources on key topics:

  • Matrescence

  • Emotion regulation

  • Personal identity

  • The perfect mother myth

  • Relationships

  • Sleep

Mothers will also be given an opportunity to discuss challenges and highlights each week. 
This group is open to mothers of babies under two years old.

Facilitated by registered psychologist, Christina Bond
