It Takes A Village, Crystal Palace

Free mum & baby 'picnic' group focused on wellbeing & breastfeeding peer support

What It Takes A Village, Crystal Palace says

Founded by local parent and Association of Breastfeeding Mothers trained Peer Supporter, Emily Harper, ITAV's pilot project is a Crystal Palace Park wellbeing meet up group for chest/breastfeeding mums and their babies, provided free of charge thanks to seed funding from MIND.

Our weekly “village” meet ups will be running every Tuesday for 6 weeks from the 11th May - 15th June 2021. 1hr sessions will be begin at 10.15am in the fenced off picnic area opposite Brown and Green Life cafe in the park, adjacent to the children’s playground. Breast/chest feeding mums welcome and pre-walking babies only (due to maintaining social distancing restrictions, sorry).

Bring your own blanket, drinks, snacks, and anything that might make feeding more comfortable for you. We will begin each session with some relaxed introductions to get to know each other. There will be a loose discussion point each week but informal chat with each other is very much encouraged! We will end each session with a short mindfulness exercise to send you on your way. Attendees will also be invited to join a closed whats-app community to continue to connect with other mums online.

Group numbers are small and restricted due to COVID-19 so please let us know if you can no longer take your place so another mum can join us! Come and feel supported by other local mums, practise building your confidence with post lockdown breastfeeding outdoors, explore a calm, mindful relationship with your baby, and importantly, yourself. Connect, share, learn, vent, laugh and sleep. (Ok, we can't promise you that last one, sorry. Cups of takeaway coffee welcome though!)

Book your free spot on the picnic rug via Happity. We can’t wait to see you!
