Well Women Franklin

Community Health Service

Description

Well Women Franklin is a Peer Support Group. We support women and their families in Franklin and Papakura who are experiencing Antenatal or Postnatal Distress and Anxiety. We focus on wellness and resilience, using a holistic approach. Any woman who feels they need some support is welcome to get in touch with us.

We also assist women who are affected by other mental health disorders that are worsened during pregnancy and motherhood, including anxiety disorders and PTSD.

The core services that we offer are peer support, 24-hour telephone support, childcare (while the women attend group), in-home support & home visiting. We also offer movement workshops, counselling and an individualised goal-setting programme.

Our weekly peer support groups are a safe environment for women to connect with others who may be experiencing similar feelings. Our services help women on their journey to becoming well again and empower them to take back their lives.

 If you feel that you need our support then please contact us by phone 021 1588 134, email or via our Facebook page www.facebook.com/wellwomenfranklin/
