Virtual Birthing Parents Group
(AKA Moms Group)
A space to find camaraderie and resources in this new season of life.
This group is a 6-week series for you and your child, 12 months or younger. Originally an in person way to connect and build community, we have now moved this special group online and will return to face-to-face meetings when safe to again meet. You may be a fresh first time parent or a third time parent, we welcome you. This group is open to birthing parents anywhere in the world. We need each other at this time. Bring your friend from interstate or overseas, lets find the silver lining during this trying and challenging time.
This group will be facilitated by A'Maya Ettien, an experienced and nurturing midwife and mother. This group intends to help you find your village, connecting with other new parents, sharing knowledge and space for discussion, questions and laughs. We are here to help you thrive as a new parent.
Each group meeting will offer time to connect, share triumphs and challenges. Each week a specific topic will be covered some of these include infant sleep, postpartum recovery, nursing and infant feeding, and tips and tricks to support you as you journey through your first months as a parent. We have special guest speakers join for some of the sessions, movement and meditation throughout the weeks. Special attention will be given to the new challenges parents and families are facing with Covid-19.
