Milestones Mommy + Me

Our 8-week series is a place where you (+ your little) come to reassuringly connect in the ups, downs, and in-betweens of motherhood, parenting, and this all-consuming life stage of babies. Milestones’ groups are where conversations, questions, and the interest of group members mix with research-back topics and insights designed to ease your mind and enhance your joy in motherhood. 

WELL-MAMAS counseling

We believe that motherhood does not have to be lonely...yes, you may be surrounded by family, friends, and the everlasting responsibilities of a new child at home...but many new moms are left feeling judged by others, unable to meet the unrealistic standards of what motherhood *should* be, and overwhelming uncertainty of how to manage their new "normal."

Groups provide mamas with immediate emotional support, a space to share stories of motherhood without judgement, and the ability to develop and improve a positive mama self-image.

Burd psychotherapy

Abigail Burd, MSW, LCSW, BCD, LCS26867

Abby specializes in maternal mental health, including the anxiety and emotional challenges of pregnancy and new parenthood, infertility, and pregnancy loss. She integrates her professional expertise with her passion for empowering new and expecting parents to survive –and enjoy– this transition.

 

Becoming a parent is a time of adjustment, not just for new moms but for dads and partners, too. Couples’ therapy can also be helpful during this transition. Two thirds of couples experience decreased relationship satisfaction after the birth of a child. Let’s make it better!
