Parents "to be"
Support Group

Why join this group?

I am committed to offering support to mothers, fathers, and partners as you navigate the joys and challenges of pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period. My goal is to provide you with evidence-based information, and emotional and practical support.

Together, through shared experiences, shared knowledge, and mutual encouragement, I aim to make you feel empowered with the tools and confidence necessary for a positive transition into parenthood.

1 / How much it cost?

These meetings are free. However, if you wish to buy me a coffee to express your appreciation and keep the positive energy flowing. If you've ever found our parent support group sessions helpful, felt uplifted by our discussions, or simply want to share some good vibes, you can buy me a virtual coffee. Your contribution helps me continue offering this invaluable support to parents-to-be.

2 / Do I have to bring anything?

No, you don't need to bring anything. Just come with an open heart and a willingness to connect with other expectant parents in the group. We're here to support you on your journey into parenthood.

3 / Is this only 1st time parents?

No, our Parents "to be" Support Group is open to all expectant parents, regardless of whether it's your first time or not. We welcome anyone who is preparing for the journey of parenthood, whether you're a first-time parent or already have children. Our aim is to create a supportive and inclusive community where all expectant parents can connect, share experiences, and learn together. So, whether you're a first-time parent or not, you're more than welcome to join us!

4 / Can I bring my young child?

Yes, children are absolutely welcome! I understand that parenting often involves having your little ones in tow. Our support group values inclusivity and family-friendly environments, so feel free to bring your young child along to our meetings. We want to ensure that everyone, parents and children alike, feels comfortable and supported.

5 / Can my partner/ husband/ wife come?

Absolutely! I encourage partners, husbands, and wives to join and participate in our Parents "to be" Support Group. I believe that the journey into parenthood is a shared experience, and having your partner alongside you can be incredibly beneficial. This group is open to both expectant parents, and we welcome the opportunity for partners to engage, learn, and connect with our supportive community. Your partner's presence can enhance the support network and provide a more comprehensive understanding of the parenting journey. We look forward to having you both as part of our community!

6 / Will be there anything to drink or eat?

Yes, we will have tea, coffee, and cake available for you to enjoy during the meeting. We want to make sure everyone feels comfortable and refreshed while participating in our meetings.

7 / I am a single parent "to be", it's alright to come along?

Of course yes! Our support group welcomes all expectant parents, whether you have a partner or not. We understand that the journey to parenthood can take various forms, and we are here to provide support, information, and a sense of community to all who are preparing to welcome a new addition to their lives. You are more than welcome to join our meetings and be a part of our supportive network. Your presence and unique perspective are valuable to our group.
