Support Groups

Regardless of how prepared a woman is or how much she looked forward to her pregnancy and her baby's birth, the perinatal period may include some unexpected "highs" and "lows." Footsteps for New Moms is a monthly postpartum support group sponsored by Project Motherpath, which is offered the second Monday of the month at The Gathering Place. The group is facilitated by a trained therapist and operates under a peer support model.

Share is a support group for parents who have experienced the death of their baby(ies) from the time of conception through infancy. The group creates an atmosphere where grieving parents with similar experiences can come together and feel comfortable sharing their feelings about loss and their love for their babies. It is an open group.

Share Groups enable families to share in their sadness, find support and rebuild their hopes through connections, comfort and care. Share is an opportunity to come together with a community of other parents... to understand the experience of your loss...to see the uniqueness of your baby's life and the similarities of your experiences.

This Share Group meets the fourth Monday of every month from 7:00 pm to 8:30pm at The Gathering Place. Groups are held in English only and are facilitated by a trained therapist. Participation is voluntary and all information is kept confidential.

Breastfeeding is natural and normal, but while baby and mother learn this new skill there can be obstacles to overcome along the way.  If problems arise it is important that you get help immediately.

Bestfeeding is a breastfeeding support group sponsored by Project Motherpath, which is offered the second Wednesday of each month at The Gathering Place.

For those seeking more individualized help our in-office Lactation Clinic will be open on Wednesdays from 12-7pm and in-home consultations are available by appointment.
