Bluebell provides services for mums, dads and families experiencing anxiety and depression during pregnancy and up to 2 years after birth.
We offer both group and 1:1 support in Thornbury and the surrounding BS35 area. The Mums’ Comfort Zone group is held on Friday mornings in Thornbury Baptist Church, with free crèche provision.
Mums’ Comfort Zone is a structured, 11 week, therapeutic, group programme for mums experiencing ante and post-natal, depression and/or anxiety and can be accessed by completing a referral form and having an initial assessment with the Bluebell Buddy.
Group sessions last for 2 hours and are term timely during school hours. Courses usually run 3 times a year with start dates in January, April and September.
Our Bluebell Buddies have lived experience of managing depression and anxiety related to pregnancy and birth and can offer 1:1 support in the community or at another local convenient community venue.
Support is available for dads from our ‘Dads in Mind’ peer support workers, who can meet for a 1-2-1 chat.
