Great group for moms (1st and 2nd time) & babies focused on the joys,
challenges & humorous moments of this rite of passage. It is a 6 week
facilitated group which focuses on helping new moms build a community and
meet other moms with babies with similar ages. There is something about
going through a shared experience, while recognizing that each mom’s
experience is unique, that leads to great connection and support.

The 6 week facilitated portion is a weekly 2 hour meeting where moms share
their experiences, questions, concerns, and get tips on all sorts of
topics. We focus on nonjudgemental support and building connection between
the moms, since this can be an overwhelming and isolating time for many
moms. We also provide psycho-education (as wanted) on different topics
including infant development, sleep/feeding questions, changes in
relationships and family dynamics, transition to motherhood, feelings re:
going back to work or not, postpartum health, and identity as a mom. The
group offers lots of supportand perspective that can be especially helpful
after some sleepless nights!

In addition, we help organize a second meeting during the week for a social
outing where moms get together to go for walks or cafe visits, etc. Our
last groups have offered free talks with q&a time with a Sleep Consultant
and/or Lactation Consultant. This option is available and arranged on a
group to group basis based on the group’s desires.
