RWJBarnabas Health and Saint Barnabas Medical Center are offering a variety of virtual online events to help support new and expecting mothers. Register online and participate via Zoom to talk to other moms! Event include:
Virtual Mommies Moods Group (Saint Barnabas)
Saint Barnabas Medical Center is now offering free Zoom Support Groups for expecting and new moms facilitated by Lauren Meisels, PhD. For more information and to be sent the Zoom link, please register online.
Mommies Moods Group focuses on mother-care rather than child-care. Discussions address issues of anxiety, depression, irritability, and feeling scared and overwhelmed by the transition to motherhood during the pandemic.
Takes place each Friday through July 3.
Virtual New Moms’ Circle Support Group (Saint Barnabas)
New Moms Circle offers an opportunity for moms discuss all facets of becoming a mother during this precarious time. Conversations generally focus on child-care topics, but are dictated by the interests of the women attending the meeting. It's a great opportunity for moms to connect and bond around a common experience.
Each Monday, Women’s Health/Parent Education at Saint Barnabas Medical Center offers a free support group where new mothers can openly discuss the ups and downs of adjusting to motherhood.
Facilitated by Lauren Meisels Ph.D., a licensed psychologist specializing in maternal mental health, topics include transitioning to parenthood, mood changes, baby blues vs. postpartum depression and myths of motherhood.
New moms along with their babies are welcome to attend occasionally or each week. Runs every Monday through August 3.
Virtual Breastfeeding Support Group
Do you have questions about breastfeeding? RWJBarnabas is pleased to offer the community a safe place for new and expecting moms to connect online.
In a friendly virtual environment, their International Board Certified Lactation Consultants will provide guidance and answer questions about latch issues, breast/nipple pain, milk supply concerns, pumping, supplementation, returning to work and weaning.
Don’t let breastfeeding challenges discourage you during COVID-19. They are here to support you along your breastfeeding journey. For more information and to be sent the link to participate in the group please register online. Runs every Monday throughout June.
