Create real connections, with real moms


Mom & Babe || Mom & Tot Support Groups

"Making the decision to have a child -- It is momentous. it is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." - Elizabeth Stone

Newborns are hard, sleep is hard, parenting is hard, marriages are hard. Actually, sometimes it’s all hard and it takes a lot of work to keep going. Sometimes at the end of any day we just need an outlet and this outlet is conversational, supportive and creative. 

As a mother of a young toddler I know there is rarely (who am I kidding; almost never) a time for a creative outlet at home. Here in these groups we’ll focus on expression, coping, and finding yourself through meditation and creative avenues. This is a welcoming, supportive group providing you with self-knowledge and tools needed for your journey into motherhood while forming bonds with other like-minded mothers.

Each class will include dialogue, mindfulness, expressive arts*, and reflection. These groups are once-a-week for 8 weeks and each week will focus on a new topic:

Week ONE: Sense of Self
Week TWO: Intense Emotions & Coping
Week THREE: Sleep Deprivation
Week FOUR: Communication
Week FIVE: Boundaries
Week SIX: Mindfulness
Week SEVEN: Self Care
Week EIGHT: Wrap Up & Intention Setting

This group is a judgement free zone. This is a space for community and sharing. 
Everyone will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement - so ensure everyones autonomy. 

* Aspects will include: art, poetry, narrative, music, and more. No experience necessary.



Are you drawn to this type of support but these dates/times don't work for you? I offer this 8 week course in a private setting as well. Contact me to make arrangements.

TESTIMONIALS from mothers who attended the group:

"The first week was my favourite topic {Sense of Self}. As a new mom, it feels like your old world and your new world are colliding and finding that middle ground can be really confusing and sad. This discussion helped me realize that being a new mom is a discovery of the best and worst parts of you, and what that means moving forward. It should be an empowering journey, not a sad one, even thought that is hard some days. It's okay to not be okay and to find this journey hard, but it's worth it."
"Open, honest, supportive conversations."
"Kayla often said 'be gentle on yourself'. That really stuck with me, and I say it to myself daily. I genuinely learned to be kinder and more patient with myself, and have been able to practice that."
