Becoming a mother, again or for the first time, can be joyful and challenging. If you’re not feeling quite yourself or it’s not what you expected, you’re not alone. Many women feel overwhelmed, isolated or scared at times. Talking with other moms who are experiencing the same feelings can help. Join us for our free mothers support group where you can be real, valued and understood. – Babies are welcome and child care is available if needed. Pre-registration for childcare is required.
*Pre-registration is strongly recommended. Communication regarding cancellations due to weather and other important information happens via email based on the email provided when registering.
