New Mom's Groups

Our New Mom and Baby Groups are warm, supportive communities that help you bond with your baby and build lasting friendships. A Registered Nurse and Mom of three leads this weekly group.  Each week features a specific infant development and care topic, along with songs, infant massage, playtime, and a story. Class also focuses on nurturing moms because your well-being is important, too! Join in our new mothers groups as soon as you feel ready after your baby arrives!

We offer two options for new mothers:

  • IN-PERSON new mother’s groups will be 6 weeks and meet at our Over The Moon Center in Norwell, MA. This personal, encouraging environment will closely follow MA/Norwell Health and Safety Guidelines for everyone’s safety.  All Over The Moon Center Staff are vaccinated.
