This group, inclusive of all safe parenting styles and choices, will meet weekly with significant community leaders in the areas of parent and baby support, addressing a variety of important topics for new parents from feeding the baby to back to work transitions to parent self care and more.
Meeting times will alternate each week with start times at 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. to accommodate most schedules and will run for an hour.
Parents are welcome to come as they are and bring their own coffee, snacks, support pillows, baby changing pads, baby blankets, toys, and of course feed their baby however they choose.

There is a $5 suggested fee, however no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
