The early days, weeks and months of motherhood can be both joyful and overwhelming. Sharing the ups and downs with one another is the best way to heal and grow.

 

The MOMS Group is a free peer support group for expectant and postpartum moms experiencing any form of baby blues, anxiety, overwhelm, and/or depression.

 

All moms are welcome and registration is not necessary. Babies in arms and siblings are welcome. Trained postpartum peer coaches, moms, who have been there and have gone through these experiences already, lead the MOMS GROUP.

  • Family sleep and transitions

  • Motherhood: the myth and reality

  • Newborn family nutrition

  • Identifying my supports

  • Siblings and the newborn family

  • Diapering, baby wearing and attachment parenting

  • Every family is unique

  • The new normal

  • Effective communication
