Are you pregnant or a new mother in San Diego? We want you to be happy and healthy for your little ones. As a parent of two, I can remember pregnancy and that first year can be a time of ups and downs. That’s why I encourage everyone to have a coach, a therapist, a group, a few classes to help you throughout your journey. They say that it takes a village to raise a child, and it couldn’t be more true. Start your village today to help you and your new family. We are sharing our resource list for new mothers for San Diego. [Some resources are free, and other have a fee. Please see their individual websites for more information] Online resources at the end of this post.
