Navigating Motherhood: The Early Years

A Support Group for New Moms

Diapers, crying, confusion—oh my! 

Although many of us hear about how rewarding parenting can be, there isn't always space to talk about some challenges.

This course is designed for mothers of children aged 3 or younger and is led by Registered Psychotherapist & mom Tammy Scanlan. Tammy looks forward to helping participants learn strategies to develop healthy coping skills and access a powerful sense of community as they navigate this new stage of life.
