About us

We are a group of mothers most of whom have suffered depression or distress after the birth of one or more of our babies. We offer support, advice, information and most of all a listening ear for any worries or concerns you may have.

Mothers for Mothers

We are a voluntary group and operate quite separately from health or social services. Anything you say to us is treated confidentially within Mothers for Mothers and we would only reveal any information after discussing it with you and only if we felt somebody was in danger.

Our group was set up by mothers who had suffered from postnatal depression and had felt alone, isolated and believed they were the only ones not coping, and that they were failing as mothers. Our aim is to give mothers someone to talk to who will understand how you are feeling. Having suffered themselves our volunteers can offer you the reassurance that you will recover, sympathise with how you are feeling and suggest ways of coping to help get you through these difficult times.

Remember you are not alone and you will get better.
