Support Group for Mothers: New Moms Support Groups For 1st & 2nd or 3rd Time Moms

Parent Classes, Workshops & Groups

Support Group For Mothers Is Offering Spring & Summer New Moms Support Groups For First Time & Second or Third Time Moms

Join other moms and babies in a wonderful opportunity for support and connection!

Six week support groups meet twice a week 

Once a week for a facilitated conversation focusing on topics important to new moms: sharing birth or adoption stories, practical concerns like sleep, feeding & comforting, sharing parenting responsibilities, relationships, communication, childcare, returning to work - or not, local resources, identity and more..


Once a week for an activity or outing: exploring the wonderful things there are to do with babies in the gorgeous East Bay.  Helping you gain confidence in getting out and about with your little one. We plan these outings at our regular session each week.

Groups continue to meet after the first six weeks. We plan for this transition during our last session. Most groups stay together for years once they begin!

Groups meet in the comfortable and convenient Emeryville offices of East Bay Lactation Associates & Loving Arms Childbirth Services 

We can meet inside with mitigations or - when weather allows - outside on a rooftop deck with umbrellas for shade 

Upcoming Start Dates:

April 17th

June 4th
