“MOMMY CHAT” Support Group for New Moms (& their babies!)
Nothing can truly prepare you for the 24 hour job of caring for an infant. Join an intimate support group, facilitated by local therapist and mother of 2 that helps new mommies break out of isolation and connect with other women who know exactly what you're going through. A different discussion topic for each meeting helps mothers adjust to their so-called "new life" and share experiences in a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment. Topics include (but are not limited to) birth stories, your post-birth body, changes in relationships and sexuality, "mommy guilt", sleep deprivation, coping with stress, building a support network, negotiating boundaries with extended family, redefining balance and finding the time for self care.
