MumsAid has developed a new initiative to support young mums in Greenwich to cope with the challenges of motherhood and give their babies the best possible start in life. YoungMumsAid launched in August 2015, using a grant from BBC Children in Need.
YoungMumsAid offers free weekly psychotherapy sessions in Woolwich Children’s Centres, along with a crèche, to pregnant and new mothers aged 16 – 19. We aim to work alongside young mothers, supporting their emotional wellbeing and promoting infant mental health.
Referrals are welcomed from young mums and professionals such as GPs, midwives and health visitors.
