postpartum support


“I was thrilled to discover Amy and all the wonderful work she does when I was pregnant with my second child. Amy has helped me grow into a better parent and a stronger woman. I love the feeling of knowing I get to be in her (and other strong and caring parents) company every Tuesday at playgroup. I enjoy the speakers and guests, but I almost enjoy the days more when we talk openly and honestly about postpartum, nursing and feeding, sleep issues, and anything else that’s going on. It truly is one of the best groups I’ve attended since becoming a parent."
