postpartum playgroup schedule 

Postpartum playgroup meets most tuesday mornings from 9-10:30 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 and pregnant people too) and it's totally okay if you're late. It's free, super fun, non-judgmental, relaxed, casual, safe and all good. XO
