Postpartum Groups

In this group you’ll get support and advice to adjust to your new role as a parent, learn to better communicate with your partner and family, identify and combat postpartum depression, learn skills to cope with new parent stress and anxiety and build a community with other new moms.


One of the biggest stressors for new parents is that your world is turned upside down and you suddenly find yourself isolated, but never alone. In this group you’ll connect with other new moms and start to build a mommy network to get you through those difficult, but rewarding, first months and years of your baby’s life. 


Shawna Lauer, MFT is an experienced psychotherapist and mom. She’ll help educate and guide the group through this six-week group therapy series. 

We created this group because we believe it takes a village…to raise a baby and a mother!
