Support and Connection for parents like you

Studies prove that parents significantly benefit from groups, not only because they build relationships, but also because they feel empowered to share their insight with others and learn so much from their peers. 

WITH HAVEN GROUPS, YOU WILL FIND

A place to connect with other parents, while also developing tools to help you thrive.

At Haven, we believe so strongly in the power of connection because it has played such an important role in our experience as a mom. Nothing compares to the comfort you feel when you get a late-night text from another tired mom awake at 2 am. Those messages of validation and commiseration are a lifeline that make a big impact. The feeling that you are not alone is something we believe no parent should be without. 

That's why we created Haven Groups. With her training as a Clinical Social Worker, Jessica offers a nurturing space for members and ensures a non judgemental and supportive environment. Whether you’re joining us to learn how to beat bedtime battles with your three-year-old or hoping to meet some new mom friends, let us be your new parenting....Haven.

Haven Sleep Workshops

For Parents with Children Ages 3 Months-6 Years

BYOC!!! That means Bring Your Own Coffee! And who doesn’t need a strong cup of coffee when your little one has kept you up all night? Pull up a chair in your comfy clothes while we tackle the new kind of all-nighters you never knew would be quite so hard. 

JOIN US IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE YOU:

- You want to connect with other parents going through sleep challenges with similarly aged kids

 - You want to learn from other parent’s experiences and share ideas

 - You need guidance from a sleep expert who can answer your questions, but one on one coaching isn’t the “right fit” for you

 - You want a structured, easy to follow plan that helps you meet your goals and is realistic for your family

*WORKSHOPS ARE ONLY MEANT TO FOCUS ON ONE CHILD PER FAMILY

With Haven Sleep Workshops you’ll work directly with Jessica, but also connect with other parents going through similar sleep issues. Sleep workshops are small group format (only 4-5 families), virtual, and organized based on your child’s age. Each family will have the opportunity to share their concerns and goals, while also receiving feedback from Jessica and each other. Each week, Jessica will cover relevant sleep topics and answer questions. All participants will receive a customized sleep coaching plan and one brief individual plan review and Q&A session with Jessica.

This motherhood gig is no joke; so we are here to tell you that you don't have to pretend that it's all Instagram worthy moments. Enter a safe space for new moms like you.

*EACH SESSION RUNS FOR 6 WEEKS AND MEETS 1.5 HOURS WEEKLY *SOME SESSIONS WILL BE IN-PERSON AND SOME WILL BE VIRTUAL

Join weekly, professionally-led discussions about all the complex highs and lows that go along with being a first-time new mom. Jessica is an experienced Social Worker and Sleep Coach who has worked with a lot of groups and even more moms (plus she is one). There are countless baby and “mommy-and-me” classes, but this one is all about you, mama. For six weeks, sit down with up to 12 other new moms to share, listen and learn. You'll learn some important things like how to set realistic expectations and how to avoid the mom guilt that came out with the baby. But you'll also walk away with a group of new mom friends; and if you don't know already, after six weeks with Haven New Moms, you'll know for sure... A tribe of mom friends is one of the most invaluable gifts you could ever get.

for Businesses

Are you a business owner or human resources director who employs parents of young children? Did you know that when your employees are tired they are less likely to be productive or miss work completely? Many parents of young children go to work the next morning exhausted due to a baby or toddler who kept them up all night. We can help. 

Let Haven create a workshop for your employees so they can create well-rested homes and become well-rested employees. Jessica will meet with you to discuss your goals and then create a workshop tailored to your employees specific needs. The Haven mission will be at the forefront, with each family taking part in the workshop having their own unique solution with a customized plan to get their child’s sleep issues under control.

faq

In 2011 Jessica’s first baby was six months old and wasn’t what people might describe as an “easy baby.” (P.S. What is an easy baby anyways? That question makes us crazy!) Reaching out to other moms with “spirited” babies provided invaluable support during a time that was very emotional for Jessica. To this day, she says that those connections with other moms was the most important thing that got her through these challenging times. The idea to start a virtual mom’s group came to her one day when a breastfeeding baby girl was latched on to her as usual. That’s when mamaSpace was born. 

The mission of mamaSpace is to provide a safe space for moms that is non judgemental while offering support and community. The group has grown over the past ten years to 28k members! The power of a community of moms is hard to describe until you experience it for yourself. The personal stories that have been shared with Jessica over the years about how mamaSpace has impacted member's lives are truly remarkable. It has been one of the greatest gifts to watch the community grow and we hope that you will take a moment to take a look at what mamaSpace has to offer and consider joining yourself.
