Café Mama - Launch
20 Jul 2019 10:30am - 12pm
We are so excited to host our first Café Mama - a place to share words of wisdom, worries and woes of motherhood.
"Being a parent can be one of the sources of our greatest joys. It is also - intermittently - the cause of some of our deepest sorrows. It is likely that we will spend at least some of the time in despair and confusion, wondering whether it really has to be so hard."
Join us in conversation at Café Mama as we try to offer each other a gentle way of staying calm around one of the most arduos yet deeply fulfilling, jobs in the world.
Our experience is our resource and together we can provide each other with insight, recognition and a forgiving generous reflection of our challenges.
