Mountlake Terrace Support Group- Mothering the Mother
Apr 25 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

This is a support group for expectant and new mothers up to 4 years.

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.

Redmond Support Group- Conversations About Motherhood for Parents of Kiddos 2+
Apr 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our group is for moms to talk about the ups and downs of motherhood. Moms can experience feelings of ambivalence, uncertainty, guilt, loneliness, loss of identity, and burn-out. Our group is a place to talk about all of these feelings (and more) and also to connect with other moms, in a safe, non-judgmental, compassionate setting.

All moms and babes in arms are welcome.

Our group meets on the fourth Thursday of the month.

It is co-facilitated by Myla Rugge and Wendy Dean.
