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.
