12 days: "A chance to make friends, have fun, gain confidence." Sarah*, 17

< Back to listing

Sarah is part of our Young Parent’s Programme and has been coming along to groups at Romsey Mill since she was 20 weeks pregnant. She has found both the ante-natal and post-natal groups really helpful and describes her support worker, Judith, as “very supportive and practical both before and after the birth of my baby”.

For Sarah, coming to Romsey Mill has “given me the opportunity to mix with other mums and babies. It has helped both me and my baby to develop socially. I am not on facebook and so do not keep in touch with people in that way but have met up with a friend here at Romsey Mill that I used to know.”

She has been taking part in our ‘Shine’ course that we are running to help young mums focus on their own worth and self-esteem. Sarah says, “It is really good; every week is different and it helps with my confidence. I have enjoyed meeting friends and having fun, as well as realising that we are all important.”
