“Opened up like an earthquake - intimate, fragile, raw." Help us give all new families access to EveryMum, creative support workshops.

by anyoneeveryonetheatre in London, England, United Kingdom

Welcome to EveryMum where we believe that every new family deserves access to support throughout pregnancy, birth and bonding with their babies. Making lasting friendships with supportive local families helps reduce isolation, fostering a sense of belonging, support and understanding. With 85% of mothers reporting baby blues and 15% developing postnatal depression this is an essential local resource.

The Chrysalis Project invites participants to engage with expertly crafted artistic workshops, exploring the emotional, psychological, social and physical transitions they are experiencing. Working alongside local graphic designer Daniel Norris participants will create original artwork to be exhibited in local community hotspots inviting interaction and awareness within the wider community.

The Chrysalis project needs a spring board - it needs you!

It is essential to our inclusive ethos that we are accessible to all regardless of finiancial status. Our pay-what-you-can scheme allows all new families access to the support they deserve BUT THIS IS NOT SUSTAINABLE WITHOUT FUNDING!!

"I found NCT so valuable but for many it's not affordable"

"There is nothing like this around and I found so little emotional support both pre and post pregnancy in what was one of the most amazing but difficult times of my life"

"I have antenatal depression so having an activity like NCT was the only way I was going to get out of the house and meet people"

Want to know more..?

Inherently therapeutic and creative, the sessions will generate original artwork that will be exhibited in local community hotspots such as childrens centres, antenatal waiting rooms, cafes and the library. This will be an ongoing and changing presentation of the groups’ processes, providing stimulus to others and inviting interaction and development within the wider community. We aim to stimulate discussion around the stigma of parental mental health, drawing awareness through creative collaboration between pregnant women, new parents, their support networks and local artists. All accumulated artwork will be exhibited together at a final exhibition in celebration of the project. Pledge £50 or more and you will be invited!!

Distilling the transformative journey of parenthood through a theatrical fusion of creative text-work and visual artwork. Daniel Norris is our Artist Collaborator and his work can be seen below and on tumblr.
