Facilitated by Heather Diamond, Psy.D
Pregnant for the first time? Looking to create a community with other expecting moms to exchange ideas and find support? This group will meet weekly via Zoom for six weeks to provide a safe and facilitated space for moms to discuss their experiences and learn from one another. We will explore several topics, including: concerns about childbirth and parenting; balancing family with work outside the home; navigating new relationships with your partner, parents, and in-laws; and recognizing post (and pre)-partum depression and anxiety. The group will be kept small so that connections can be fostered easily, even in a virtual space, and also so that in-person outdoor meet-ups can be organized safely if the group wants. Facilitated by Heather Diamond, Psy.D.
The EDCJCC is proud to partner with Nested for our childbirth education and newborn care basics classes. At the moment, we are not able to offer on-site in person classes, but please check out Nested’s roster of live and virtual offerings. We hope to return to in-person Nested programming soon.
