You've heard it so many times before... it takes a village to raise a child! Well it does... sort of.
We know that your first year with your baby is challenging - You're tired, overwhelmed, and confused - This is where Mothers' Gathering comes in. Whether this baby is your first or fourth, we offer classes that are catered to your specific needs.
It's about building a community. This class can help alleviate those feelings of loneliness - even if you have family or friends around, you can feel alone in this journey as a new mom. Allow yourself the chance to get support from people who truly understand what you're going through. You will make friends for life. Mothers' Gathering provides the opportunity for your little one to find a new buddy, and most importantly, for you to build lasting friendship with other moms. These friendships will undoubtedly make a tremendous impact on your journey through motherhood.
Much more than a "Mommy and Me" class, our Mothers' Gathering classes are education & support groups for thinking moms who are looking for information, guidance & friendship. These eight week sessions truly allow for a place to establish a foundation and gather the tools to determine what fits best for each mom and her child.
Our philosophy is that there is no one "right way" to parent and what works for you might not work for another mother. And what might work one week, might not work the next. Whether you're a first or second or third time mom, we give you tips and strategies for your parenting tool box, helping you to find confidence in your parenting skills and choices.
Groups for new mothers start approximately every 4 weeks. These classes do fill quickly and require pre–registration. You can call (818) 380-3111 to register or use the online registration page.
