It Takes a Village Mothers’ Circles

Join us foMollie and a Gaggle of babies_1000r a free, confidential drop-in circle for mothers of infants and young children. Take the opportunity to meet other local moms and engage in adult conversation in a mother-friendly space. Children are welcomed and refreshments are provided!

In these safe circles, Mothers are welcome to say what is true for them about motherhood. Our trained facilitators use the MotherWoman peer support model to create a confidential space for mothers to feel heard, valued, understood, nurtured and energized. It is our hope that women walk away feeling less stressed and more optimistic about their roles as mothers.
