MOTHERHOOD SUPPORT GROUP
For couples of all types that want to increase communication, empathy, and a sense of true partnership.
While thoughtfully curated Instagram feeds can portray an idealized version of motherhood, most women struggle on some level to keep everything together. The truth is that being a mother is hard, really hard. Most women feel afraid to admit they're struggling. Many women assume that they are the only one who finds motherhood challenging and that something must be wrong with them. But the truth is: you're not a bad mom and you're not alone. There are a variety of experiences and emotions in motherhood and many of them may feel in opposition to each other. When you name your feelings in a safe space, like a motherhood support group, you'll release some of the weight you're carrying and will find support on your motherhood journey.
The proverbial village that's required to raise a child isn't accessible to most modern women and mothers are forced to juggle their many roles in isolation and with insufficient support. This group is for mothers at all stages who feel like they need a community of women to authentically navigate the ups and downs of motherhood.
In addition to my experience supporting mothers as a doula, I am also a mother who needed a motherhood support group like this when my children were little. I combine my knowledge of birth, postpartum experiences, and early childhood years with my psychological training to create a nurturing and healing environment for mothers to find their own unique way. In this group, you will have a safe place to:
Discuss common postpartum and mothering experiences including, but not limited to: Lack of enjoyment in parenting, feeling trapped, missing your former life, feeling insufficient, feeling overwhelmed, being exhausted, and feeling unsupported.
Identify with others who experience similar struggles
Process your conflicted feelings
Explore practical self-care measures
Manage expectations of yourself as a mother
Detangle from societal expectations and start to mother more intuitively
Navigate your relationships
Accept the beauty of being a "Good Enough" mother
