Happy Moms, Happy Babes: Building Support One Group At A Time
Mom, noun, the one who comforts, strengthens, teaches and protects. The one who will believe in you for all of your days. The one whose heart is full because of you.
Being a mom is both a rewarding and challenging job. Just when you think you have something figured out, life throws you a curveball to navigate while keeping your child(ren) happy, healthy and safe. When dealing with all the demands being a mom can place on us, making connections with others experiencing similar challenges can help. Support groups allow group members with shared experiences to share their challenges and successes, listen to and support one another and learn from the experiences of others. Support groups can both boost your mom toolkit for stressful times and provide validation that you are not in this alone.

Happy Moms, Happy Babes is facilitated by Rachel March, LCSW and Courtney Bowles, Clinical Intern.
Rachel has been a social worker in Wilmington for 10 years with a special interest in helping people navigate life’s transitions - and what greater transition than the transition into motherhood! The journey brings joys but it can also bring challenges that come with our expectations differing from reality. Rachel works to support moms in balancing accepting their roles as mothers while acknowledging the many changes that follow becoming a mother. She’s excited to foster connection and support between mothers.
Courtney has spent the past decade in Wilmington working with children in a myriad of ways, always looking to support and encourage development. As part of her counseling graduate program, she is completing additional coursework to become a Registered Play Therapist. Part of the beautiful work she gets to do with children is supporting and encouraging their parents. She has seen first hand how happy and balanced mothers can be more present parents. She's excited to get to work on defining and honing healthy coping skills while in a supportive community of mothers.
