postpartum group 

We currently meet Tuesday mornings online at 9:00. Please contact Amy for more details. It's free and everyone is welcome. Here's our upcoming schedule. The weeks with speakers are listed, other Tuesday's we talk about whatever is on your mind. XO

3/16 no postpartum group. happy spring break!

When it's safe to meet in person again, postpartum playgroup will be held from 9-10:30 back at the Clive Public Library. Sometimes we have a specific topic/speaker and sometimes we just hang out. Everyone with little ones are welcome (of course dads, pregnant people, nannies, grandma/pas...too) and it's totally okay if you're late. It's free, super fun, non-judgmental, relaxed, casual, safe and all good. The dates with a speaker/topic are listed. Other Tuesdays we meet and talk about whatever is on your mind. Breastfeeding support is always available. XOXO
