You cannot do this alone!

You need a crew, a village, a space to be heard and to be real!

These groups are open to all expecting and new parents; that said, we know that roughly ONE IN FIVE women in our country - and ONE IN TEN men - are diagnosed with Perinatal Mood & Anxiety Disorders a day (and these are only the reported numbers!).

Many people experience feelings of overwhelming anxiety, rage, irritability, and sadness during pregnancy, in the first year of postpartum, and even beyond.

These groups offer an opportunity to connect with one's emotional side and with others who are pregnant and/or new parents with similar experiences. Babies of all ages welcome!

Circles run in four week sessions and are led by Elizabeth Mangum-Sarach - Nurture founder, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, retired Birth & Postpartum Doula, and Certified Breastfeeding Counselor.

the landing project

{a new parent’s support circle}

Let Nurture{Bklyn} help you build - or add to - your village! Parenting doesn’t happen in a vacuum and we believe whole heartedly that new parents need others around to validate, learn from, and vent to about the “roses and thorns” of parenting. This group is for people in the first year of parenting - come with your newborn, come with your crawler, or come with your almost one year old - just come! We will discuss all ranges of topics from shifting relationships with self and others, sleeping/not sleeping and it's effects, eating (you and the baby!), physical and emotional growth spurts for everyone… all of it! 

The Landing Project is is a four week course intended to provide space for not only sharing the bright and dark REALITIES of parenting but to also learn tools to enhance the experience for everyone!

Our motto is #keepingitreal! We look forward to connecting!

Thursdays 9am-10:30am

Nov. 7, 14, 21, and Dec. 5 2019

Four week course is $100 - Options for paying $30/session are also available

the launching project {for couples!}

Are you growing your family for the first time or having a second (or a third!!) baby?

Are you taking a pause from couples therapy but need a quick “tune-up” before baby arrives? Never seen a couples therapist and want to learn some new tools?

Did you know that marital satisfaction is often at its lowest during the first five years of parenting?

Come to this workshop to learn what it takes to enhance your partnership as you move into one of the biggest transformative times of your lives. This three-hour workshop introduces couples to tools for communication during times of change, keys to regulating heightened emotions during major transitions (especially pregnancy and early parenting), and language to use for increased intimacy and connection with your partner. Come learn some tips that will start you off on the right track - one that creates a team approach for parenting together and {launching} yourselves - and your relationship - into a smooth and JOYfull journey!
