Surviving & Thriving

in the First Year

A Virtual Coaching Group for moms with babies up to 12 months. 

Get prepared to make the most out of that first year!

Find confidence and connection through information, strategies, & other moms who get it. 

What our members say:

"The group gave me foundational language and concepts so I could better understand the crazy [totally normal] changes I was experiencing and how my world was rapidly evolving. I feel better informed and prepared to continue my growth as a new mom-- and I have better tools to handle the inevitably hard days."

As Certified Perinatal Mental Health specialists and as moms ourselves, we know that what the research tells us is true. The most effective support that moms with babies can receive includes a combination of:

  • Concrete information

  • Evidence-based strategies that are easily woven into everyday life

  • Genuine connection with other moms


Our Surviving & Thriving Group is designed with this knowledge in mind, and moms join our group knowing that they’ll receive all three best practices, every single week.

  • What is Mom Brain? Understanding the changes in my brain and hormonal shifts

  • Who am I? ​​How to roll with my shifting identity

  • Are we on the same page? Navigating my relationship with my partner and loved ones.

  • Will I ever have alone time again? How to reclaim it and establish the boundaries I need.

  • Am I a good mom?  Managing expectations, and how to stop comparisons and Mom Guilt.​

  • How am I supposed to do this?  Strategies for creating a plan and getting unstuck.

Each week, we cover topics that matter most to moms, including:
Group Membership Includes:
  • Four 60-minute live group sessions on Zoom

  • Membership in a private Facebook group for your cohort, moderated and facilitated by Holly & Ellen. This group is our way to communicate in between sessions. We'll share more information, strategies, and resources, and you can connect with other group members as well.

  • One 30-minute individual check-in session with either Holly or Ellen to utilize at any point during our four weeks together.

What makes our group unique?
  • Small Group Size allows for a personalized approach for each cohort. We cap all groups at 6 members.

  • Group Leaders who are Certified in Perinatal Mental Health by Postpartum Support International. We’re also moms. This combination of expertise and personal experience creates an atmosphere that’s informed, engaging, and genuine. 

  • Ongoing Support: We check in with our members and provide additional support and resources throughout each series through a private Facebook group just for your cohort. 

  • Our Moms! Moms are resourceful, insightful, and unbelievably strong. Each mom brings her own unique strengths to the table, and all members play a vital role in supporting each other throughout the series. The result is that moms also feel the sense of purpose that comes from knowing they’ve offered other moms support, insights, and confidence. 

Being a new mom can feel overwhelming.

Feel better prepared to make the MOST out of that first year of motherhood through information, strategies that work for you, and connection with other moms who get it.
