Mothers Group: Lamaze Family Center of Ann Arbor.

  community member   < less

For babies born March-May 2013
Meet other new moms and get support and advice after your baby is born. In addition to a weekly topic and circle time, you'll learn songs, simple baby games, and basic infant movement. This series begins each session with group discussion on topics such as getting your baby to sleep, life with a newborn, how to survive the challenges of being a mom, places to go around town with your baby, changes to your relationships, and then later, introducing solids and more. Many mothers find support and friendship here and continue these relationships outside of group time, as well. Moms are encouraged to feed their baby during group, and all you need to bring is a blanket for your baby to lay on.
You can join the group at any time if the session has already begun, and if you are heading back to work, we can prorate the group so you can attend as many sessions as your schedule allows.
Lamaze Family Center, 2855 Boardwalk. $96. 734-973-1014. info@lamazefamilycenter.org www.lamazefamilycenter.org [map]

More than just a student of black music, he has striven throughout his 45-year career to achieve the individual freshness of interpretation necessary to keep it alive. His strengths as a performer are his indelible rhythmic instincts, at once elegant and funky, and his remarkable voice, a thunderous instrument that somehow blends emotive power with an intimate, playful intelligence. His trio includes bassist Bill Rich and drummer Kester Smith.
