This group is for post partum mothers who have experienced infertility, prior to the birth of their baby. We will explore how the all-consuming goal of overcoming infertility has been replaced by the longed for baby. Connecting to new moms who have not had the infertility experience can sometimes feel hard.
After years of an idealized fantasy baby, the reality of the real baby can bring up feelings of overwhelm, guilt, ambivalence, and post partum symptoms of anxiety and/or depression. We will discuss identity shifts, career decisions and relationship changes with your partner, extended family, and social circle. We will use mindfulness-based practices to find a few moments of calm in your otherwise very busy day. The group atmosphere is safe, confidential and compassionate.
Babies up to 8 months are welcome.
Diane Coté, LCSW, has been in private practice for fifteen years and specializes in infertility counseling. Her personal journey with infertility provides a deep source of knowing in working with others.
