Support Sessions

Virtual Support Groups for New Moms

Mahmee Virtual Support Groups are online video-based hangouts with postpartum experts from the Mahmee provider network and a group of moms with similarly-aged babies. Depending on the topic, a support group may meet weekly, bi-monthly or monthly. Members pay as you go, per session. There is no long-term commitment to a group — just reserve a spot when you have questions or need extra support from the community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to sign up for more than one session at a time?

No. You can sign up for just one session at a time, or for multiple sessions in advance. We’ve designed these support groups to be flexible, so you can jump in (or out) as needed.

Do you charge me every week?

We do not run recurring payments. While you can sign up for more than one at a time, you’re only charged each time you sign up. Our payment system is set up to ensure that you only pay when you sign up, no hidden fees or transactions.

What do I do with my baby while in the group chat?

Most moms in our groups have their baby with them or napping nearby. Sometimes a family member steps in to keep an eye on the baby while a mom is in the chat. We’re a baby-friendly service, so if you want to video chat with your baby in your lap, nurse on screen, or get up in the middle to change a diaper, go for it!

How do I know what the topic is each week?

Generally speaking, each week you get to pick your topic. Each mom can bring up any questions or thoughts surrounding her baby, herself and new motherhood. Sometimes, your group leader will bring in another specialist to talk about a specific topic. In that case, you’ll be notified in advance of what the topic will be.

Who is leading my group?

One of the Mahmee healthcare providers from our team  will be leading your group each week. We try to have the same provider stick with your group. Sometimes they will invite a special guest to lead a discussion one week. They are highly trained and here to answer any questions and lead a meaningful discussion.

What if I can't commit to the full hour?

You don’t have to! The support group is here for you when you need it. So, if you need to drop in (online) and chat for a bit and then leave, you’re not obligated to stay for the full hour.
