Baby & ME
NEW GROUP BEGINS JANUARY 20, 2024 - to join please call us or send us an email here.
This 6 week group was specifically created to support moms. The goals are simple:
- Increase your confidence as a mom and woman
- Reduce stress, and
- Enhance the bond between you and your children
The program is facilitated by a licensed mental health therapist with expertise in maternal mental health and draws upon the most current, research-based information to help support new mothers of infants/toddlers (ages 0-5 years). The group is also open to expecting mothers. The 6 sessions will cover the following:
Session 1: Introductions, Parenting and Reparenting
Session 2: Emotions, Triggers & Anger (Hello MOM GUILT!)
Session 3: How to connect with ourselves and our children
Session 4: Big Feelings and (proven) Parenting tools
Session 5: All about expectations - what are they and how they impact us
Session 6: Our goals, our fears, our life
The sessions are every Saturday from 10 AM to 11:30 AM starting January 20, 2024 in Indio. The cost is $240 ($40 per week); we will be accepting IEHP. To sign up please email us or call us at 442-307-3395 ext 1. Space is limited to 8 people in order to be able to dedicate enough time to all participants.
