Great group for moms who have just had their 2nd (or 3rd or 4th) baby. We focus on the joys, challenges & humorous moments of this rite of passage, as we move forward into motherhood again and with this new baby. It is a 6 session facilitated group which focuses on helping moms build a community and meet other 2nd time moms with babies of similar ages. There is something about going through a shared experience, while recognizing that each mom’s experience is unique, that leads to great connection and support.
The 6 week facilitated portion is a weekly 2 hour meeting where moms share their experiences, questions, concerns, and get tips on all sorts of topics. My focus is on nonjudgemental support and building connection between the moms, since this can be an overwhelming and isolating time for many moms. I also provide psycho-education (as desired) on different topics including infant development, sibling development, sleep/feeding questions, changes in relationships and family dynamics, transition to motherhood, feelings re: going back to work or not, postpartum health, and identity as a mom. The group offers lots of support and perspective that can be especially helpful after some sleepless nights!
In addition, we help organize a second meeting during the week for a social outing where moms get together to go for walks or cafe visits, etc. Our last groups have offered free talks with q&a time with a Sleep Consultant and/or Lactation Consultant. This option is available and arranged on a group to group basis based on the group’s desires. This group will be facilitated by Natashia Fuksman, LMFT.
