Thrive Northside is aimed at mothers in Melbournes North. We will secure a venue if we are able to meet in person in the Preston/Thornbury area.
Thrive is a mothers group with a difference. This group is all about, and for you, and your experience of transitioning into being a mum. Whether this is your first child, or you are adding to your family with more children, we welcome you.
We welcome you to attend with your babies up to 5 months of age. It is a 9 week reflective discussion and mindfulness practice group, a confidential and open sharing space.
Due to current lockdown restrictions we will begin this group online with a view to securing a venue so we can meet in person. That will depend on venue availability at the time.
Together we will cultivate resilience, learn communication, consent skills and mindfulness tools that will make a positive difference to your daily life.
Mindfulness practice has been proven to:
increases one’s ability to cope with stress, regulate emotions, and attune to others (Shapiro and Carlson 2009)
increases 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)
CONNECT with others and co-create this intimate container with us. Give yourself the support you deserve as a new mum as we integrate and make meaning out of the very personal and yet universal experience of becoming a mother.
