Circle of Hope Support Group
The Minnesota Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (MOFAS) hopes to inspire women to “shed the shame, blame, and guilt” that often results from substance use, abuse and addiction during pregnancy.
The Circle of Hope (COH) is a support group for women who have used alcohol and/or drugs during pregnancy. These women are lovingly known as “Warrior Moms” because of their incredible strength. Many of the women are in recovery and serve as mentors to one another. Together, they support one another in overcoming the stigma of alcoholism, addiction, and FASD. They support one another by offering hope and encouragement as they face the challenges of parenting children with a history of prenatal alcohol and/or drug exposure. MOFAS has an open door and welcomes birth moms in all stages of her pregnancy and parenting journey.
