Growing Your Community - building your village

  • Killara Australia (map)

About this event:

Building meaningful relationships with people around you, close by and available can add a  great deal of richness to your time in pregnancy and with a new baby. But it can be difficult to figure out where to go and find these elusive people. Be a part of community and workshop ways to improve the support around you  (and how you can support others in a reasonable way). 

We will also look into different local services and people around you that might be able to add benefit to your time as a new mum.

Come along if you are wondering

  • How do I find people who are in my area that I can connect with and are going through something similar

  • What do I want out of a community?

  • Have I planned ahead for ways to strengthen my relationship/s?

  • I have well-intended people around me but I'm worried they won't really be able to help me the way I need.

  • What will I even need when I have a baby/ with my baby

  • Bring your own questions too!

Who is it for?

This event is for women with an interest in pregnancy and birth and newborns. This is focused on the needs of expecting women and new mums. Female support people, friends and doulas are welcome to attend.

Why come?

  • Meet some likeminded women in your local area, going through similar experiences.

  • Hear some tips and share some ideas about how to build a real village around you.

  • When you have a baby, having people around you that you can talk with, support and share the load with can really help

  • It can be tricky to build really meaningful reciprocal friendships during this time. often new mums are away from their normal work and isolated with a baby. building a village can really help that.

  • mums groups are fantastic. but they don't beat having a village of women around that really help each other

This Circles of Women event brings together pregnant mums with childbirth educators in addition to health professionals and therapists. Each of these events has a topic to start the conversation. Where the conversation ends is anyone’s guess.
