Baby Cafe Mullingar 5th Birthday celebrations

DSCF6278.JPGThe cafe is run by Community Mothers, who share their experiences of parenthood, and offer encouragement and support to all the parents with babies aged 0-12 months who attend.  The baby cafe has a friendly informal atmosphere; tea/coffee is provided as well as information in relation to parenting, vaccinations, weaning, and activities suitable to young babies.  The majority of parents who use the service as not originally from the local area and so it’s an ideal opportunity to make new friends and prevent social isolation.  One mum’s comment ‘great for meeting other mums, seeing and sharing fears about your baby and finding out what is normal’.

The group meets every Friday in Riverside Community Centre between 1130-1pm.  Community Mothers is funded by the family support services in the HSE.
