What Past Participants Have Said:
These workshops helped the stress and fear of having a baby fade away.  The approach to the class instilled confidence in me as a father-to-be, and helped me feel strong and informed enough to support my wife through the birth, and beyond. ~David

These classes were consciousness- raising. The presentation normalized pregnancy and birth, taking away the fear and mystery that this time can bring.  The specifics of the birthing process were covered, and many pain coping techniques were taught.  I left with with a renewed feeling of empowerment and trust of my body to give birth.  ~Carly

Support Group for New Moms

Becoming a mom is a big transition that can sometimes feel overwhelming. During the "fourth trimester" (your postpartum period), it can be helpful to connect with other new moms, share, ask questions, get information and/or support. This group is facilitated by an alternating team, all of whom have experience supporting new moms. Whether you have specific questions, or you just want to hang out and talk, you are invited to stop by with your baby. 

When and Where:
Every other Thursday 2:15 - 3:15pm (directly following our postnatal yoga class)
At Quest Yoga Arts (Moon Room)

This is a drop-in group, but we strongly encourage registration ahead of time.
This is a by donation support group.

Meeting dates 2017:
November 30
December 14
December 28

Moms-to-be are encouraged to attend!

For moms experiencing breastfeeding challenges, we offer lactation counseling services at Quest. Please contact us to inquire: kelly@birthdevi.com.
