The Please Touch museum is offering a new course called Wellness Mamma. Check out the details here:
It’s a Boy… It’s a Girl… It’s what every new mom needs during the huge life transition that is becoming a first-time mother. Wellness Mamma, a six-week workshop for new moms and their babies, birth to six months old, debuts at Please Touch Museum on Friday, February 4. Classes will be held each Friday from Feb. 4-March 11, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Wellness Mamma sessions are led by Donna Ellenbogen, M.S.Ed, LCSW, ABD, founder of Family Wellness Solutions. Donna is a clinical social worker, parenting coach, professor, wife and mother of two. All sessions feature expert advice along with moms sharing tips on how to tackle the new job of motherhood… a job which often comes with no training. Each 90-minute class takes place in Please Touch Museum’s galleries, with one hour of support and 30 minutes of interactive play appropriate for each child’s developmental stage.
“Having a new baby, especially your first, can be overwhelming on so many levels,” said Ellenbogen. “This workshop will help moms feel less isolated and more at ease in their new role by fostering discussions on how to gain control, set schedules, and find time for you.”
Registration for the complete six-week workshop is $200, which includes admission to Please Touch Museum each day. For more information or to register, call 215-581-3165 or visit www.pleasetouchmuseum.org.
