WHA’s New Parent Group provides regular time and space to share the joys and challenges of parenting in a supportive and non-judgmental setting. It is currently offered at our Gateway office.
Facilitated by our postpartum doula, WHA’s New Parent Group meets weekly at our Gateway office with the goal of bringing new parents together to support and learn from one another. Our postpartum doula will lead the group through introductions, peer support, supervised play and group discussions. Topics could include:
We expect that you will bring your infant (up to six months of age). Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate older children at this time.
There is no charge to participants.
There is no need to schedule in advance; you can just drop in to one of the groups below. If you have any questions, call us at (503) 734-3800.
Groups for parents of newborns through six months are currently offered Tuesdays from 10 to 11:15AM.
