Are you a new mom, or do you know a new mom who may be looking for a group to learn and connect with fellow new moms?
Support and connection for new moms is incredibly important, but often limited. Thus, we are excited to offer New Moms Groups!

About the group facilitator:
The groups will be facilitated by Lilee Karwoski, MA, LMFTA. Lilee has a B.S. in Psychology and an M.A. in Counseling Psychology from Santa Clara University, and is passionate about helping moms navigate new motherhood. Lilee’s inspiration came when she became a mom for the first time (and second time) to her two daughters. She felt fortunate to find and attend a new moms group at her local hospital, where it provided her with invaluable knowledge, confidence, and social support. It was also one of the first places she felt safe bringing her loudly crying baby, and it helped her feel less isolated during a time when she did not have many friends or family around for support. That group was loved by many other moms as well, but it has since closed down, and there are not many other new moms groups anywhere at this time. And so, Lilee hopes to create a meaningful experience and resource for new moms here in Clark County and the Portland area, and the greater community as a whole.
