New Mother Support Groups & Classes

As a new mom, you’re sure to have questions. That’s why Emerson Hospital offers an array of support groups and classes.

New Mothers Group

Emerson hosts a special New Mothers Group in conjunction with First Connections, a family support organization that provides comprehensive services to families with infants and young children. This group is a place for you to come with questions and concerns, or just to meet and share experiences with other new mothers and their babies who are also dealing with the challenges of these early months. 

Any mom with a pre-crawling baby is welcome to attend this weekly support group which offers an open-discussion format. No registration is required, and the group is facilitated by a certified lactation counselor or consultant. 

The group meets Wednesdays from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. at First Connections, 179 Great Road 104 A, Acton, MA. 

For more information, please call 978-429-8284, or visit First Connections.
