Thrive is an established group for mothers with babies up to 4 months of age. It is a 9 week reflective discussion and mindfulness practice group, a confidential and open sharing space.

This course is about YOU and for you. Together we will cultivate resilience, learn communication, consent skills and mindfulness tools that will make a positive difference to your daily life.

Benefits of mindfulness in the early months of parenting are:

  • significantly increases one’s ability to cope with stress, regulate emotions, and attune to others (Shapiro and Carlson 2009)

  • increased resilience, self-esteem, compassion, and overall well-being (Astin 1997; Feldman et al. 2007; Kabat-Zinn et al. 1985; Shapiro et al. 1998, 2005, 2007).
