Maternal Journal is for expectant mothers/parents and mothers/parents with babies and toddlers
First to be introduced in Mid-West Wales!
When you are pregnant or have a baby, everything becomes about the baby. The Maternal Journal group is an exclusive and sacred space to bring back focus onto YOURSELF through fun and creative journaling.
I found Maternal Journal!
What is Maternal Journal?
Maternal Journal is about creating something for you. You don't have to be an "artist" to join! We are naturally all creative.
We share creative tools and techniques to support the huge changes, joys and challenges we go through in pregnancy, birth and parenthood.
No prior experience is needed, and all are welcome. Materials and refreshments are provided.
Each step-by-step activity shows you how to make something for your journal. Choose from styles including poetry and prose writing to drawing and painting – all designed to fit in with the busy life of a parent.
We provide an inclusive and safe space for anyone who has experienced pregnancy, given birth, identifies as a mother or as a woman or non-binary carer.
The project can generate strong feelings, and therefore is not recommended for people with a history of, or current, serious mental health issues.
Journaling is well-known for its positive benefits on mental health and wellbeing.
Parenthood is the greatest. It's also amazingly challenging in all kinds of unexpected ways for different types of people.
We're expected to casually stroll into motherhood and parenthood while trying to get our heads around a million new ways to do things and keep our new emotions in check.
Holding it all together, preferably with a smile, can be kind of exhausting.
It really doesn't matter if you haven't journaled before – we are all creative, and you will find a style that works for you.

I found it positive to do something for myself. It felt nice to think about what makes me happy.
This group is FULLY FUNDED and FREE.
