Community

The cornerstone of The Family Room’s mission is community and it is something we do really well. We have created a non-judgmental, safe space for new parents to be real. Whether through our classes or our regularly-hosted free community events and drop-in groups, we offer lots of ways to connect, learn, and have fun.

Playgroup

Get out of the house and make a friend! Our casual drop-in playgroup is not only fun for babies/toddlers, but for parents and caregivers, too. We provide toys — you provide the kids.

Postpartum Support Group (drop-in)

This group offers moms and birthing people a warm and safe place to speak openly about the transition into motherhood. Whether you’re experiencing symptoms of Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders or simply needing extra support and validation from others experiencing the ups and downs of early parenting, we are here to support you.

Note: Our support group is facilitated by a licensed psychotherapist, but it is ran by you! The facilitator is here to answer questions, guide the discussion, and provide resources and referrals as needed. This is not a therapy group nor a substitute for psychiatric care or psychotherapy.

WHO: New and new again moms within 12 months postpartum (babies welcome!)

WHEN: Wednesdays at 3 pm starting on February 14, 2024

COST: free
LOCATION: Virtual
