Mom Groups, Elevated

Supporting and guiding you through the most challenging (and rewarding!) period of your life - new motherhood.

Moms, it's time to take a MOMent.

Take a MOMent out of your "new normal" to build a community of mom friends, get advice from experts, and learn more about yourself and baby. Be ready to laugh, vent, breathe, and connect with the new you.


Each week we'll check-in, share our wins & struggles, and dive into a topic with a local professional in a small intimate group setting. You will walk away with tactical tools and the confidence needed to help your family thrive.

Topics we cover

Weekly sessions feature local pediatric and postpartum experts highlighting a new motherhood topic, such as:


Will I, or my baby, ever get some?


Fed is best, period.


It takes a village.


Because a shower doesn't count

Play and Development

Am I doing it right?

Work/Life Balance

Does it exist?

We are currently running cohorts in two locations, with more coming soon!

All sessions are in-person.



Weekly sessions meet in uptown Hoboken, and often feature tasty treats from your favorite local shops!

Take a MOMent is not just an investment in yourself, but an investment in community which all us mamas need! It’s an intimate group of women going through it together to talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of motherhood in a safe space.
My favorite part of the week are these hangouts. We get to swap stories but also but learn from experts in the space whether it’s for mama, baby or both. I’m so happy I joined - it has made a huge impact on me especially as a first time mama!
