Being a stay at home mother is not properly valued in today’s society
One freedom the average mother no longer has is to choose to be at home to care for her children. Successive government policies have stacked the economic system against staying at home while a political and social elite have devalued the role and importance of care in the home.

Support for mothers 
While campaigning for better economic support and government recognition of the important work mothers do, Mothers at Home Matter aims to support mothers practically as they navigate the challenges of raising their children.

Connect with other mothers, nourish your mind and heart, become inspired...

Themes for this course: strength, kindness, resilience, nourishment, acceptance and appreciation, measure and balance - all intrinsic qualities that motherhood demands and draws out from us.

We will explore: 
Family and community: What we give and what we need from those around us and its importance. How has the pandemic affected us.

Joy: Where we find it, what prompts it and how can we allow for more of it.

Change and continuity: how do we deal with both constant change and every day feeling the same.

Feeling isolated? Unsupported? Or just in need of a chat or friendship or laughter?

Connect with others who share similar values about the importance of motherhood.

Each local group is an independent entity under the umbrella of Mothers at Home Matter. Some groups are meeting in person with their children, others online, some for evening drinks – the local groups respond to the needs and desires of its members.
