North Star Support Group

Counselor-led group meetings providing pregnancy and postpartum support in Atlanta and Alpharetta

 

Our pregnancy, postpartum and parenting support group continues for families living intown and the north metro area of Atlanta. Alexa Gumm, mother of four girls, full-time birth doula and childbirth educator, recently began a peer-led discussion group in order to provide support for both pregnant and new parents.

As a doula, I love chatting with clients during their pregnancies and also postpartum. So many have mentioned how lonely they feel. I want them to know they are not alone. So, come hang out and get to know us! Let’s share our triumphs and struggles TOGETHER.
— Alexa Gumm


After a few meet-ups, Alexa's enthusiasm grew and she reached out to her friend and neighbor, Shubha Swamy, Licensed Professional Counselor, to further promote connection within the group's members. The group provides a soft place to land for new parents that need to share their concerns about postpartum challenges. Meetings are held every first Friday at Goldberg's, 3180 Avalon Blvd, Alpharetta, GA 30009. Led by Shubha Swamy, LPC and Alexa Gumm (founder).

Enter Jaime Filler, client of The Happiest Doulas, mom of two boys, and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Jaime expressed her interest of organizing a pregnancy and postpartum support group for intown families seeking to gain additional social support. Each month on the second Friday, group members come together to empower each other, learn tools to help navigate early parenthood, and practice taking care of themselves as well as their baby. Meetings will be held at Atlanta Medical Center in the office of Intown Midwifery at 340 Boulevard NE, Suite 103, Atlanta, GA 30312. Led by Jaime Filler, LMFT.

You are welcome to ALL meetings at BOTH locations as many times as you'd like to visit us. Invite your friends and bring a few with you. No need to RSVP - just show up! We'll be waiting for you.

If you need postpartum support before the next meeting, join this Facebook page for peer support and further guidance. Please don't wait to reach out.
