The story behind Mothers Uncovered, a creative support network for mothers, founded in Brighton in 2008.
When a woman gives birth the focus shifts to the baby, leaving many women feeling isolated and unable to process what they have been through. They have to care for a newborn, but there is no infrastructure in place to care for them. They may be delighted and grateful to be mothers, but they need an outlet for the emotions generated by the enormous event they have experienced. A mum and baby group that isn't entirely focused on the child helps mothers reconnect with the women they've always been.
