Madison, WI area Come together for support during the ups and downs of having a new baby (whether this is your 1st or 4th baby!). Motherhood is a wild and amazing journey, and one that feels better with encouragement, connection, and a few ideas for supporting your baby and yourself. The focus of this group is to provide ideas and tools to feel confident, connected and curious, supporting a solid foundation for your baby (and you) to thrive. Each group is led by a Pediatric Occupational Therapist covering a variety of developmental and mothering topics each week. This is a non judgmental space for open discussion, questions, and learning from each other. This group is appropriate for newborn to pre-independent-sitting babies (typically 6/7 months). Please join us even if this is over naptime, feeding time, etc. It is hard to find a perfect time to meet for everyone AND you are completely welcome to feed, change diapers, or let your baby sleep during our time together - there will be so much to learn within each group! And of course, mama connection is so valuable! Topics: Finding ease in tummy time Baby equipment (& all that’s not needed) + home set up Toys and play Co-regulation (even when things feel hard) Preparing for solids Sleep Babywearing The power of touch - simple ideas Sensory Play Crawling Prep Space for open discussion too Find community and connection with mamas in similar life stage. Gain confidence in connecting with your baby and providing a rich environment for growth. Host Lindsay Williamson is a pediatric occupational therapist, mama, and wife, passionate about setting babies up for success and supporting mamas to trust themselves and their baby. Lindsay has over 9 years of pediatric experience and is the founder of Root to Raise.

Groups: There are no make-up sessions due to the short duration of the cohorts. It is a confidential group so we ask you don’t bring a friend or your mom, but you can encourage friends to sign up with you. There are no drop-in’s either due to this. No refunds/credit for missed classes. Individual Sessions: Please cancel or reschedule at least 48 hours in advance. No shows and late cancellations (less than 24 hours notice) will be subject to the full session fee. This is necessary because Lindsay has made a time commitment exclusively for you during your time slot. You are encouraged to reschedule any appointments you will not be able to attend. For in-person sessions, in the case of illness for yourself, your child, or other household members, an in-home session can be changed to an online session or can be rescheduled. If three late cancellations and/or no shows occurs, this may prompt termination of services.
