Classes and Events - Mother Baby Hour

Mother Baby Hour is a time for moms and their babies to get together to ask questions, express concerns, learn about resources and share stories. A Registered Nurse/Community Educator facilitates the groups and offers a weekly topic. Join us as early as the first week after your baby is born!

"Mother Baby hour helped me get through the tough days and positively helped me gain confidence in myself as a new mom." 

"Mother Baby Hour is a safe place to share the joys, fears and hard work of being a parent. It has been a great source of comfort to me."
