All classes meeting on Zoom for now!
Welcoming a new baby has always brought joy and awe. It's also a time of overwhelm, sleep deprivation, questioning and a huge learning curve. Pre-pandemic, moms and dads told us they felt isolated and faced self doubt. During the current quarantine, parents are more lonely and exhausted than ever. They are going it alone, with no help, from grandparents, nannies or friends. Parents' need to come together doesn't stop just because we have to physically distance right now. In our online classes, you will still learn about all things baby and make new friends, all while getting support and expertise from our exceptional class leaders. We help you create and celebrate your virtual "village."
Our mission is to bring moms, dads and their babies together to learn, to share their experiences and to support each other during baby’s first year. We’re not meant to do this alone!

What Mommies and Daddies are Saying
After our Zoom class, I felt more connected and less isolated in this crazy world we're in right now. Plus, I learn so much and feel more confident as a mom.
Grounding myself is what my baby needs from me right now and the online class continues to provide that.
You had a significant impact in our lives during this exciting and also sometimes overwhelming phase of being a "young" family.
. . . just how valuable what you do is, and more importantly how much your dedication and experience over the years has come to guide us on a fundamental level. You impact our ability to nurture and raise well adjusted children.
I had no idea how life changing being a part of this group would be- it has helped me feel more confident in my role as a new mother, it has helped create a greater understanding of my daughter, and has fostered many new friendships which I know will continue for years and years.
I would not have survived the first year with such happiness and appreciation and understanding without the class. Thanks for helping me and Jack thrive!
As a licensed therapist, Julia has a lot to offer us and I think we have a lot of love and warmth to offer each other, including when we're meeting virtually.
