True Colours – Honouring the Mother

At True Colours – Honouring the Mother, we honour the path of parenthood: embracing, educating, and empowering māmā since 2018.

We understand the pressures of modern parenting and offer a sanctuary for those facing perinatal challenges like postnatal depression, anxiety, OCD, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

We offer free monthly support groups, both in-person in Tauranga (food and childcare provided) and online, providing a compassionate space for māmā to express themselves openly, validating their emotions, and supporting them to rediscover the joy of parenting. Through shared experiences, mothers form relationships that reinforce their well-being journey within a community that learns from each other.

With True Colours, you gain more than support; you gain a family that sees, hears, and values you, empowering you to navigate parenthood with strength, aroha, and joy.

“I highly recommend attending True Colours groups we had a rough few years especially with PND having this support group monthly is an absolute lifesaver. It's a safe place to listen share and get support with amazing group of women all with their own journeys. Michelle is absolutely outstanding with all the work she has done to create this much needed service and she does an incredible job making such a difference in many women's lives. Thank you Michelle for everything you do” - Amee
