Having a baby is a time of celebration, but it is also a time of big transitions as you try to navigate your way through the uncharted terrain of motherhood.
At The Pump Station, we have discovered that it is so important for new moms to have a community to come to every week where they can discuss and process questions like, “How do I know if I am doing this parenting thing right?” “How do I play and connect with my baby?” “How do I get my baby on some type of sleep schedule?” “How do I keep from getting frustrated with my partner over, well, everything?” “When and how do I introduce solids?” “How do I stay sane during this insane time of my life?” The list goes on and on!
Led by credentialed therapists who specialize in early child development and maternal mental health, this class is one of the best things that you can do for yourself as a new mom. You will meet other women with babies the same age as yours and gain the guidance, education and friendships that all new mothers need.
Based on a mindful and conscious parenting philosophy, our classes emphasize how to parent with reflection, respect and connection. Our goal is for you to leave feeling confident and supported in your new role.
75-minute classes meet once weekly for 8 weeks. We offer 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 every class includes developmental play as well as a check-in time to connect and ask questions. As babies grow, we add new activities to each session to help promote baby’s development. We also provide you with weekly handouts that include the most up-to-date and current research available. Moms develop close relationships with other moms, while babies receive their first social experience.

Parent & Me Groups Recommended Toys: The Pump Station Family carefully selected these items because they are SAFE with lots of interesting visual and textual features. Great for little growing minds, hands, and eyes, and the babies love them, too.
The Pump Station was my lifeline when I had my first baby! Mommy & Me was one of the most rewarding things that I did with my baby during her first year, especially as a first time mom. Every week, we came together to bond with other mommies and babies going through the same types of things that we were experiencing. We loved the nurturing and encouragement we got from the class leader, Jill Campbell, whose guided discussion topics were always mindful, timely and relevant to our babies development. - Liza B
I love the Mommy and Me Classes - I'm about to start my 3rd, 8 week session and I find it really helpful, especially as a first time mom. Our teacher covers everything from screen time, to 1st foods, to "relationship around baby" discussions. This week, we learned about using praise appropriately. The best part about these classes though, are the friends you make. We have so much fun together! - Jeni H
This group was one of the best things i ever did - I will never forget my first class. I came home and was so happy- not only had i gotten out of the house, i found others that were in the exact same place as me, No longer was I at this alone - I now had a group to lean on and learn from. This was a group where it was safe to cry, to be happy, to be mad or just zone out from complete exhaustion. I'm still friends with a lot of girls from this group 3 years later and we still all get together. I just had my second baby and I can't wait to start the mommy and me program for second time moms. - Liz P
