New Moms' Group
Lead by Hilary Baxendale, CLC
Join other new mamas at this casual discussion group tailored to moms of babies newborn to 1 year. We talk about everything related to life with a new baby -- breastfeeding, parenting, sleeping patterns (or lack thereof), etc., etc. -- and lots of topics that have absolutely nothing to do with babies. But most importantly, the hope is that you will meet other area mamas who will become treasured new friends with similarly-aged children. This is a social group for all new mamas, including second-timers and formula-feeding mamas. (Read what others have said about the group on our testimonials page.)
Please note: Since this is a group for newborn babies, please leave older siblings (and their germs) at home. Thanks for understanding.
- Wednesdays, 11-12:30, at Hilary's house (68 Prince Street in Hastings). No RSVP or registration necessary. Questions? Call Hilary at 401-743-0814.
Fee: Pay what you wish. The suggested rate is $20.
Not quite ready to leave the house? One-on-one new mom/breastfeeding support is also available.
It's what you WANT, it's what you NEED, and it requires no luggage. Random Retreat is 60 minutes of thought-provoking, creativity-sparking, energy-restoring time spent amongst other fabulous women. It's an appointment with yourself to dream and scheme and open to new possibilities. An opportunity to have a whole, uninterrupted thought without the distractions of children and the demands of home. It’s a pause in the schedule, a chance to replenish yourself so that you have more to give. It's a space to relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect with who you were before children and who you hope to be now. It's a place to learn new things, rediscover passions, define goals. It's one hour, once a week for you to focus on you. Is it right for you? You must come to find out. Come!
Please note: Since we want you to focus on you, we very respectfully ask you to leave little ones at home (but precrawling babies are welcome).
- Every Friday morning, 9:30-10:30 (with time to linger afterwards if you'd like). Our next gathering will be announced soon. No RSVP is ever necessary, just come! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to join our mailing list.
Fee: $10 per week, payable in person.
