Mums Matter in the news
Our Mums Matter service has recently featured in an article on the My Welshpool website.
Peer Support Volunteer, Georgina Taylor shared her experiences of attending the Mums Matter course in Welshpool.
“I was feeling very low and angry and I was trying to block out that one of my children had additional needs,” she said.
“Trying to juggle it all, and contend with the diagnosis at the same time, I just felt as though I wasn’t being the mum I should have been to my children.
“It was difficult relating to other mums too, as most didn’t seem to connect with what I was going through in terms of having an autistic child. I felt really quite isolated and struggled to make friends.”
Georgina found the Mums Matter course helped her to understand how important self care is and after the course she set up a Peer Support group for mums of children with additional needs in Welshpool.
“Being a volunteer has given me something else to focus on, and it helps me manage my mental health. Seeing like-minded people on a regular basis is so important to me.”
