Greenlake – 7700 Aurora Ave N
Moms and babies
This is a new mom support group, offering additional support for the emotional changes and challenges of adapting to parenthood.
Becoming a new parent can be overwhelming, and it often takes time to adjust to changed roles and unfamiliar experiences. Good support can help ease the transition, especially if it provides a place for new mothers to come together and express the reality of how hard parenthood can be.
Adjusting to Parenthood is a place for women to feel heard and to be honest about the highs and lows of motherhood. It offers a supportive environment in which the full range of postpartum experiences is welcomed, and the everyday realities of being a new mom are understood.
The group is appropriate for any mother who needs support to vent, to process, to hear other women’s stories, has feeding challenges, and to learn that she is not alone. Expectant moms and moms with babies up to one year welcome. These groups are open to any mother in the community.
$10 drop-in fee, pay as you can.
