Support Groups

img_1442Having a support network after you have your baby is crucial for your emotional health and beneficial to the transition to parenthood.  At The Birth Center, we offer a number of avenues for support for new parents.

In-Person Mama Baby Groups

Mama Baby Littles

Spend time with other new parents and their babies.  The focus of this group is the discussion of topics relevant to parenting infants, the exchange of support and information, and general camaraderie with other parents. Group is a non-judgemental, supportive, and caring environment where mamas can feel comfortable sharing struggles and celebrations. This group is held weekly, free, and informal. Show up whenever you can!

Every other week, one of our registered nurses will discuss a topic during the first 30 minutes of the group. The rest of the group will allow mamas to catch up and chat like usual! See the calendar for the schedule of topics!

Group meets Wednesdays, 1-3pm, and is for babies newborn to ~5 months. Ages are not strict, move up to our big group when you feel ready. The bi-weekly topics span over 5 months. Many mamas may choose to move up to the big group when a topic comes up for the second time for that mama.

Will it be your first time at group? Here is what to expect! Shower or don’t shower, just get out of the house. There are no expectations, we have all been there and the other mamas are in a similar spot as you. We know life with an infant can be hectic! You will have the opportunity to share your birth story. Don’t want to share? That is okay too! But if you do, we are here to listen. Aside from the biweekly topics for the first 30 minutes, group is just a bunch of mamas hanging out and talking! It will feel good to get out of the house and connect with other mamas!
