The HRP Mamas Guided New Mom Support Group is a wonderful way to forge a strong bond with a core group of new moms who live in your neighborhood. The group is led by an experienced and compassionate educator who weaves an educational component into a non-judgemental support group. The group size is limited to 12 mothers and a private chat group on which to schedule ad-hoc in person meet-ups is provided.
Whether you are a first time mom, or have just welcomed a new sibling, we look forward to being there for you!
Join a group of your peers to navigate:
Session 1: Understanding The 4th Trimester and beyond
Session 2: Infant Sleep (a.k.a. When Do We Get Some?)
Session 3: Shifting Partner and Family Dynamics
Session 4: Heading Back to Paid Work / Being a Stay-At-Home-Mom / Working From Home
Session 5: Your Pelvic Floor & Self-Care Strategies
Each week we will leave room for additional topics that may arise based on the specific needs of the mothers in the group, such as:
- Feeding Support (formula, breastfeeding, pumping)
- Newborn Development
- Postpartum Recovery
- Sleep Strategies
- Infant Soothing Techniques
- Life with an infant during a pandemic
- Looking ahead past the infant stage
- Developing coping strategies for anxiety/worry
- Finding Childcare
In addition to the free/drop-in weekly HRP Mamas Mother's Talk Circles & the HRP Mamas Breastfeeding Support Sessions, our Guided New Mom Support Group offers robust support for those early months of new motherhood.
The group meets virtually via live, unrecorded private sessions. Mamas in the group are encouraged to meet-up in person and to continue meeting up beyond the guided sessions.
HRP Mamas educators and facilitators are non-judgmental, dedicated to maternal care and well being, and with decades of experience assisting mothers and new parents via birthing classes, lactation support, parent education and/or postpartum support groups.
