Motherhood can be rewarding yet challenging!
The Early Motherhood Support Circle provides a safe, judgement-free opportunity to join other women who are also finding their way through this new journey (or for the second or more time around).
You'll find helpful information and friendship with mothers in the community.
(As always, you are welcome and encouraged to breastfeed or bottle feed and change diapers DURING these sessions.)
This support circle is open to mothers who have given birth within the past 12 months.
Please feel free to bring your baby and their siblings, as a story time session for preschool-aged children will run simultaneously and there is plenty of floor space for tummy time or a nap.
Then check out some books for your little one on the way out!
Registration is not required, Drop-Ins Welcome! (Valid Al Hosn required for entry)
Join us and begin to build your village of support.
