The Maternal Wellness Group (MWG) was founded in the Mt. Airy neighborhood of Northwest Philadelphia in 2004. What started as a brick and mortar center, has evolved into a collective of experts located in the Philadelphia region. MWG ascribes to a holistic wellness model that views birth and becoming a parent as natural, transformative life event, while recognizing how difficult, amazing, and all-encompassing the transition can be. The mission of Maternal Wellness Group is to augment traditional perinatal health care with supportive services, that take into account a woman’s emotional needs as well as her physical needs. MWG believes that when women and their families are supported and informed, birth and postpartum outcomes are greatly improved.
