New Mom's Support Group

Share experiences with other new moms and their babies up to 5 months old.  This 8-week support group includes support, referrals, guest speakers, discussion of parenting topics, and an opportunity to meet and connect with other new mothers. It is not necessary that you attend every class. You are welcome to attend as many as you can.

Topics are most appropriate for first time moms, but new mothers with other children may also register. For in-person classes, only mother and baby may attend not older children.

Pregnant moms should register for the support group that begins after baby's due date. The topics and discussion are not applicable to pregnancy but are appropriate for babies from birth through 5 months old.

Virtual Sessions: Once you register, a zoom link will be sent in a confirmation email.

If you have any questions or to join a class in progress, please email
