Pregnancy Support Group


From "Me" to "Mom" - my mindful way through pregnancy

This group is for pregnant women wanting to meet other pregnant women to compare notes, exchange ideas, and make new connections. It is a place where you bring with you whatever the experience is: unsettling mood swings, joyful anticipation & excitement, excessive physical discomfort, anxiety about childbirth & parenting, feelings of hopelessness & despair, a sense of being overwhelmed & burdened.

The main goal of this therapy group is to help pregnant women to reduce stress. Stress reduction is considered to be one important way an expectant mother can achieve better health and prevent certain complications.

Come join others in a supportive group designed to celebrate the wonders of this transition to motherhood and address the emotional challenges of pregnancy. Learn how to cope better, build a support network, and deal effectively with the complex, sometimes unwelcome feelings pregnancy can evoke.
