Caring for a baby or child can be stressful for new and seasoned parents alike along with other family members. Our parent support groups offer comfort, guidance and encouragement. Led by AMFT/APCC, mother of three and studio owner, Leah Turano, who knows firsthand the experience of having children as well as the crucial benefit and need of community as we embark and continue on our parenting journey. Support groups offer a safe haven to nurture new parents as they enter the magical, mysterious and often crazy-making challenges of parenthood. We will consciously celebrate the transitions new moms face while learning and sharing within a community. Along with making new friends, there will be plenty of time to share and ask questions as we explore topics such as: infant development and play, attachment parenting, breastfeeding, postpartum identity, natural remedies, self-care, and infant sleep. Mindfulness practices such as gratitude, affirmation, meditations, and fun baby yoga techniques will be gently explored. Resources for ongoing support, information and consultation will be available. Lactation appointments available before class.
