New Date & Time: Pregnant Moms’ Group – Thursdays @ 4-5pm!!

Every Thursdays, from 4-5pm

Being pregnant is such a sweet and exciting time, with new and sometimes intense moments.  It’s important to know where to turn for support; from finding good prenatal care, writing a birth & postpartum plan, building a support network, staying healthy, getting the right maternity bra to just staying on an even keel with all the hormonal/life changes taking place.

This drop-in group is especially for expectant Moms, at every stage of pregnancy. We’ll talk openly about the roller coaster ride through pregnancy into motherhood and explore the different phases of pregnancy, labor/birth and postpartum period. You’ll also find helpful tools and tips from other expecting Moms and our facilitator, Beth Rees, a Birth & Postpartum Doula, on the following topics:

* Preparation of birth & baby
* Changing bodies & hormones
* Birth options & selecting care providers
* Relationships & Sex
* Nutrition during pregnancy, labor/birth, & postpartum
* Newborn care & parenting
* Herbal medicine during pregnancy, birth & postpartum
* Community Resources
* What you need in your birth & diaper bag- A product review
* Planning your postpartum support team
