mother & baby groupMother Cuppa
a mother & baby group with conversation, discussion, support and reassurance

This informal group is focused on parents so you can chat, make friends, find a support network and get reassurance on all things baby and early parenting.

I am an experienced postnatal group leader and a specialist in pregnancy, birth and early parenting so
we will discuss:

  • recovery from birth
  • sleep & exhaustion
  • feeding
  • growth spurts
  • what’s normal
  • being a mum
  • low mood & anxiety
  • how tough it can be
  • how bloody brilliant it can be
  • how amazing you are!

I won’t tell you what to do, my aim is to provide good support, information and reassurance so you can ask questions, feel more confident as a parent and better able to get through your tough weeks.

This mother & baby group is about a warm welcome, a cosy and safe space with conversation and endless tea, cake and fresh coffee for parents from across Newcastle and Tyneside. It is a comfortable and friendly group to come to if you are feeling overwhelmed or tired, if you are finding your feet with your new baby and if you would like some good support throughout the first year with your baby.

You can also sit back and relax in the sensory den, which is a cosy space for just you and your baby.








For parents with a baby from new to about one – older siblings are welcome as well
