Are you ready to meet your new mommy friends?
You'll be welcomed, supported and empowered...and we'd love to have you part of the Granola Babies New Mommy Group!
Granola Babies New Mommy Group Series began in 2009 as a way to support and embrace the joys and challenges of new motherhood. It really does take a village and in our unique Orange County weekly series, you will be supported as a mother, as well as meet other new mothers (and lifelong friends) in Orange County. You'll receive evidence-based information on growing a healthy and happy baby, as well as get a chance to ask questions and share with other mothers.
In this series for new moms, you'll learn evidence-based information and support for your new role as a mother:
- Learn all about infant sleep and how to establish healthy sleep habits.
- Receive resources and how-to for pelvic wellness and postpartum health.
- Learn all the #momhacks and practical mothering tips.
- Learn the proven ways to soothe and calm your baby.
- Receive the how-to for teaching your new baby sign language.
- Learn how to strive through the new roles in your relationships.
- Know what to look for in developmental stages and how to play with baby.
- Know the signs of postpartum blues and depression and how to care for yourself through postpartum months.
- Learn how to keep baby happy and healthy.
We believe in the importance of creating a circle of support for new mothers and facilitating for friendships and new empowering knowledge. Granola Babies for New Moms groups are small with a max of 8 moms per series.
What do mothers have to say about Granola Babies New Mommy Group?
"As a new mom, having this group was such a blessing. I've made friends that I will have for a lifetime. I also learned so much from Giselle. She was non-judgemental and caring. I was having such a hard time with sleep and my baby and she was taught me so much about what was normal and what was not and what I could do for me and for my baby as we went through sleep issues. I could go on and on about what this group meant for me. I recommend it to all of my new mommy friends." ~ Grace
Almost 4 years later, and the bonds we built in Granola Babies' Nurture Baby Naturally class have endured. We've shared and supported each other through our first, second, and even third babies. I'm so grateful I walked into that room with these ladies and started the adventure together. Thank you, mamas, and thank you, Giselle!" - Laura
"I signed up for this class when my first baby was 3 weeks old, thinking I would be able to get out the house a little bit. Yet, I gained so much more! My group has been there to support each other through so much over the past two years and we've nearly doubled the number of babies to love on. I truly found my village by taking this class and not including the invaluable information that Giselle teaches you each week! Thank you is not enough!!" - Jasmine
"This group was (and still is) so helpful for me! It was just wonderful to have support in the early days of motherhood when I had no clue what I was doing. And I developed some really great friendships that are still strong years later." - Crystal
