Launching at 12.30 on Monday 22 November is a NEW service for mothers and their early years children. It’s a FREE service for the Manchester community.
Run by Annabel Newfield, the group will offer a supportive, nurturing, and empowering community for women.
Who is the group for?
This group is for mothers who live in Manchester and their early years children (4 years and under).
Raising children and coming into motherhood during lockdowns has been isolating for many. Mothers learn so much from each other – find a community of other mothers here.
Especially in these times, with repeated lockdowns. Lockdown mamas, more than ever, need to feel connected with other mums.
What help can I expect?
More about Annabel
Annabel is an experienced teacher of developmental movement play and somatic bodywork.
She works with a large variety of women’s groups. She has supported women in prison, runs local support groups, teaches on retreats, and has a one-to-one therapy practice. Her focus is to help women achieve positive body image, mindfulness, and self-care.
Annabel is all too aware of the challenges facing mothers, especially those with fragmented communities and families. As a single mother, she’s been through her own burnout journey. In her words, she ‘scraped herself off the floor and learnt how to ask for support and resource herself as a woman and mother’. This fuels her passion to support mothers – especially now when many mums are navigating the isolation of parenting through lockdowns.
How do I join the group?
Be Well Manchester will refer mums to this self-help group.
