No registration is required and babies are welcome!

Group discussions will focus on a wide variety of post-pregnancy-related topics, such as:
Adjusting to a new “sense of self”
Importance of self care
Mood and emotional well-being
Bonding with baby
Caring for yourself and your family
Physical recovery from birth
Family sleep and fatigue
