New Moms Group
for foodie mamas and pre-crawling babies
It’s about finding your village.
Next group starts in February!
Weekly facilitated group meetings are a conversation in a cozy mom and baby-friendly environment. While you feed and care for your baby, we will connect and explore more.
In the group, you’ll:
– get peace of mind and confidence in yourself as a parent
– feel supported and understood by an experienced newborn specialist and other new mamas who know how it really is with a newborn
– become part of a group of local mamas who stick together and support one another as our babies grow
– gain confidence getting out of the house
– enjoy a delicious gourmet lunch each week at our meeting (view sample meals)
Everything is game for conversation, and this is a safe place to share honestly what’s been hard and what you’re grateful for. We’ll talk about daily priorities like sleep, nursing, diapering, and connection with partners. You’ll have an opportunity to share your birth story, and get help with any challenges that are arising for you as a new mom.
Whether you want to get more sleep, find childcare, get back into shape, or find your groove with breastfeeding, we can help you get there. As experienced newborn specialists, we’ve been called a “baby whisperer.” We will be available to offer ideas and local referrals to things that might help.
You’ll be a part of our online community so you can easily communicate with other moms in the group and coordinate meetups outside our regular Wednesday. Moms also get together once a week outside our group for another informal outing. You’ll build confidence in being able to get out of the house with your baby and get to know other local moms in a comfortable way.
These support groups for new moms stay together after the six weeks are over, and form a community you can connect with as your babies grow older.
If you are hesitant, you can rest assured that being in a safe space, free from judgement where you can talk honestly about how it really is to be a mom makes a huge difference! You’ll feel relaxed and seen as you build confidence and lasting connections. We hope you’ll join us.
We’ll meet close to Oakland and Berkeley, with free parking available. LGBTQ folks are welcome and this group is an inclusive, supportive space for all kinds of mamas. (For other LGBTQ resources and a listing of local birth/parenting practitioners, you can visit lgbtqperinatalassociates.com.)
