New Moms GroupsNew Mom Groups
GRASP group is the only new moms group in Chicago facilitated by both a Clinical Therapist and a Child Development Specialist. This collaboration is unique in providing moms not only a nurturing atmosphere to share experiences but research based knowledge and expert information they can rely on each week to discuss their most pressing parenting concerns. GRASP is also a safe place for women to explore their thoughts, feelings and reactions to becoming a mother, the effect a baby has on a marriage or partnership and ways to maintain a healthy personal identity as well.

Alison and Sara offer topics to share each week ranging from but not limited to:
• A woman's experience of her transition to motherhood
• Infant sleep and crying concerns
• Breastfeeding
• Ways to give your child the best physical, social/emotional, and cognitive developmental start
• Maintaining a healthy relationship with your partner
• Incorporating your new role as mother into your identity
• Transitioning for a return to work or stay at home role


Our new moms range from those looking for information and a social connection to those who have been referred to us through other therapists and are seeking additional support for struggles with Post Partum Mood Disorders (including depressive and anxious symptoms) and/or anxiety. Our group approach serves both populations well. Check out the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale.

Our goal is to support new moms in enhancing the mother-child bond and empowering mothers. We feel passionate about providing a supportive environment where women can explore the many issues of motherhood, connect with other new moms and get the answers that they are looking for as new parents. We meet for 6-weeks which creates a familiar dynamic that is excellent for sharing and forming relationships.

Email Support
Grasp group new moms also benefit from email access to both Alison and Sara for the duration of the group to allow for additional questions and support.

We hope that you will join us!
