In addition to classes, workshops, and other parenting resourceshappy baby offers weekly support groups for MOMS, including stay-at-home moms as well as working moms, as well as mindful parenting toddler groups . These groups are a nice way to socialize and build your mama tribe, while receiving education, resources + support from our facilitators.  As your baby grows + develops … so do our groups, enabling families to continue benefitting from this valuable resource through the toddler years! A DADDY group (“The Breakfast Club”) + other specialty groups (e.g. “Yoga Tots Pre Preschool Play Group”) are offered as well.

baby groups

Come be yourself, be honest about the trials and tribulations that parents often face, and get helpful support and feedback from the group and facilitators, in a safe, non-judgmental space.  Our mama + baby support groups are led by experienced family therapists, or birth and infant specialists.  We also offer a resource + social group, which is geared towards providing first-time mamas with a “survival toolbox” and an opportunity to learn, laugh, and cry together about all things motherhood. These groups are meant to facilitate building the community by allowing moms a space to not only meet one another, but begin to build relationships within the group.  To help create this dynamic, all of our groups require registration for a full session, which is eight (8) weeks; however, half sessions may be available, space permitting, in special situations.  The fee for our baby groups is $240 for the 8-week session.  If you would like additional information about, or would like to register for any of these groups, please email

the breakfast club: dads group

Thursdays 7:30 - 8:45am || Dads Only || Next Session Begins Aug. 8th * Registration OPEN

Dads, we hear you! You’re not alone! We’ve designed "The Breakfast Club" a group specifically for DADS to build community, sharing common experiences and addressing similar challenges. Parenting can seem really isolating, especially in the baby + toddler years. This is when it can feel as though you don’t get a moment to yourself, or else that your kids only want their mom. Facilitated by Certified Parent Educator Sarah Straton, this group provides an opportunity to connect with other dads, discussing topics such as mindful parenting, partnership and work-life balance. You’ll learn strategies for communication (with big and small people), as well as tools to help you stay calm while holding limits respectfully and kindly.
