In order to achieve the best experience, we request that mothers arrange childcare for their children during the class to prevent disruptions. This class is designed to give new Mothers tools to face the new challenges of Motherhood. It will help you calm anxieties and deal with the stresses that come along with Mothering. This class gives you tools to deal with the emotional side effects of having a new baby. It teaches you about getting the most out of limited sleep, enhancing bonding, developing maternal instincts, and finding focus and mindfulness amidst the myriad of feelings that come with being a new mother. It is the way to find the calm in the new baby storm.

This class is offered monthly.
