We’re here to support you as you embark on your motherhood journey. The Motherhood Center hosts two meet up groups — Moms Talk and Life After NICU. No registration is required, nor is there a charge, just show up!

What: Moms Talk is a weekly group for new moms with babies up to 6-months-old.
When: Thursdays from 11:45 AM to 12:45 PM
Where: Motherhood Center
What you can expect: Connect with other moms and moms-to-be, get support, and learn from each other’s’ experiences. You can share your concerns, questions, joys, challenges, experiences, and practical tips. Discussions will cover everything from pregnancy, body image, sleep deprivation, infant development, breastfeeding, pregnancy and baby blues, relationships, childcare choices, new identity, regaining your sense of self, and much more. In a safe, supportive environment we will explore many of the practical as well as emotional aspects of motherhood.

What: A support group for families (dads too!) who are NICU graduates.
When: Once a month. Noon to 1 PM. See beneath for 2019 meeting dates.
Where: Motherhood Center
What you can expect:

  • Resources available to NICU families. Providing a wide range of resources for parents from “where to find preemie clothes,” to directing to parents to non-profits for specific needs such as bereavement support.

  • Doctors appointments, therapy appointments, medical equipment, insurance, and medical bills.
