Edinburgh Mum Buddies

Welcome to Edinburgh's Mum Buddy System. Whether you are looking to give advice and support to other mums or are looking for an experienced mum to give you guidance, then you have came to the right place.

Motherhood is a wonderful journey but it doesn't come without its doubts, worries and feeling of being completely overwhelmed. So whether you want to meet with another mum just once for advice or are looking to build a friendship we will try our best to match you with someone compatible.

What is involved?

Buddies are mums who are a few months or stages ahead of you in motherhood. Buddies offer support, guidance, companionship and provide you with a familiar face to help you on your motherhood journey. We try our best to match you with a mum who has similar experiences and values so that you have lots of in common.

Health and Wellbeing Session

Raise your hand if you love motherhood? Raise hand if you sometimes forget about your own self care?

Motherhood is an amazing journey but sometimes we are so busy giving our all to everyone else that we forget about ourselves.

That's why I have combined with the best companies I know to bring you a holistic day of self care.

The day will include:

*A 30 minute exercise with baby class from Dayle Stewart PT.

*A mindfulness session by Marie from True Connection.

*A nutritional talk, focused on post birth, by Wilma from Rebel Nutrition.

*And a mental health talk from the published author Mummy Jojo.

*There will be an opportunity at the end to socialise with other mums and talk to hosts in more detail.

Worried that the little ones may become unsettled? Fear not Amber, Lottie's Baby Boutique, is a degree qualified childcarer and will be able to give any mums a hand. There will also be a selection of toys for the bigger ones to play with.

All completely FREE.
