Mother To Mother Support Group

Designed to provide mothers with vital support as they navigate their journey through motherhood, the group strives to create a safe place to gather and share experiences in an environment of mutual respect, free of judgement or advice. Trained Parent Educators guide the discussion, allowing mothers to share honestly the realities of parenting. This group is a place where mothers can build their village of support, often crucial during this time in their lives.

  • 1st and 3rd Thursdays, 10:30am-12:00pm

Breastfeeding Question and Answer (Virtual group)

Breastfeeding moms can join the group to have their questions and/or concerns addressed by a Nurse/International Board Certified Lactation Consultant.
