Mums and Bubs Groups in Canberra

I am currently taking a break from hosting Mothers group

According to the African Proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child” and I could not agree more.  That's why I've created a beautiful 8-week mother’s group. 

New Beginnings Birth's mother’s groups are expertly curated, with me, Lindsay Hollingsworth, as your host.

For some of the 8 weeks, thoughtfully selected guest speakers will be invited into the space.  For other weeks, I will hold the space as we delve into our own journey as women and mothers. 

My vision is to offer an opportunity for mothers to come together each week for 90 minutes. You will be welcomed into Motherhood in my purpose-built space, allowing you to enjoy a brunch of nourishing food and a cuppa.

During my program, I envisage you will ‘find your village’, and experience connectivity and support within this small group environment.

How Does It Work?

The Mother’s groups will be hosted on a Wednesday. Each group has a maximum capacity of 12 mothers and their babies.

Four terms operate per year each consisting of an 8-week duration. 

You can book into more than one term as our guest speakers change regularly.

What's Included?

When you book into the New Beginnings Birth's mother’s group, you'll receive 8 x 90-minute sessions. This will provide you with an opportunity to listen and learn from a range of guest speakers.

Each guest speaker is meticulously chosen to help you become educated and empowered in motherhood and perhaps even have a little fun.  We'll provide you with up-to-date information on the care of yourself and your baby.

Just as important, is the opportunity for you to connect with a group of like-minded mothers who have babies of similar age, so you can find your village.

Each week you'll be treated to a homemade brunch and a selection of tea and coffee.

Mother's Group FAQs

No, you don’t have to be a first-time mum to attend my mother’s groups. I welcome all mothers to attend and find their village.

Yes, we do. We offer gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan options. We will ask you for any specific dietary requirements prior to your mother’s group commencing.

I would recommend booking into our 6-12 month group.

All Mother’s groups are held at our premises at Unit 19, 24 Iron Knob Street, Fyshwick. Once you are booked into one of our 8-week programs you will receive a confirmation email with our address and the finer details.
