New Parents Support Group: Drop-in (1 Session)

Rolling weekly on Thursdays
10:30 AM -12:30 PM EST

This is not a “class” but instead is a peer support group facilitated by a non-judgmental, working mom who has and will cry, laugh and listen right alongside you, while offering her expertise. And maybe take turns holding each others’ babies while we’re at it.

We start each week with a general go around and check-in, followed by activities focused on our weekly topic. We’ll be exploring, writing, and talking about common concerns for new parents and developing strategies and sharing resources for solutions.

Topics may include:

  • Birth processing
  • Sleep, self-care
  • Baby blues vs postpartum depression, and the indigo range between
  • Navigating friendships, old friends, childless friends, new friends, those with different parenting philosophies
  • Feelings of isolation
  • Self image and body image
  • Infant feeding, including lactation, pumping, and bottles
  • Childcare issues and considerations; To work or not to work? Work from home?
  • Relationship balance, including sex
  • What topic would you bring up?

Our meetup is now virtual! Join us from the comfort of your own home. Upon registration you will receive a link to join our class via email.

Select a package from the options below. You’ll be able to select dates (or decide to pick them later) when you check out.
