Supportive & Inclusive
Community for Families
The Pod at The Village
The Pod is a 4-week support group for breastfeeding mothers 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, IBCLC
Open to new mothers who have a baby between 0-6 months.
A new 4-week Pod will begin on the first Tuesday of each month.
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.
