In a sudden turn of events, A Mom Is Born has a new office in Copley Square! Here is my new home:
Boston Integrated Health
581 Boylston Street, suite 700B
Boston, MA 02116
This space is the collaborative effort between A Mom Is Born and 1) Erin Walker, Licensed Acupuncturist, and 2) Frances Masterson, Licensed Massage Therapist. We are looking forward to continuing care for our established clients in our new space; together we hope our diverse and complementary disciplines can broaden our care to more women and their families.
The schedule of moms’community support groups remains unchanged –
12:30-1:45 First Time Moms Group for moms and non-mobile babies
1:45-2:30 Breastfeeding Q&A Session
and you can still sign up online.
Also unchanged is the fee: FREE! Free because I believe that access to support and community-building leads to fewer emotional and physical complications for new mothers and their babies, and fewer complications lead to a greater, healthier, and more emotionally fulfilling experience. There are plenty of obstacles in the path of quality perinatal care; finances should not be one of them.
But here’s what’s new: many clients have spoken to me about wanting to pay for this service. With deep gratitude for the women who wish to place a monetary value on the support and friendship they receive on Wednesdays, I have now enabled a suggested donation of $5.00 per session. The donations can be made online or anonymously in cash at the office. The donation is optional, as all donations are. Donations enable me to keep any free programming at A Mom Is Born running.
I will continue to see clients individually in my new location as well as provide home-based support when that is what makes sense for the mother and her care.
Please be on the look out for new programming: Preparing For Your Fourth Trimester (for women in their last trimester of pregnancy), moms’ evening groups (for working moms and SAHM’s), Crash Courses in Childbirth and Breastfeeding, and all the other creative ideas I can have in my own space.
Thank you for being a part of A Mom Is Born, and I look forward to seeing you in Copley Square!
