New Baby Support Group – Fall 2022

No matter how many children you already have, welcoming a new baby into your home can be a demanding and sometimes bewildering experience. This support group for mothers of new babies (less than 12 months old) is a regularly scheduled drop-in meeting where mothers are encouraged to show up just as they are, with messy hair and messy ideas, to discuss the issues they are finding most challenging at the moment as well as to share their smallest victories with people who understand. Each weekly meeting will have a focused topic based on the needs of the group and time for connection and open discussion.

Joining a parent support group can be invaluable to parents with new babies. This community group is an opportunity for participants to feel validated and understood by what other mothers are experiencing, to gain insight into various resources available in their community, to focus on their own physical and emotional well-being, and to simply have a welcoming and safe space to go to in the early months with their young baby.

The group is free of charge but donations to the West Island Women’s Centre are accepted to help defray the cost of this program.

Limited number of participants (Maximum 14)
