Mama Village mothers' groups for toddlers COMING SOON!
Making Mama holds the safety and wellbeing of your children in high regard. Making Mama is taking time to locate an experienced and capable child minder/educator for this playgroup. Once this is established, the group will start for the weeks remaining in the term.
Looking for a mothers' group for you AND a playgroup for your toddler?
Motherhood can be a lonely journey. Just when we think we have babies figured out, they become toddlers. And that's a whole new ball game. Enter loneliness and isolation again, and the constant worry about whether you are getting it right. If you have happened to have another baby as well, it adds another exhausting element on top.
Does this sound about right?
In the one setting, you can attend a Mama Village mothers' group for mums of toddlers aged 2-5 years while your child attends a play led experience. If you have a baby under the age of 24 months, you are welcome for them to attend with you in the mothers group at no extra charge. Sound good?
My name is Karen O'Mara. I'm a mother of two, a qualified and experienced social worker with more than 25 years working with families of babies and toddlers and young primary school aged children.
At the Mama Village you will receive support in a non-judgmental way, while learning to be a responsive and gentle parent through the evidenced based parenting information provided each week. I will guide you with attachment parenting information, while looking holistically at families, the struggles of motherhood, as well as the strengths you all possess as mothers.
My passion is supporting mums in their adjustment to motherhood to help reduce the rates of postnatal depression and anxiety. I also love helping mums build their village of support so they don’t have to do mothering alone.
When you attend the Mama Village you will feel heard and supported, build lasting friendships and develop tools and strategies to assist you in becoming the best parent you can be.
Each session will include a parenting theme, as well as the opportunity for a social chat. Parenting themes will change each term.
90 minute group session including:
- evidenced-based parenting themes
- connection with other mums for ongoing support
- guest speakers on specialist topics
- coffee/tea and homemade morning tea
Plus bonus private online support group for mums in the Mama Village to receive additional information and support each week!
Term 3 program: 12th July - 14th September 2021

How much does it cost?
