New Mothers’ Group

Since 2017 we have run the New Mothers Group for English-speaking mothers of newborn babies. Some mothers have travelled from as far as Pori or Turku to attend our popular group!

The group runs every 3 months in February, May, August and November for first time mothers with babies aged 0 – 4 months.

See the webpage for more information.
