Farmington Hills, MI (January 3, 2007)--- Botsford Hospital is offering a new support group called “Infant and Parent Support Group- Smoothing the Transition.” This new group allows parents to share concerns about adjusting to the introduction of a newborn to their family dynamics.
The group, facilitated by a mental health professional, will deal with issues relating to infants from 0-1 year of age. Possible topics to be discussed include comforting a crying infant, feeding issues, sleep deprivation, coping with the new role as parents, and sibling rivalry. The support group is a safe place to voice concerns and anxieties that arise after the birth of a child.
Starting on January 17, the group will meet on the third Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Community Room at Botsford Hospital’s Zieger Building at 28050 Grand River Ave. in Farmington Hills. For more information, please contact (248) 442-2565.
