Lynnwood Support Group- Mothering the Mother
Apr 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

This is a support group for expectant and new mothers

The transition into parenthood, or expanding our families, can be overwhelming as we adjust to new roles and unfamiliar, and possibly unexpected, experiences. Having a place where mothers can connect with and support one another about the realities of how hard parenting can be can help ease the stress of this transition.

Mothering the Mother is a place for mothers to feel heard and to be honest about the highs and lows of motherhood. It offers supportive environment in which the full range of peripartum experiences is welcomed, and everyday realities of being a new mom are understood.

Come and find your BRAVE space!
The group is appropriate for any person who identifies as a mother who needs support to vent, to process, to hear other mother’s stories, and to learn that they are not alone. Babies in arms welcome. We have space for crawlers and walkers, but we do not have separate childcare.

Bellingham Support Group- Village Circle @ Bellingham Center for Healthy Motherhood

Mothering can be both a joyful and a challenging experience. In our drop-in groups, we explore it all and encourage women to speak their truths about motherhood. No advice, no judgement, just real mothers sharing their ups and downs. All mothers (biological and adoptive) are welcome regardless of age, gender identity, sexual orientation, and race.

Babies up to 12-months welcome. Sorry, we do not have child care for other siblings/children.
