Mama Village Mothers' Groups
Are you looking for a mothers' group?
Mums constantly tell me that they feel lonely and isolated. Do you feel this way too?
My name is Karen O'Mara. I'm a qualified clinical social worker and group facilitator and lead discussions in the mothers groups that bring a sense of relief that you are not alone in your feelings, thoughts and experiences.
You will receive support in a non-judgmental way, while learning to be a responsive and gentle parent through the evidence-based parenting information provided each week. I will guide you with attachment parenting information, while looking holistically at families, the struggles of motherhood, as well as the strengths you all possess as mothers.
When you attend the Mama Village you will feel heard and supported, build lasting friendships and develop tools and strategies to assist you in becoming the best parent you can be.
What groups are available?
Mama Village includes baby groups and a toddler group.
Each session will include a parenting theme, as well as the opportunity for a social chat. Parenting themes will change each term.
90 minute group session including:
- evidence-based parenting themes
- connection with other mums for ongoing support
You will also be invited to join a private online support group for mums in the Mama Village where you will receive additional information and support!

How to Join the Mama Village
The mothers groups fill quickly, so if you would like to secure your spot, please make your booking for the whole term if the term has not yet started.
If the term has started, you are still able to join at any time if there is enough space in the group by completing the request to join form.
You will be contacted within the next business day to arrange part payment of the full investment fees. When you join after a term has already started, you are only required to pay for the remainder of the term.
