Melodies for Mums is a singing programme for mums suffering from stress, anxiety, low mood, low self-esteem or postnatal depression after birth.
Mums learn simple songs that they sing together and sing to their babies at home to help with bonding. The group singing experience is promoted with progression through simples songs to round singing and harmonic work. No experience of singing is required. Sessions are free but women will need to complete a screening questionnaire in advance to ensure they are suitable.
The programme will consist of 10 weekly singing and music-making sessions for groups of up to 14 mums with babies. Participants are advised to attend all sessions as both the mother and the group can benefit even more when there are more people.
For logistical reasons these next 10 sessions will run over a 12 week period on Tuesday afternoons from 4 June 2019 (with an additional informal social session during June), finishing on 20 August 2019 and will be held at the Ellen Brown Children’s Centre in Bermondsey in Southwark.
Melodies for Mums is delighted that the Ellen Brown team are supporting them again. There will be two sessions available for mothers to attend - one from 1:45pm - 2:45pm and the other from 3:00pm - 4:00pm.
