The Pod at The Village

The Pod is a 4-week support group for breastfeeding parents who are seeking a safe, intimate space in which to connect and share experiences of early parenthood. The first days, weeks, and months with a new baby are filled with many highs and lows. The 4-week format will focus on this delicate transition to parenthood and will include the following topics:

Week 1: Introductions and birth/breastfeeding stories
Week 2: Processing the emotions of parenthood

(the baby blues, highs and lows including expectations and disappointments)
Week 3: Taking Care - Balancing self-care and baby care
Week 4: Managing relationships and role transitions with partner and family

The Pod is facilitated by Sarah Hastings, MSW and Certified Breastfeeding Specialist 
Open to new parents who have a baby between 0-6 months. 
A new 4-week Pod will begin on the first Thursday of each month.

Village Warriors Postpartum Support Group

Facilitated by Mindful Soul Center for Well Being 

Postpartum support is essential after having a baby and can be an important part of treatment for postpartum depression and other perinatal mood and anxiety disorders.

The Village Warriors Postpartum Support Group is a professionally facilitated group for pregnant, postpartum, and adoptive mamas that are experiencing depression, anxiety, or simply a lot of stress during any point in the first 18 months of parenthood.

Mother with her Child

A postpartum support group is a place to check-in with other mothers going through similar experiences with depression and anxiety, learn coping tools, and receive emotional support and validation. The Village Warriors is a safe, judgement-free zone! There is no requirement to participate if you just want to sit in and listen- we are here for you!

 

Village Warriors is offered Sundays at 7pm & Mondays at 8pm

Massage at The Village

Provided by Holistic Movement 

Our postpartum massage and bodywork sessions focus on the new mom’s well-being. Sessions incorporate a range of techniques to help ease the nervous system, alleviate muscle soreness, stabilize weight-bearing joints, restore postural balance and overall relaxation. This can also be a time to assist with scar tissue release from a c section and gentle abdominal massage for core function.
