Join us for the JF&CS Women’s Breakfast, benefiting the Center for Early Relationship Support® (CERS). CERS focuses on promoting the best possible infant-parent relationship. Our services are designed to meet the many complex needs of families in the first three years of their child’s life. They are grounded in the knowledge that nurturing maternal strengths within a caring community promotes secure infant-parent attachments. CERS is part of JF&CS, which offers an interconnected network of more than 40 programs that are dedicated to serving people at all stages of life. We serve families of all cultures and religions throughout Central and Eastern Massachusetts.
Carnie Wilson has had a varied career as a singer, songwriter, actress, voice-over artist, author, and talk show host. Having battled her weight and self esteem issues her entire life, Carnie is devoted to lecturing and speaking to women about self empowerment. Her love for communicating with people has been her greatest joy besides her own children. Carnie is featured in a documentary about postpartum depression called When The Bough Breaks, co-produced and narrated by Brooke Shields.
CERS is here to wrap its proverbial arms around new moms, including those who are experiencing postpartum depression (PPD). We provide these new moms with a connection from isolation to caring community, from self-doubt to self-confidence, and from vulnerability to security. Our wrap-around services tie into a network of programs that help link at-risk new moms to resources that can help them become more confident and more resilient.
