Well Women Franklin
Well Women Franklin is a Peer Support Group. We support women and their families in Franklin and Papakura who are experiencing Antenatal or Postnatal Distress and Anxiety. We focus on wellness and resilience, using a holistic approach. Any women who feels they need some support is welcome to get in touch with us.
The core services that we offer are peer support, 24-hour telephone support, childcare (while the women attend group), in home support & home visiting. We also offer movement workshops, counselling and an individualized goal-setting programme.
Our weekly peer support groups are a safe environment for women to connect with others who may be experiencing similar feelings. Our services help women on their journey to becoming well again and empower them to take back their lives.
