Welcome to the Wellington mum circle of trust!
We are run by mums, for mums, about mums. Mothers Network Wellington is a not-for-profit organisation that has been running in Wellington for 35+ years. Join one of our groups to build special bonds with other mums, for long lasting friendships and support. We are NOT a coffee group, although we do provide excellent coffee! We provide a safe, non judgemental space for you and up to 12 other women to share the realities of motherhood. We are unique in that we focus entirely on the NEEDS OF MOTHERS FIRST. We provide babysitters for day-time groups so you can relax completely.
Groups open for enrolment:
Term 3 groups
- Working/ Busy mums
- Western suburbs mums evening group in Karori
Term 4 groups are likely to include:
- Single mums
- General mums group in the Wellington city area
- Māori mums group
We also support mums with information about other support organisations and events that bring mums together.
Mums who attend the groups tell us that they gain confidence and reassurance, feel connected to others. and that it improves their experience of being a mother. Read more feedback in their own words: Testimonials
