New parenthood can be an exciting and scary time. So many changes bring an enormous range of feelings, not all of them were what you expected. Sometimes these new experiences can seem overwhelming which may lead you to question if there is something wrong, when they may be natural responses to the challenging transition into new parenthood.
It helps to talk. Come in to The Mothers' Room. All of your thoughts and feelings are welcome here. If you take time, in the very beginning, to talk about the thoughts and feelings of new parenthood, you can use them as tools to grow as individuals and as a family. Everyone will benefit.
Individual and Group Support: You are welcome to explore all of these changes one on one in the privacy of individual sessions or in the supportive presence of other parents who are going through similar challenges. As a group facilitator I make sure that the group is safe so members can discuss important issues and ensure that each member has the opportunity to truly benefit from the group.
If you have questions or would like to set up an initial consultation,

The Mothers' Room helps new parents focus on the transition to a new family life. Exchanging concerns, stresses and fears in a safe environment frees up mental and physical energy. This revitalization can inspire new ways of feeling, thinking and relating to yourself and your family.
The Mothers' Room developed in response to many parents' requests for a safe and accepting place to express their thoughts and feelings with other parents. There are many support groups which focus on the needs of the new baby. At The Mothers' Room, groups focus on the needs of the mother, father and couple so they can go home and attend to the needs of their family.
Laura Favin, LCSW, Lic. Psya., has enjoyed working with new mothers, fathers and their families for over 13 years. Her work with The Mothers' Room focuses on the fourth trimester: helping her clients transition through the birthing process into new parenthood and family life. As a teacher she worked in early education.
Laura received her Psychoanalytic and Group training through The Center for Modern Psychoanalytic Studies and her MSW from NYU. She is the President of The Pennsylvania Society for Clinical Social Work, a member of The Society of Modern Psychoanalysts, The National Association of Social Workers, Metropolitan Doula Group and Realbirth.
