A safe and non-judgmental space for moms to gather and share, ask, and grow together! The group is for parents with babies up to the age of 7-8 months (prior to crawling). Most babies come with mom but if your little one is elsewhere you are welcome to come.

Top reasons moms join this group:

  • Enjoy a cup of coffee/tea and have conversations with other adults!

  • Form friendships and develop new playgroups with those in the local area.

  • It is a valuable lifeline for new mothers, where education, resources, and skill building are offered on various issues including sleep, eating, breastfeeding, family, and healthcare.

 

The small groups are facilitated and guided by Jane Hendry, BS, IBCLC, CCE who has been supporting women for the last 13 years.

 

Now she will support you as a New Mom!

Virtual Classes during Shelter in Place!

The Shelter in Place and long distance learning has brought many challenges for families.  For many kids and adolescents, the lack of socialization and school structure/routine, is now being felt at home.  We are currently developing several Virtual Support Groups to help: 

  • Virtual Kid Chit-Chat Group (ages 6-10): children can have a space to interact and socialize with other children their age with a lead therapist to monitor and lead conversations/activities​. 

     

       Cost is $120 for 6-week program ($20 per session)

       Session times are 30 minutes each

  

  • Virtual Staying Healthy Teens (ages 14-18): teens are able to come together where discussions will be led by a therapist around self-care education like eating, sleeping, physical activity, and mindfulness to help them stay strong and healthy.  Cost is $180 for 6-week program ($30 per session).

    • Thursdays, 3:30 - 4:00 pm
