This five week series has been crafted for parents of little ones in the first six months of life. Open to parents of babies not yet crawling.
Parenthood is a winding journey full of beautiful surprises and sudden turns as our babies grow and develop more quickly in their first year than during any other period of their life. While each new phase, stage, and progression brings new ways to engage, bond, and support our babies, parents often find themselves longing to connect with others experiencing the whirlwind of their infant’s life.
Throughout the course of this series you will connect with other parents through meaningful discussions, move your body outdoors, and explore your own transformation as a parent to your baby.
Parents will be carefully guided by new parent Lauren Miller Brown to bring to light similarities, challenges, and joys of parenting new babies.
