They say it takes a village to raise a child and it has certainly taken an ever-growing community of people to raise MWM.
It began with two mother-makers, Matilda Leyser and Caroline Thompson. Caroline was integral in the group starting and co-ran many of the sessions with Matilda for the first two years. They were inspired by Naomi Stadlen, who has been running the group Mothers Talking in North London for over 25 years, and also by Lucy Pearce, author of many fabulous books including, The Rainbow Way, Cultivating Creativity in the Midst of Motherhood.
None of this would have amounted to much had we not had the steady and fantastic support of Improbable, who continue to be integral to our sustainability and development.
Liat Rosenthal brilliantly stepped up and wrote MWM’s first funding application and thereby enabled this website to be built and all of the last year’s work and growth to be possible.
And then we had our amazing virtual village of supporters that came together during the course of our Dec ‘17 crowd funding campaign. Here you all are with our great ongoing thanks:
