Mother Baby Program

Your body and mind go through many changes during and after pregnancy. A multitude of emotions are experienced and many mothers may experience depression, anxiety, changes in mood, or notice an increase of worry and concern. We explore these emotions in our Mother Baby Program.

About Our Mother Baby Program

Our Mother Baby Program will address the variety of changes that motherhood can bring by providing a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere where mothers will learn strategies for coping with postpartum depression and anxiety, develop skills to help them bond with their child/children, and learn ways to handle stressful situations. The goal of the program is to learn healthy ways of coping with these changes in addition to discovering more about the birthing process and hormonal fluctuations your body goes through throughout pregnancy and after childbirth.

Babies up to age 1 are welcome to join mom at the group. The group rooms are designed to provide a warm and welcoming environment with reclining chairs for each mom and baby.

We offer high and low intensity group options. Our high-intensity group meets in-person or virtually for 2 hours a day, 5 days a week and our low-intensity group meets virtually for 60 minutes, twice per week.

“I found it extremely helpful and insightful. The skills, the relatability with other moms and their experiences, the care of the providers, and the information that I absorbed during my time in the program is very appreciated and empowering. I feel seen and heard and equipped.”

“Having group virtually made attending and participating in group accessible and feasible for me.”

“The mother-baby program absolutely changed my life. I was suffering with so much postpartum anxiety after the birth of my daughter. I felt that I was not able to participate in her life and cares in a productive way because I was so bagged down by my own mental state. The program provided me with the tools, support, and resources to manage my anxiety. My whole world has changed, and I feel that I can be the best mom to my daughter.”
