Support and advice aimed specifically at younger mothers is proving popular at Women’s Centre Rodney in Warkworth.
Its free Young Mums Group was started a couple of years ago for women aged up to 25. Centre manager Colleen Julian says it is a social group, as well as providing information and education.
“The group explores parenting strategies and skills, while giving women an opportunity to meet other women of a similar age to form friendships and reduce isolation,” she says.
The Young Mums group is held at the women’s centre in Morpeth Street every Thursday during term time, and runs from 10am to 12.30pm.
