Mama Bloom is a 6-week postpartum group series for mamas with babies under 1 year old.

It is an intentional series exploring pertinent themes in motherhood and the transition into motherhood. The group will be a safe space for mamas to gain support, connection, community and greater fulfillment. This is a place a mama can be known and explore who she is as a new mama without judgment. 

This group begins with a set group of mamas and stays closed until the 6 weeks are over to help create a “tribe” for these mamas. Groups meet weekly for 2 hours and cover themes such as: identity as a new mama, radical self-care, practicing greater presence, and self-love and compassion.  Expect to finish this series and have a greater sense of who you are as a mama and be able to embrace the challenges and joys of motherhood with greater acceptance and ease.  

Check calendar or email Nicole for start dates. Babies always welcome and encouraged.

HSA/FSA Payments can be made here. Registration through the calendar is required.
