FREE - Meriter Baby Hour - New Parent Group: Tuesdays and Thursdays 10:00 – 11:00 am
UnityPoint Health Meriter is pleased to offer an in-person opportunity to connect with other parents who have a new baby at home. This group is for parents and new babies up to nine months of age. Get together to ask questions, learn about resources, and share stories and support one another. Each week offers a planned topic for discussion led by one of our Family Health Specialists and often an expert guest!
Registration for this group is offered quarterly, so you only need to register once per quarter. Please register after your baby is born. We ask that you plan to attend regularly once you register. Please note: if you do not attend within the first 4 weeks after registration, your registration will be automatically canceled to make room for another participant. You may attend Tuesdays, Thursdays or both days.
We will have chairs and a limited number of mats for you to use, but feel free to bring your own mat or blanket. Please note, we do not have the set-up to accommodate older siblings.
For your first visit, please arrive 5 minutes early to learn about the group.
Meriter Baby Hour – New Parent Group will meet at the Jeff Levy Education Center, 2180 W. Beltline Hwy, Madison, WI 53713
As a courtesy to the other parents and babies, if you or your baby are sick, please stay home and take care of yourselves. Come back when you are symptom free and feeling better!
