We know that your first year with your baby can be extremely hard! You might be feeling tired and overwhelmed, we want to help! So much more than just a Mommy and Me class, our Mothers’ Gathering groups provide Education & Support to moms who are looking for information & friendship. Not just a baby group, or a class where moms will be told how to parent their child, but a place to gather the information and tools to determine what fits best for you and your child.
The Benefits of a Mommy and Me class can be significant for both Mom and Baby. In Mothers’ Gathering, our philosophy is there is not one “right way” to parent. What works for you, might not work for another mother. What might work one week, may not work the next. In our Mothers’ Gathering class, we give you tips and strategies for your parenting tool box, helping you to find confidence in your parenting skills and choices.
Our Mothers’ Gathering mommies are grouped together with other mothers whose babies’ birthdays are generally within several weeks of each other. This allows you to connect with other moms experiencing similar successes and challenges and provides you a network of support.
Our Mothers’ Gathering, Mommy and Me class is ongoing. The first class sessions start when the babies are around 4-10 weeks old, and then continue until the babies are about a year old (including graduation day!). The year is divided into 8 week sessions, and new moms can join at the start of the new session (or mid-session, if space is available). Many moms stay with their group for the whole first year of their baby’s life, and some transfer into the Working Moms group after their first or second 8-week session.
This 90-minute mommy and me class is held once a week for 8-weeks and there is typically six to twelve moms and babies. Each class includes a specific topic led by the expert instructor, an open-forum discussion and Q&A time. For baby, the class includes signing songs, developmentally appropriate toys, movement and other activities to aid their cognitive, social and motor skill development.
Facilitated by our wonderful Mothers’ Gathering instructors including: Synthia Praglin, M.A., J.D. & Mother, Danielle Vorzimer, Psy.D. & Mother, Jodi Milstein, LMFT LPCC & Mother, Taryn Rioseco, DONA ICEA & Mother and Valerie Sadon, LCSW & Mother.
Cost: $295 for an 8-week session.
Time: Monday thru Sunday in the mornings and early afternoon.
