Bonding with Babies


Do you feel overwhelmed, insecure or alone as a new Mom?


Welcome to Bonding with Babies, a group designed to help moms without a mom create strong, healthy and lasting bonds with their baby during the first year of life by clearly defining their parenting style and family values even while feeling the absence of support and guidance from their own mom. 

  • Are you anxious about taking care of your new baby?
  • Do you feel annoyed by all of the unwelcome and conflicting parenting advice offered by friends  (and your mother-in-law)?
  • Are you tired of being criticized or judged over your parenting style (whether it’s about nursing vs. bottle or crib versus co-sleeping)?
  • Does scrolling Instagram make you feel like an imposter rather than a confident Mom?
  • Have you discovered that you and your partner aren’t on the same page when it comes to raising your baby?
  • Do you wish that you had a support system of other new moms who are going through the same exact struggles as you?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, the Bonding with Babies Group is for you!

The next in person group is starting on 1/18/2022 and the next virtual group is starting on 2/15/2022.  

In this 5 week program, moms of babies under 1 year old can look forward to.

  • Being part of a vibrant support system of other new moms who are open to learning and sharing ways to create a healthy connection with your babies.
  • Using the Mom Center Method to get clarity on your values so you can feel confident about your parenting decisions and end the hours of reading random mom blogs on your iPhone during those late night feedings.
  • Developing your unique parenting style that feels good to both you and your baby regardless of what your mom friends (not to mention your own mom) think.
  • Reading and responding to your babies signals so that when they cry you know if they’re hungry, cranky, or just want to be cuddled.
  • Confidential weekly sessions where you can get all of your parenting questions answered (without feeling embarrassed or judged) by a psychologist with over 20 years of experiencing supporting new moms
  • A Mom Center Toolkit that you’ll be able to use outside of the group if things get off track (because let’s be honest… that’s bound to happen at some point).
