Review from group participant:
"The Womb Room groups provided me with an invaluable opportunity to connect with other new moms in an open, honest and supportive forum. As a first time mom, I found the new mom group to be immensely helpful for my mental health. My daughter is a toddler now, and I enjoy going to the 12 month and older group when I can. - Lindsey P.
