AfterThird and Erica Shane Childbirth present a Virtual New Parent Support Group

Online over ZOOM | Start Date to be announced | 6 weeks | Starts Jan 14 

Find the joy and process the journey

Gather resources and practices to support your entire family’s well-being. Group calls begin with individual check-ins, and are followed by topics listed below. Receive compassionate & non-judgmental support, with opportunity to bring in your questions, concerns, triumphs and celebrations.
