Adjusting to Motherhood

Nurture-About

Are you a mom, adjusting to a new baby?

Becoming a mother is a massive transformation.
It’s a deconstruction of who you were and a reconstruction of who you are becoming, which includes a different biology, a different body, a different awareness and a different value system. Transforming from pregnant woman to mother is a process, and it involves real growing pains including:

* feeling like you aren't cut out to be a mother (it's a tough job)

* having conflicting feelings about your baby (regret AND happiness can coexist)

* having unwanted thoughts, anxiety, panic, sadness and worry (all of these are normal)

 

Join us in a safe, confidential setting designed to nurture you and create supportive connections between mothers. This group welcomes moms of children newborn to 12 months. Babes in arms are welcome.

Day: Adjusting to Motherhood meets two times a week

Times: Tuesdays @ 11am - 12pm, Wednesdays @ 6:30pm - 7:30pm

Location: Tuesdays @ Family Tree Wellness, Wednesdays on Zoom (online)

Fee: This group is FREE of charge. However contributions help us continue to hold space for community support groups, such as this one. If you'd like to support Family Tree Wellness and our vision of communal healing, our suggested contribution for this group is $20. Any contribution is greatly appreciated.
