When a child is born, so is a mother. Our physical bodies, emotional life, and identities all change, frequently in ways that we are not prepared for. This group is a safe space to explore the emotional ups and downs of becoming a mother as you evolve into your new self. The focus is always based on what you bring to the group. Frequent topics include: depression/anxiety, birth trauma, intrusive thoughts, loneliness and isolation, and troubles with your partner. I am honored to serve the mamas of our community with this compassionate, free group aimed at supporting you on your mothering journey.
