We know how important and helpful it is for second-time moms (or third-time moms for that matter!) to have a community to come to every week where they can discuss and process questions unique to parenting more than one child. Questions like:
- “What was I thinking having another baby?”
- “How do handle my older child’s feelings of jealousy”
- “How do I make bedtime work now that I have two children to manage?”
- “How do I help encourage a healthy sibling relationship?”
- “How do I keep from getting frustrated with my partner over, well, everything?”
Led by credentialed therapists who specialize in early child development and maternal mental health, this group is one of the best things that you can do for yourself as a second-time mom. You will meet other second-time and/or third-time moms with babies the same age as your youngest child, and gain the guidance, education and friendships that all new second-time mothers need.
Based on a mindful and conscious parenting philosophy, our groups emphasize how to parent with reflection, respect and connection. Our goal is for you to leave feeling confident and supported in your role as a Mom.
We offer 75-minute sessions that meet once weekly for 8 weeks. There are five 8-week sessions in total, that begin when your baby is 4-8 weeks old and conclude with a very special graduation day, as babies are approaching their first birthday. A new topic is presented for discussion each week, but we always include developmental play, as well as a "check-in" time to connect and ask questions. As babies grow, so does the curriculum, adding new activities to each session to help promote your baby’s development.
