Using arts as a tool, we create a peer supported environment that allows for information sharing, learning and reflection. Providing an informal peer led maternal support and development process that increases the participant’s confidence, skills and ability to cope with and embrace parenthood. The arts practice provides a mechanism for parents to develop a strong, positive bond with the un-born or new born babies.

Activities include group workshops, one to one workshops, cultural visits and sharing events. Workshops can include a range of arts practices including creative writing – autobiographical poetry and stories; visual arts – making a cast of your new born baby’s foot or your pregnant belly; performance – creating a play about your experience; music – creating a song that expresses your feelings about parenting etc. Workshops will include parent only sessions as well as parent and baby/child sessions. The makeup, focus and content of the activities are led by the participants.
