“I am an Occupational Therapist and a mom of two. I have developed a passion for supporting moms in their journey of adjusting to motherhood. Becoming a mom is a wonderful and exciting time, but it can also bring with it some new challenges that can be hard to face.”
“They say it takes a village to raise a child, but I believe that village is vitally important in the day-to-day support of a mother.” – Sarah Cosentino, founder of Mom Matters.
Mom Matters offers the following services:
Mom Matters Postnatal Group – A unique, supportive group-space for moms with babies under 9 months. Runs weekly for a period of 8 weeks. We cover topics such as:
~ Your Body After Baby
~ Adjusting to Mommyhood
~ Returning to Work
~ Feeding and weaning
and so much more…
“I want Mom Matters Postnatal Group to be a safe and comfortable space for moms to come and access the support they need. I believe that kind of support is vital in these early months of motherhood. They will have an opportunity to have their questions answered too as I have handpicked some well-respected professionals to chat with the moms about those challenging topics in the group.”
Cost: R1250 (for the 8 weeks)
Moms Connect monthly support group: A monthly support group in a comfortable environment for moms with older babies and toddlers. Interesting topics, speakers, activities and social connection over coffee/tea and snacks.
Cost: R100 per month
Mom Matters Individual Home-visits: I will meet you in the comfort of your home. This can happen from the day you arrive home with your newborn baby or any time thereafter. The main focus of this service is supporting you, the mom, in the challenges you are facing and questions/worries you may have in the first weeks and months of your child’s life. I provide practical help and support that will help the mom and family transition into this new and exciting time. I also establish when a referral is necessary for issues like breastfeeding difficulties, baby’s health, mom’s recovery etc. I am currently completing my training to become a certified postnatal doula, a new and very much needed service in South Africa. Contact me to find out more about these packages.
