The space is cozy and the psychologist in the group was helpful in leading the conversation. I really enjoyed the opportunity to participate in the support group.

This is a wonderful place to obtain kind and rational support! I think it would have been incredibly helpful to attend this group within the first two months of my daughter's birth when I felt overwhelmed with the responsibility and sincerely frustrated with the loved ones I typically turn to for support. At this point in the process of becoming a mom, I have been able to dig deep and figure things out for myself and my family, so I don't plan on attending regularly. However, it's incredibly reassuring to know that this amazing resource exists if I should lose my focus or feel less confident in the future.
