Project Update:
Creative Play - Music and Song


07 May 2024



Over the last few months we’ve been delivering free music sessions for mothers who are experiencing perinatal mental health challenges and symptoms of postnatal depression.


These sessions are delivered by four professional musicians from various cultural and musical backgrounds, and support mothers and their babies to relax and enjoy music and group singing.


The positive impact of the sessions is already evident. One mother described them as: “A breath of fresh air, a pause from the stresses of my day to day life. The group have become friends that I look forward to seeing each week“.



 

Project manager Georgia, says: “We have created a space where mothers can be honest and express their true feelings without judgement. Being a new mother myself, I have experienced the benefits of attending the group and the power that music and singing can have on improving wellbeing“.

Weekly sessions take place on:
  • Tuesdays
    12:00pm-2:00pm
    Robins Children Centre, Heelands

  • Wednesdays
    10:00am-12:00pm
    Little Owls Children Centre, Oxley Park

For how to join the programme please email: georgia@artsforhealthmk.org.uk


The Creative Play programme is kindly funded by Youth Music: Trailblazer Fund.
