Adjusting to Parenthood

Calendar/Event Details

This is a new mom support group, offering additional support for the emotional changes and challenges of adapting to parenthood. 

Becoming a new parent can be overwhelming, and it often takes time to adjust to changing roles and unfamiliar experiences. 

Adjusting to Parenthood is a place for women to feel heard and to be honest about the highs and lows of motherhood. We offer a supportive environment in which the full range of postpartum experiences is welcomed, and the everyday realities of being a new mom are understood. 

The group is appropriate for any mother who needs support to vent, to process, to hear other women’s stories.  We offer strategies and ideas for getting through this time including mindfulness exercises, facilitated discussions based on group members needs that week (feeding challenges, relationship changes, new mom guilt, self-care, unexpected challenges, anxiety, and depression).  At the end of each group, we offer a 15-minute question and answer on infant feeding, infant development, and infant and adult mental health. Come and get your questions answered!

Expectant moms and moms with babies in arms are welcome.  We have toys and space for crawlers and walkers and we welcome moms of older kiddos (up to 2 years) but we do not have separate childcare.

$15 drop-in fee, pay as you can.

$45 4-class pass, we recommend attending the group for at least 4 weeks.
