Parent 2 Parent Support / PND Coffee Mornings

If you are feeling a bit blue, have a low mood or are just not as happy as you want to be, join us for a coffee morning where you can talk freely about the stressful times of parenting, changed roles, and everything in between.  Babies welcome.

Our parent 2 parent support and PND coffee mornings meet monthly. You can view our current events sheet to get further details on dates and times.

Parent 2 parent supporters are mothers that have been trained with communication, facilitation and counselling skills; (but are not actual counsellors); they can provide a listening ear and support for anyone who would like to talk in confidence about the ups and downs of parenting. Email cuidiudseparenthood@gmail.com for more details or text Iva: 083 4576737 or Lorna 0857234429 to talk in confidence. Email cuidiudseparenthood@gmail.com for more details or text 0851448158.
