Hill House welcomes Little Lovage Club to Beacon Hill for Parent Support Groups. Welcome back for another round! With your prior experience, you’ve already conquered the essentials, but now it’s time to master the art of juggling another baby while tending to the evolving needs of your growing family.
 
Our Here We Go Again Parent Support Group is your go-to resource for addressing the common challenges of parenthood and discovering the best ways to maintain your time and sanity when dealing with both an infant and a toddler. In this gathering of seasoned parents, whether you’re on your second round or more, you’re encouraged to ask questions, swap tips and ideas, and enjoy socializing while savoring those precious one-on-one moments with your newest family addition.
 
You’ll find camaraderie with fellow parents who are also navigating the joys and trials of a growing family. This is an opportunity for you and your baby to forge new connections and feel the warmth of a supportive community that understands the unique adventure you’re embarking on.

Newbies Parent Support Group - Wednesdays 12-1:30PM (0-3 months)

Parent Support Group | 0-3 months for first time parents

Entering parenthood is an awe-inspiring journey, marked by thrilling highs and challenging lows. Our Newbies Parent Support Group is here to provide you with a supportive community to share your experiences and receive valuable guidance.
 
During our sessions, we’ll dive into the nitty-gritty of caring for newborns, covering topics like feeding methods (breastfeeding, pumping, bottle-feeding, and formula) and optimizing sleep routines. We’ll also take time to address the unique challenges faced by primary caregivers, such as seeking and managing support, finding balance between daily responsibilities and childcare, and navigating the complex landscape of relationships.
 
In addition to this wealth of knowledge, we’re strong advocates for fostering connections within the group. We believe that forming bonds with fellow parents is just as essential as gaining practical insights. We’ll encourage you to get to know one another on a personal level and plan enjoyable activities outside of our sessions, whether it’s a casual lunch or other social gatherings. These connections often become a vital part of your parenting journey.

 

This is a 6-week class that begins April 3 and ends May 15, class will not meet on May 8th.

Parent Support Group FAQs 

 

What are Parent Support Groups?
 
 Parent Support Groups are designed to build connection and community with other new parents, get real about the challenges of early parenthood, help work through new relationship dynamics, and provide practical suggestions for infant sleeping, feeding, soothing and more. Groups meet for 90 minutes, 6 weeks in a row. Groups are kept small at 8 participants (no more than 10) and one group facilitator.

 

Who are Parent Support Groups for? 

 Postnatal classes are designed for a primary caregiver to attend with a young infant rather than for couples. We want to ensure there is space to be really honest about how parenthood has affected your own identity and your relationships. That being said, we celebrate the fact that families grow in many ways and if you have any questions about whether a postnatal support group is a good fit for you, please reach out.
