Counseling & Support
Our team of counselors and our community-based peer support groups offer the support you need in pregnancy and as parents.
Mom & Baby Support Group
The early days, weeks and months of motherhood can be both joyful and overwhelming. Sharing the ups and downs with one another is the best way to heal and grow.
The MOMS Group is a free peer support group for expectant and postpartum moms experiencing any form of baby blues, anxiety, overwhelm, and/or depression.
All moms are welcome and registration is not necessary. Babies in arms and siblings are welcome. Trained postpartum peer coaches, moms, who have been there and have gone through these experiences already, lead the MOMS GROUP.
Together we learn and talk about: Caring for ourselves and our families, Family sleep and transitions, motherhood: the myth and reality, newborn and family nutrition, identifying your supports, siblings and the newborn family, diapering, baby wearing and attachment parenting, how every family is unique, boundary setting, Mommy anger and other taboo subjects, the new "normal" & effective communication
Meetings 1st & 3rd Mondays, 10am-12pm & the 2nd & 4th Tuesdays 6-8pm.
Snacks & childcare provided. Led by trained postpartum peer coaches. In collaboration with SSM.
Counselors coming soon to Jamaa Birth Village...launching March 27th!
