Here’s What Some of the Mums are Saying About Our Course:
“The Mother’s Helpers PND course is amazing and invaluable for anyone experiencing post natal distress. It provides practical and insightful content to help you discover more about yourself and get you on the road to recovery. The caring and empathetic support I received from the course leader and other participants was amazing!” ~ Bridget
“I found the PND Course to be very helpful. All of the information about preventing and managing PND was in one resource. Going through a topic each week helped me take small steps. Talking and listening to women who also suffer from PND helped me realise I wasn’t alone.”~ Barbara
“A couple of weeks ago now I finished one of the PND courses at St Heliers. I just wanted to say how amazing it was! I really enjoyed the group counselling sessions, which I wasn’t so sure about at first. But it was just great knowing other mums that had gone through the same things I had. And the support was just invaluable, both from the other mums there and our counsellor. The sessions were also amazing, I learnt so much from them all and they have really helped me. I cannot highly recommend this course enough. It’s just been wonderful. I’m so happy I found Mother’s Helpers.” ~ Megan
