We’re back on social media!

My Birth Support CIC has grown and changed many times over the past 10 years.  One of its newest things is to get back on Facebook and on Instagram after a 2 year break.

“It’s really easy to get pulled into believing that social media and online presence is everything when building a new service, but we decided to do things very differently when we moved to Canterbury and it’s worked!” Aileen White, Founder and Director of My Birth Support CIC.

We’re not just social on Facebook or Instagram

“When we moved to Canterbury, we wanted to try something new and instead of spending hours on social media, I spent those hours helping parents within other people’s groups in Canterbury.  To meet people in person and offer my service within other groups around d the city has been such a life-giving way to work for the families I meet and for me!” Aileen explains.

This month My Birth Support will be launching their new social media presence through our own page on Facebook and Instagram profile.  This enhances what they already offer online such as their After My Birth Podcast Series, YouTube guided visualisation series and monthly Maternal Journal sessions on Zoom.

 

Of course My Birth’s support has been on Facebook and Instagram in the past:

  • Originally serving families in Medway as Birthing from Within Kent
  • With a move to St Helens in Merseyside, Aileen continued this supportive work, became My Birth
  • My Birth Support became a CIC in March 2021 and has 5 directors all with some lived experience of difficulties or mental health issues around birth.

“A community interest company is a not for profit organisation. We can apply for grants to help ensure all our support is as affordable as possible for families who need our service. We seek to provide affordable support for all expectant and postnatal parents with mild to moderate mental health issues. Our projects help parents who are finding the transition to parenthood difficult, especially those who have experienced birth trauma.” Aileen White

My Birth Support extend this invitation to you:

A last word from Aileen: “We recognise that the support we give you is most important part of all we do.  That’s why word of mouth and your recommendation is the best way to help others know we can help them too.  We will continue to offer our service within well-established groups as well as in our own sessions.

“Thank you to everyone who has already and is already helping spread the word about My Birth Support CIC!”
