Light Pre and Postnatal Support Doncaster

Light Pre and Postnatal Support Doncaster (formerly Doncaster Pandas) support groups are informal, relaxed and geared towards building a support network.

Whether trying for a baby, embarking on IVF, recovering from a recent miscarriage or have a newborn, entering the stage of ‘motherhood’ can be both beautiful and mentally testing. The transition into the role of ‘mother’ can be stressful and there may be times when you just want to give up.

Come along, hang out, grab a drink and we can chat about The Game of Thrones, Digestives v Hobnobs or what on earth the Teletubbies are on about – and when you want to talk about your mental health, you know you’re talking to someone who’ll listen and say those magic words ‘I’ve been there’.

Groups run on Tuesdays, 1pm-3pm (please check the dates on their facebook page as they run every couple of weeks – not every week) – Rossington Family Hub, Rossington Children’s Centre, Grantham Street, Rossington, DN11 0TA.

Play Dough Recipe

Play Dough Recipe

This is an excellent play dough recipe which is fun to make and never fails to provide amusement on a rainy afternoon!

You will need:

1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
½ cup salt
2 tablespoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup water with food colouring added
1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional but it makes the play dough smell nice!)

Put all the ingredients into a large saucepan, and stir over a medium heat until the dough forms into a ball. Allow to cool, and then knead until smooth. 

Store in an airtight container (a Ziploc bag with the air pressed out is good).

NB: We have been advised that homemade play dough can be a potential danger to household pets and must be kept safely out of their reach at all times.
