The Reading Womb

Funded by the Cheshire & Merseyside Women & Children’s Services Partnership, "The Reading Womb" is a 12 week programme, supporting women who are 12 weeks or more pregnant and struggling with their mental health.

Research has shown that people who join in shared reading groups experience an improvement in their mental health, have improved levels of concentration, have a better emotional understanding and are better able to discuss meaningful issues about themselves.

If you are struggling,why not join us for a relaxing supportive session enjoying shared reading of stories specifically for you to connect with other pregnant women, to feel good and to live well. There will be good conversation, refreshments and we will also have a chance to read to your baby.

WEB's Sunshine Prescription and Soul Food

Back by popular demand!!! 

WEB’s Women’s Sunshine Prescription Service enables women from a variety of backgrounds to come along to the centre and experience a safe, non-judgemental space in which to come together with other women, have fun and learn new skills. Our Sunshine Prescriptions and 'Soul Food' projects mean all activities are designed to give people a boost to their confidence and overall emotional well-being. Activities can include anything from arts and crafts, to a trip out to the cinema, to aromatherapy massage. The sessions run from our centre in Gautby Road Community Centre from 1-3pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On alternative weeks, we run our mini-training sessions which allow the women to have a taste of some of the more in depth training we offer, such as learning about mindfulness, stress management, the importance of gratitude etc.
