Supporting young moms in Hout Bay

Young Mom Support is a social support group for young and teenage moms in Fish Hoek. We recently held our first meeting for Hout Bay moms at Hout Bay Secondary School. Some former learners from the school attended with their children. We hope to attract more of Hout Bay’s young mothers to our next meetings and would appreciate any help you could provide in spreading the word.

Young Mom Support aims to provide a safe, non-judgemental and encouraging environment for young and teenage mothers to socialise, meet other mothers with similar priorities and speak of the every day parenting issues they deal with. Young moms are often ostracised and excluded from participating in parenting groups and this can lead to isolation and loneliness.

Our moms come from diverse socio-economic, cultural, educational and family backgrounds – their needs and stories are as individual as they are.  What they all have in common is the drive, will and desire to be good parents to their children. We believe that a mother who is proud of her parenting will do a better job than a mother who believes society’s negative, stereotypical assumptions about her.
