"We have expanded from meeting in members' homes, to a church hall and then in January to the Eatons Children's Centre where we now regularly get 35 mums and babies coming along.
"We feel the group is really important as there are not many activities for mums when they have a small baby and yet this is a time when they get a lot of benefit from meeting other mums."
