Is your new role as a mom a lot more challenging than you expected? Are you looking to connect with other new moms facing similar challenges? We know what you’re going through and are here to help!
Come and meet other new moms in this interactive 5-week postpartum adjustment series. Together, we will normalize and problem solve common challenges of motherhood including: sleep deprivation, stresses of caring for a newborn, role transitions, and relationship strain.
These five, 60-minute sessions led by Dr. Beth Krause, Ph.D. will provide you with strategies shown to manage stress and build maternal confidence and optimism. The course will also offer practical advice on how to stay close with friends and family, recruit help, and maintain intimacy with your partner.
Our goal is to create a pod of new moms that will be consistent for the 5 weeks. It’s okay to miss a class here or there, but we encourage you to get to know one another in these sessions and to find times to meet outside of class as desired. Feel free to bring your baby along and make yourself at home in our studio.
