Post-Natal Virtual Support
Informal NHS Parents Peer Support Forum
These sessions are aimed at staff who are parents, carers, or grandparents. Whether you are brand new to parenthood or experienced, all are welcome. They will be an opportunity to meet other parents, share experiences and spend some time socialising with people who will be experiencing similar ups and downs and challenges. You will meet other parents in a virtual environment and be able to offer peer support, a listening ear or even just vent about some of the things that you might be struggling with. You can also share your successes and milestones and build a small support network. As everyone will have experience navigating life with children, these will be non-judgmental groups where babies, children, teenagers are welcome, and no one will mind if you have not had chance to brush your hair or sat in your dressing gown.
Next session – 17th February 2022 11:00-12:00
