You're passionate about supporting new moms.
You see it as your calling. Maybe your current job just doesn't light you up in the same way.
You know that you want to start working in maternal health and wellness, or expand the services you already provide.
This was me. After the birth of my first daughter, I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could support new moms. As an occupational therapist, I felt constrained by working within the medical model, when I knew I could offer so much more. But other than taking some (ok, lots of) continuing education courses, I didn't DO anything about it. Once I'd had my second daughter, and I started to attend mom and baby groups with her, I knew that had to change. I was tired of going to groups where there was little structure, inconsistent advice, and judgmental facilitators.
I knew as occupational therapists, we could do this better!
That's when Growing Together was born.
My seven week taught mom and baby class, where moms can find connection, support and evidence-based information so that they feel confident in their new role as a parent.
The group includes everything that moms need to know to keep themselves, and their babies, well; we cover ergonomics, posture, breathing, mental health, and look at how moms can safely return to their valued occupations.
For baby, we cover all those ‘hot topics’ that moms are anxious about: feeding, teething, introducing solids, sleep, and more! Moms love the fact that they are getting information from a reliable, professional source. And as occupational therapists, we can provide a unique, holistic view on motherhood, which moms won’t be finding at their local medical provider.
That’s great and all - but is it successful?
The resounding answer is YES!
My Growing Together group sold out on its first run! And it's run successfully EVERY TIME I've opened it for enrollment since then. Moms needed what I was providing! With a mix of self care and connection for moms, and infant development and play for babies, along with a relaxed and non-judgmental feel, the group was an instant success - even during the pandemic, where connections were harder to find for moms.
Here’s what moms are saying about Growing Together:
“I really enjoyed having this class to go to as I was trying to figure out how to be a new mom. I enjoyed the combination of topics each week as well as an opportunity to check in with other new moms. Thank you!”
“Lisa’s enthusiasm and expertise were much appreciated and helped me navigate the first couple months of being a new mom. So grateful I could do this class and that it was offered online. Thank you!!”
Now is your opportunity to make a positive change for moms and babies. I’m offering

What are other OTs saying about this course?
We recently finished supporting the first cohort of OTs completing OTs In Maternal Health: How To Run Mom & Baby Groups As An OT.
And here's what some of the participants had to say about their experience:
"The content in each module was so well organized and informative. The detailed content created a wonderful framework for planning my own mom and baby groups that I can now tweak with my own interests. Both Lisa and this course have exceeded my expectations and I'm excited to see how my maternal OT practice can grow with the ability to now confidently run valuable mom and baby groups."
AL, experienced maternal health OT
Lisa's maternal health course is amazing! It was just what I needed to move my dream and ideas to help new moms into reality. As a working mom myself, the way the modules were organized and presented was perfect. I was able to work through the information at my own pace, but also had accountability to stay on top of my learning through the group calls throughout the course. I enjoyed being able to read the content, print it off to take notes, watch Lisa's videos and return to review content as needed. I loved building relationships with other OTs who have the same heart to serve moms. Lisa was an amazing resource for all of my questions along the way!!
SF, pediatric OT, new to maternal health
The feedback from OTs who are new to maternal health practice, and those who are already working with moms, demonstrates that this program gives actionable steps and support to ensure you know how to run your own maternal health groups. If you've read this far, you're clearly passionate about supporting new moms too, and want to take action to make your dream a reality.
I'm excited to help you take that step - let's get started!
What's your investment for this course?
The value of the course is well over £1000: with all the templates, group calls, and information I'm packing into it; but I want to keep this course accessible to support OTs to work in maternal health, so this course is yours for:
Let’s start supporting more moms and babies to grow together!
Bear in mind that I made over £700 profit running this group ONCE online - if you run one series of the group, you'll have already made back almost double your investment!
I keep the OTs In Maternal Health course cohort small, and limited to occupational therapy practitioners only; I've had interest from other professionals who would like to participate, but I'm keeping this exclusive to OTs as I believe our dual training in physical and mental health makes us perfect to deliver this program.
How is the course delivered?
I want to support you as much as possible during this course. I will be offering three group calls within the six week timeframe of the course, so that I can answer any questions you have, give encouragement and support, and so that you can connect and network with other OTs who are passionate about working with new moms. You will also have the chance to partner with an OT ‘accountability buddy’ who is taking the course at the same time as you, so that you have access to ongoing support outside of the group calls.
The content is delivered through an online platform, MemberVault, with a mix of video content, written text and worksheets. As I know OTs are busy professionals, none of the videos are longer than 15 minutes, with the majority being 2 - 8 minutes long.
How do I sign up or get more information?
As long as there are still places (registration times will be limited and open in late March 2022), you can sign up to receive more information below. You'll receive a FREE maternal health resource list which you can use with your clients (and find some amazing reading material for yourself!), along with the link to sign up for my free online video course on getting started in maternal health for OTs:
