Fourth Trimester Survival Group
Virtual + Brooklyn Options Now Available
“Therapy is good, but this is really good.” - Kate B. FTSG Graduate
"I cannot overstate how helpful the fourth trimester support group was for me, and hence my baby. I thought I wouldn’t have time for it, but it saved me time and worry through the power of solidarity & validation from the members, as well as Ashley’s supportive expertise. It was amazing to see so many moms navigating the same things that I was, saving me from otherwise several unnecessary calls to my pediatrician. The ongoing cohesion of our group is invaluable; I am grateful to hold hands with the moms I’ve met on our shared journeys into motherhood." - Amanda M FTSG Graduate
Our Fourth Trimester Survival Group is ideal for all birth parents of babies 0-12 weeks old. Groups will meet once a week for six weeks with a Birthsmarter educator. Participants stay in touch with each other between sessions, and for as long as they’d like after our series ends via a private chat group.
Over the six weeks we will discuss it all, including but not limited to:
- Birth processing
- The baby blues and postpartum mood disorders
- Infant feeding
- Sleep strategies for the whole family
- Parenting philosophies
- Co-parenting and new identities
- Postpartum rehab, fitness, and pelvic health
- Self-care while parenting
*Please let us know if you're joining after your second, third, or fourth baby so we can ensure there's an even distribution of folks working out similar experiences!
We know it might feel awkward to sign-up for this sort of thing virtually, but feel confident you'll meet the people who will become your go-to people for venting, normalcy checks, and getting advice. You'll find a safe space to be totally vulnerable with other people stuck in the exact same weeds you're in – without the judgement that comes from talking to people you know IRL.
If finances are a concern:
Please reach out about Alternative Pricing.
We work to ensure that no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
