Life With A Baby facilitates community events each month to connect you with other moms or dads who have children at the same stage of life.
By meeting other parents who might be just like you, we hope to normalize the challenges parents face and manage expectations of what life with a baby is like. Specific meetup groups include support for single moms, married moms, stay at home moms, young moms and first time moms as well as dads. To see what group meetups are available in your community, click here to find your local chapter.
Some of our activities include weekly walk groups in various parks that allow us to exercise, connect and discuss hot topics as well as a moms-only event once monthly that give your some time for yourself (without baby) to reflect and discuss with your peers.
