New Moms and Babies Group
Due to health concerns and well being, we are postponing this group until early April. Please check back here for updates.
Birth through first year
Fairfax Community Center (next to Peri Park)
Tuesdays 11-12:30pm - (year round offering with a break in summer)
Facilitator: Lea Ritter, a local midwife and mother
Join us for an ongoing drop in group with an accepting and friendly tone. Our group offers a safe and supportive environment conducive to sharing about topics such as emotional and physical recovery after birth, expectations surrounding being a mother, changes in lifestyle and in relationships, finding support and trusting caregivers, life balance and sleep, navigating medical care, child development, play and temperament, among other topics and issues. It is a time to get out, meet other new moms and dads and talk about whatever is on your mind surrounding parenting. This is a participant led group; please suggest speakers and/or topics of interest.
Bring your baby - feel free to feed, change and let baby talk or fuss.

Join other moms, dads and kids at the charming red building on the hill. Children 1 to 5 years enjoy riding scooters and climbing on a variety of soft blocks and mats. The Pavilion Playgroup is a 2 hour session that consists of activities that encourage creative movement, balance and hand-eye coordination. The first half of each session is free play - parents/caretakers are expected to have fun interacting with their child/children! The last half hour of class is group time...have fun dancing with scarves, playing with the parachute and of course popping bubbles!
