"Somehow, three moms and three babies is
100 times easier than one mom and one baby."
- Tanya Wills, Founder
About The New Parent Support Group:
This is not a "class", but instead is a peer support group facilitated by a non-judgmental, working mom who has and will cry, laugh and listen right alongside you, while offering her expertise. And maybe take turns holding each others' babies while we're at it.
We'll start each week with a general go around and check-in, followed by activities focused on our weekly topic. We'll be exploring, writing, and talking about common concerns for new moms and developing strategies and sharing resources for solutions.
Topics may include:
We meet for 8 Thursdays in Manhattan or 8 Mondays in Brooklyn, but start anytime.
We will prorate the price for you!
Price: $300 (1 parent + 1 baby)
***We are interested in building a community for you. Prorated sessions are available if you will be away or join after the start of the series. You are more than welcome to join a group already in session for a prorated price. We are unable to offer "pay-as-you-go"/drop-ins.***
*Open to parents and babies up to 6 months of age.
. . . a kick ass facilitator, who made me feel so comfortable and created an awesome environment for reflection and community. Thank you so much for everything!"
