Back at Work Mothers Group

Description:

Working mothers face unique issues – coming together to talk allows mothers to discuss their experiences in a friendly, non-judgmental environment. Mothers in our groups work full-time or part-time, raise their children with a partner or alone, may or may not be the major breadwinners or sole benefit providers, may be working students, may have one child or more than one, newly back at back or have back for a while. With long commutes and a ‘second job’ that begins when they walk in the door, it is clear working moms have many demands to balance and many roles to juggle. You are welcome to bring pre-crawling babies.

Pregnant Mothers Group

Description:

Are you beginning to imagine yourself as a mother? The intentions you set for yourself as a mother and the care you take of your body as your baby grows and develops are the beginnings of parenting. This joyful (but complicated) transition creates both a desire to go deep into your feelings, and to go wide into a broader community. This group is a chance to start to build your new community of fellow parents and to prepare to meet your baby with love and confidence. During the facilitated group, you will come together with other pregnant moms to talk about your thoughts and feelings, questions and concerns, doubts and joys as you begin your journey as a mother.
