Fourth Trimester Support Group

The Fourth Trimester Group is a support circle designed to help you navigate and celebrate the shift that comes from giving birth. We meet to relax, to learn, and to build a community. Led by postpartum doula, come get your questions answered, sit in circle with other postpartum people, and feel heard. We do breathing exercises, share birth stories (optional), normalize the postpartum experience and have tea.

This will take place at Sparrow’s Nest 1492 West Colorado, Pasadena, CA 91105. While the 4th Trimester is weeks 0 – 12 postpartum, this group is open to anyone who birthed within last 6 months. Babies are welcome. After 6 months postpartum, we invite you to join our monthly “Parents Community Meetup.”
