Mothers First supports mothers who are struggling or just need a hand during the perinatal period, in the South Devon area. We run a specialised program for any mother suffering from postnatal depression. Our support workers guide mothers, help them navigate services, and can be a listening ear throughout their journey.
We currently run a peer support group at the Windmill Center, Torquay on a monthly basis. We would like to increase our access but need funding to reach our goal. All our work is voluntary and our volunteers have a strong passion to help others. All our current cost are covered by our volunteers hence the request for funding. Our cost are venue hire, refreshments, fuel, advertising and resources.
We provide a much needed service for mothers and their families. As mentioned Mothers First run a free peer support group for mothers to share and meet other mothers who have similar experiences. The group discusses issues of depression and anxiety relating to childbirth and motherhood in a safe non judgemental environment. We also do home visits.
