"Our New Mother’s Support Group is a supportive space for parents identifying as mothers where you can share your experiences and concerns, ask questions, and form community with other moms. Each hour-and-a-half focuses on a topic concerning the profound transition into motherhood, but is open to individual concerns, so bring your baby (newborns up to 18 months), your questions, and your lunch, and meet some new friends who truly “get” what you’re going through."
