HENRY Buddies

Parents have said: 

"In the early weeks of being a new parent, I really appreciated the regular calls with my buddy. Just to have a kind and impartial ear to listen and encourage was valuable and helped with my confidence and perspective."

“The calls with my buddy have really helped with my mental wellbeing which in turn have helped me be a better mother and partner.”

 “Having a HENRY buddy has made a huge impact on my family and me. It has been very difficult having a baby during the pandemic. With clinically vulnerable and vulnerable members in my family, we were very careful. Friendships with other parents have been difficult to form and so I have not had the support as a first-time mother that I would have had during this time. I did feel quite alone before. Knowing that my HENRY buddy would be contacting me weekly for me to talk to someone about concerns that first-time mothers have was such a blessing and she was an answer to prayer. She was very good at listening to me and giving advice and also making me feel that I was trying my best to be a good mother. She was also good at helping me to see how to deal with my questions with regards to feeding, sleeping, potty training etc.”
