For New Moms // Lunch & Learn Workshop: The Juggle Struggle

Thursday, Dec 5th, 2019 from 12:00 - 1:15 PM EST

Price: $35 - $40/pp

Location: Octave NYC (Bryant Park), 286 Madison Avenue, 22nd Floor, New York, NY 10017

Going back to work after having a baby is a pivotal time for new moms. There may be excitement to return to “normalcy” and have adult conversations, but there can also be guilt and sadness about leaving your little one. If you’re experiencing this conflict, you’re not alone. This internal juggle is the real struggle for working moms -- we can ace multitasking, but finding compassion for ourselves and letting go of guilt both at work and home can be close to impossible.

During this Octave lunch & learn “The Juggle Struggle,” led by Octave Bryant Park Clinical Director and expert clinician Kristen Scarlett, we will share our stories, learn ways to manage difficult emotions, and develop new routines that will keep us from burning out.

While the majority of parents who deal with guilt are mothers, we welcome all parents to share in this experience. Lunch and refreshments are provided, with complimentary acupuncture treatments by Seanna Sifflet, LAc, MSW following the talk. Registration required. Limited capacity.
