Maternal Journal is a safe place to create, reflect and share.


Despite its name ‘Maternal Journal’ is a safe space for all, whether or not you are a parent, whether or not you identify as female. We have welcomed people at all stages of life at any age, those who don’t have children, those who are preparing for pregnancy or pregnant, those who are in the menopause, or grandmothers. Each session provides an opportunity to share, reflect and experiment with a (guided) journaling technique. You do not have to be creative or to have even kept a journal before.

Some come to gain ideas for journals, some come to sit around a table (or gather on line) with other others to share or listen to stories, some come to get over the hurdle of what to write on that first blank page! Journaling is a wonderful way of reducing stress, improving emotional wellbeing and letting go. In a world that can feel busy and fast, these sessions are an opportunity to slow down and nurture yourself.

You can get more information on all aspects of journaling by visiting the Maternal Journal website.
