Mammas are mums like you - Here to help you and your baby
Mammas are volunteers. We are happy to offer our time to help new mums who are learning what it’s like being responsible for a tiny baby! We come from many backgrounds, cultures, faiths and nationalities. We speak over 20 languages between us.
Between us Mammas, we have many babies and children of all ages, each with their own unique personalities and needs. We liaise with midwives, health visitors, children's centres and others across Leicester – we all want to work together to make sure every new mum gets the help she needs.
Whateveryour own questions or challenges, whatever your own personal circumstances, Mammas will always do our very best to offer the help, encouragement, and information you need to nurture your baby as you hope to.
