What we're about

This is a group that has been meeting since 2003, with only a couple years off until we started up again in 2019. We were most recently meeting at The Landing in Moon Township, but since that facility is closed to public events, we decided to take the group onto Zoom.

The group is primarily led by two obstetric nurses, Edith Davidson and Diana Cooper who both work at a Western PA hospital. We have also been supported by a previous Storkbites group who have continued to meet for several years.

Our hope is to offer a place for new moms to meet and talk about all the ways their lives have changed. We meet with each group for 6 weeks, then take a break, and start a new group, usually at the start of the odd months (January, March, May, etc) Topics we touch on are the many changes in your body, emotions, sleep, financial circumstances, family relationships; your relationship with your partner; self care; babywearing; pediatric visits; postpartum depression/anxiety; your labor and delivery experience; and a final session focusing on what's next for you (return to work, staying at home full time, if and when you'd like to have another baby.)

Storkbites is a place to find friendship. You have the opportunity to learn from each other.

This is a volunteer effort--there is no charge and we are not selling anything. If you are interested in joining a group, you can send an e-mail to storkbitespa@gmail.com. You can also see us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/storkbitesmoms/

Storkbites for New Moms Meeting 6 of 6

Online event

If you are interested in being part of a Storkbites group, please e-mail me at [masked]. I will send you a Zoom invitation from that e-mail.
At this meeting we talk about what is ahead--return to work, transition to being a stay at home mom, thinking about when you would like to have a next baby--or if this will be an only child, and how so many things change as this baby becomes a toddler, a preschooler, a school age student.
