VerMamas Postpartum Support Group – Held Monthly In Person
Having a baby transforms our lives in the most amazing, unpredictable and challenging ways. In the best of times, there is not a lot of support for people during the postpartum period when they are trying to figure out how to take care of a baby, potentially go back to work, and define their new identity with little sleep and a lot of emotions.
VerMamas is facilitated by Allison Steinmetz. This group is just for you, please come without your baby.
Topics covered include:
Partnerships – communication and expectations
Balancing work/life and career transitions
Sex after baby
Motherhood – cultural messages and ideas
Body Changes/ Body Image/Acceptance
Goals and dreams

Not only did the Vermamas group provide me with an invaluable resource of strong, caring women to connect with on a regular basis about our experiences in parenting, it also helped me to stay connected to myself. Being a Mom changes almost every part of our lives. In setting aside one night a month to attend the VerMamas gathering also provided me a space to listen to myself and hold myself accountable for setting goals for my life that help me feel fulfilled and show up as a better person, in my partnership, as a parent, and in my career. Now more than ever, we need a space to listen, connect and grow together and as individuals. Don’t hesitate to join! It is so worth the investment of time and money. Even after our sessions officially ended, we still meet virtually every few weeks to catch up.
