As the coronavirus situation unfolds it is likely that new ways of working will need to be explored to ensure we still continue to provide valuable support to pregnant mums. 

What strategies or ideas do you have to ensure peer support continues once social distancing or isolation becomes necessary?

Idea #1. Added by Rachel Redfearn | 4 months ago

We at the Isle of Dogs are working on using our existing Facebook page to create another Private hub which will be a closed group where pregnant and new mums can support each other during this time with us moderating the group

We are working on it this week but may post our Excersise classes using Zoom . Our Instructor will be to be able to see the women exercising and the women already signed up and screened can excersise safely .

We hope then that we can host watch parties as well, inviting women to reach out for one to one support and sharing stories.

Great to hear how you are progressing with this Rachel. We are trying out the Facebook Portal to run exercise sessions for pre and post birth mums
