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 for six weeks to provide a safe and facilitated space for moms-to-be to discuss their experiences and learn from one another. On the first and last weeks (May 19 and June 23), we will meet in person at the EDCJCC, and then we will meet virtually on Zoom for middle four weeks. 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.
