Support Groups

Having 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

Wednesdays, 1-3pm, Newborn to 5 Months

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!

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!

Mama Baby Bigs

Thursdays, 1-3pm, 5 to 12 Months

Mama Baby Bigs is run the same as Mama Baby Littles. See details above!

Weekend Mama Baby Group

Select Saturdays, 12pm to 2pm (see calendar below for specific dates)

Weekend Mama Baby Group is a peer led group open to all women with babies ~3 months to 12 months. If Mamas with younger babies have already gone back to work, they are welcome to join as well, but we encourage Mamas with younger babies to attend the Wednesday Mama Baby Group if possible. The group is open to all. This includes, but is not limited to, working moms, stay at home moms, breastfeeding moms, hybrid feeding moms, formula feeding moms, moms that delivered at TBC, and moms that delivered at a hospital or home. Group is free and no registration is required.
