With playgroups on hold indefinitely — and colder weather making outdoor gatherings more uncomfortable — some new parents may be finding it tricky to connect with one another.
Enter Alison Underwood’s Zoom group for new moms. The counselor and social worker at Porter Women’s Health, Alison has been wanting to create such a group for some time. “The isolation the pandemic has caused,” she said, spurred her to do it now, as an online forum.
The group will meet weekly, Thursdays at noon. It is aimed at moms in their first year postpartum, but Alison says pregnant people and those with toddlers are also welcome.
*Due to the recent cyberattack on the UVM Health Network, the first meeting, which was scheduled for this Thursday, has been postponed until further notice. We will let you know when a new date has been announced.*
To join, email Alison, or call her — 802-388-6326 — for the Zoom link.
