Linda Szmulewitz is a licensed clinical social worker, a certified Gentle Sleep Coach, a trained postpartum doula, and the mother of two children.  She developed and began running The Chicago New Moms Group in January 2011, starting first on the south side of the city and later expanding into the north side. Through her extensive work facilitating groups, she has seen firsthand the immeasurable benefits that come from the group setting whereby new moms share experiences and learn from each other as well as from formal parenting education and resources.  Linda has a passion for helping women cope with the wide range of emotions that accompany parenthood and particularly new parenthood.

what other new moms are saying

The Chicago New Moms Group was such a lifesaver right after I became a new mom!  I was overwhelmed and feeling a little lonely in the city, and this group connected me with 11 other women who recently had little ones themselves.  Each week we focused on a different topic (sleep, starting solids, body after baby, etc) and just talked.  It was really nice to spend time each week with women going through the exact same thing as me. Also – Linda is fantastic and has loads of information and advice on almost everything baby-related.  She is a sleep consultant and provides lots of tips on getting your little one to sleep! So important! I highly recommend The Chicago New Moms Group!
