Sign up now for our New Mothers’ Group in November 2018 for mothers with babies born August, September and October 2018
Being a new mother is exciting, but it can also be daunting and lonely especially if Finland is your home away from home.
The New Mothers’ Group is a four week group program for new mothers in English with babies from about two weeks to three months of age.
It’s your chance to talk to other mothers about the highs and the lows in a relaxed and welcoming setting. You will also learn more about your recovery from the birth, feeding, sleeping, post natal mental health and other topics from a variety of professionals. Most importantly, you’ll meet other mothers going through what you’re experiencing, and start friendships that could last a lifetime.
