How do we work – countries coordinators
The essence of our work is to think globally and act locally on building a postnatal community. We are a platform of connecting the family’s search for helpers and a helper looking for a place to serve. Therefore we encourage to set up local networks in towns and villages which possess the knowledge of how to mother the mother. Please let us or your national coordinator know if you are interested in setting up a local network.
There are currently national coordinators active in some countries in Europe.

Patsy Gormley-Steele / Sat Prakash Kaur
Coordinator for UK
Sat Prakash (Patsy Gormley-Steele) is the third eldest of nine siblings and growing up in London was a family effort with grandparents living next door who played an important role in raising the younger family members. This naturally continued on into her own adulthood as she continued to support sisters in raising their children including household jobs like cooking and cleaning. After training as a Kundalini
Yoga teacher in 2008, she was blessed to train with Satya Kaur on ‘The Mothers Journey’ and was invited to join the Post Natal Support Network in supporting women during their first 40-day journey as a mother. She is a mother to a 10-year-old son and continues to enjoy supporting women in the Steiner School Community as well as home school parents and friends living in Norfolk.
The Postnatal Support Network (PSN) addresses the importance of a well-prepared and relaxing 40 day postnatal period. It is an international organisation with a non-medical and social network, informing families and especially mothers about this special and delicate time after birth.
