Fourth Trimester Survival Group
Our Winter + Springs Cohorts are open to first, second, and third time parents!
“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 Groups is ideal for all birth parents of babies 0-12 weeks old. We meet on Zoom 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
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.

We work to ensure that no one will be turned away due to lack of funds.
