Ages: Moms and infants 0-9 months from start of group
Dates: July 19-Aug 30 (no group 8/9/21)
Time: Mondays 9:00-10:00am
In this unique group, mothers and infants (9 months and under from the start date of the group) will participate in engaging music activities that promote healthy infant development and bonding between mother and child. Unlike a typical infant music class, time will be naturally woven into the group to focus on mom, allowing mothers to make connections with other moms, discuss the challenges unique to the postpartum period, and support each other during this time. Open to all mothers, not just first time moms. However, please make arrangements for any older children, so that focus is on mom and infant.

Each week, our team of board-certified music therapists will lead students through art, drumming, songwriting, and play activities designed to teach strategies to help express themselves in safe and productive ways as well as calm their mind and bodies when they feel overwhelmed.
