My support group for expectant and new mamas has a new home! New Mama Happy Hour now meets in the classroom at OBGYN North 12221 Renfert Way ste 330 Austin Tx 78758 from 11am-12:30pm every Wednesday.

This FREE group is “drop in” style and unstructured. We usually do some quick introductions first and then dive in. What do new moms want to talk about?

Sleep (or lack thereof), baby sleep patterns, sleep regressions, safe sleep, sleep training, sleep, sleep, sleep!

Challenges of new motherhood, stay at home moms, returning to work moms and all the feelings that go along with all that

Changes in our relationships, including partner, but also our extended family and friends

Breastfeeding, bottle feeding, formula feeding, pumping, milk storage,  introducing solids

Ways we can take care of ourselves (and why this is so important)

Ways we can help our partners be better parents/helpers/spouses

A safe place to share, vent, cry or just have some adult conversation. Bring your lunch or a snack. Don’t worry about putting on makeup or changing out of your yoga pants– you are welcome just the way you are!

How does a doula really make a difference?
Results from different studies have all suggested that having a doula reduces the overall cesarean rate by 50%, Pitocin use by 40% and requests for epidurals by 60%. The use of a doula also showed a major reduction in the length of labor due to fewer stress hormones being produced in the laboring woman’s body.
