New Parent Support Group for BIPOC Parents

November 07, 2023

The transition to parenthood is a rite of passage, one that should be experienced with community. Let us be that community for you!

Join other parents with babies 0-8 months old as we walk through this season of life together, building a safe space and intentional community over the course of 6 weeks. This group aims to provide specific focus on the needs and experiences of BIPOC parents.
