Mama Bee Pre and Post-Natal Nurture Programmes support young women and their babies by providing the opportunity to strengthen positive parenting skills and establish confidence in effective decision making for the future. This is achieved through a series of interactive sessions, designed to inform and create opportunity for raising awareness and developing practical skills and knowledge in their role as a young parent.
Mama Bee Nurture Programmes offer a series of sessions designed for young women to discuss their attitudes and responses to pregnancy, childbirth and becoming a young mother.
Each Pre and Post-Natal Nurture Programme is delivered over a period of six weeks and is designed to be flexible so the young person can focus on their own identified areas of personal development. The empowerment of young women is key to strengthening confidence and identity as a young parent and is the fundamental theme that underpins these Nurture Programmes.
Mama Bee promotes a collaborative approach to the empowerment of young women and offers something different for them and their babies. All Pre and Post-Natal Nurture Programmes offered, will be accessible for each individual young person based on a referral process and an assessment of the most appropriate content delivery for their needs.

for their birth and understand terminology used that professionals often forget
to explain the meaning of.

“Enabling this amazing group of young women to explore the use of methods to increase physical and emotional wellbeing has been an exciting process. To see this group grow in confidence and learn new skills for the future has been very rewarding for both young people and practitioners. Mama Bee is confident that the participants have benefitted from the strategies offered in the Assertive Behaviours Programme.”
Our Assertive Behaviours Programme provides a mix of self- defence strategies, fitness and strengthening activities as well as life skills.
The Assertive Behaviours Programme combines the expertise of a professional self-defence coach and the specialist youth work delivery skills of Mama Bee practitioners.
Young people will develop their competence in communication skills, decision making, and becoming more assertive. The practical skills they will learn via a youth work process, will help to create opportunity for engaging in education, employment and staying safe.
Each Assertive Behaviours session will have a specific self-defence, fitness and development theme and all participants will keep a record of their personal learning journey and how this can be applied practically in the world of education, employment and staying safe.
Enabling young people to be involved in this programme will have a positive impact on their lives by improving their self-esteem, building their resilience and promoting a positive approach to decision making for themselves.
Reconnect is a programme designed to enable young people and community
members to identify personal motivation and aspirations. This is especially
relevant as we enter the post Covid -19 phase. Identification of personal
motivation will support positive self-maintenance and enable individuals to
build confidence around employability, manage anxiety and provide access to
progressive opportunity in the workplace and beyond.
