Welcome Moms and Expectant Moms!

 

The Moms Groups hosts professionally led facilitated chats in 23 locations each week from bump to baby. In our signature programs, you'll engage in parenting discussions, gather valuable resources, and ask all your parenting questions - from sleep and schedules, to finding child care (and everything in between) to make this time smoother, easier and more enjoyable.

 

After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be connected to a great group of other moms and have essential parenting resources for staying sane in the insane world of parenting.

 

They say it takes a village to raise a child…..you bring the baby, we’ll bring the village.

What Our Moms Are Saying
 
 

Thanks for a wonderful six weeks! This list is terrific – it is so helpful to have all of this valuable information in one place.  I am so happy to have had you by my side throughout pregnancy and now through the exciting older baby phase! Your warmth and knowledge of all things baby has been so helpful to us.  See you soon!” – Amanda

 

 

I know I already said it, but it was such a blessing to have found you! I made some wonderful friends and felt so supported these last 12 weeks.  You do an amazing job.  Thank you! Hugs, and see you in May, God willing – Rachel

 

 

I just wanted to thank you for the extraordinarily helpful information I received in the Expectant Moms class. I will certainly look into future classes with you and hope to sign up for something soon. I truly think you are a wealth of baby and mama knowledge! – Maria

 

~~~

 

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I’d ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure. Renee makes everyone comfortable, and is a reassuring and knowledgeable guide for new moms – Ellie

 

 

I wanted to tell you what a terrific experience the past weeks has been – it really has made a tremendous difference in my experience of pregnancy – it was just amazing to be in a group with other expectant moms and feel like part of a community. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it! Thank you for making these opportunities possible! – Terri

 

 

FAQS

 

 

Do I bring my baby to the group? 

 

 

Babies are welcome! Moms registered for our new moms groups have babies from one week to twelve weeks. If you decide you'd rather leave your baby at home so you can take a break, that's okay too.  Do what works best for you each week.

 

 

 

How accessible is the space for strollers? Are there any stairs?

 

 

Our locations are very mom friendly, no stairs or tight spaces to navigate. Feel free to bring your stroller, or if you are more comfortable with a baby carrier, that's okay too. Whatever works best for you and your baby each week.

 


 

 What if I have to miss a session?

 

 

No worries - do what you can to make it each week,  and if you miss a session, we'll loop you in with the notes. Its about getting the support, resources, and connections and beyond. Much of the support is what happens between the groups. One of the best parts? Making friends with so many supportive moms!

 

 

 

Do you prorate for missed sessions?

 


We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's about connecting with a great group of moms and getting six weeks of support, resources, and friendships.

 

The group's facilitator emails follow-up notes between sessions so you don't miss any of the conversations and resources and you'll be able to hop back in the following week.
