Co-Sleeping? Extended Breastfeeding? Breastfeeding baby to sleep? Rejecting Sleep training?

If the answer to any of the above is yes, then you are warmly invited to attend the social and support circle for mothers practicing Attachment Parenting in the Battersea, Clapham and Streatham area
The Magnetic Mother’s Circle is a social and support network set up by Nadia Raafat, a co-sleeping, long-term breastfeeding mum of three, perinatal yoga teacher and doula. Our aim is to offer support and connection to local mothers practicing whether informally or formally, attachment parenting.
Here’s how to know if you are an attached parent:

You cuddle, rock or feed your big baby/toddler to sleep
You are breastfeeding beyond six months and would like to continue
You carry your baby in a sling
You co-sleep with your baby or toddler for the whole or part of the night
You are wary of sleep-training methods
You believe in a more gentle baby-led approach to parenting.

The MMC is here to offer attachment mothers support, inspiration and guidance in a non-judgmental way. Mothers/babys and toddlers welcome.
We meet once a month for 1.5 hours, drink tea, eat cake, share stories and experiences and sometimes sing baby songs.
If you would like to join us please RSVP Tel: 07771 687 128.

  1. Dear Nadia,

    I emailed you last week regarding your magnetic mum’s group, which I would love to attend next time. I’ve started the group ‘SW London Attachment Parents’ on facebook. I am currently a member of the High Wycombe natural parenting facebook group, which is an amazing forum with constant lively discussions, support, exchange of ideas and AP tips as well as a place where members are notified of ‘real life’ regular meetings in the local area. As I live in SW London I thought it would be sensible to start a similar facebook forum for local people in SW London to allow us to get together, online and ‘live’ and as a vital support source for local APs.

    I would be grateful if you could pass this information around if you have an email group for APs in the SW area, so local APs can find, join and enjoy it! I also look forward to hearing from you re: the group and see you at the next gathering!

    Best wishes,
    Sandra Bergstrom
