Connections: Moms Group & Baby Play Group: Hygeia Center for Healing Arts.

  community member   < less

Connections is a place for babies and those who care for them to meet and enjoy one another. We encourage new and expecting parents, grandparents, and nannies to come enjoy the benefits of getting to know others who have recently birthed or who are caring for babies or young children. Other caregivers are a wealth of support and information, and Connections is designed to be a place where you can share, and glean from others.
Some of the groups will also feature a brief class from a Hygeia practitioner. These sessions will offer information that will enhance your well-being or skills as a caregiver, benefiting you and your baby! All Hygeia practitioners believe in the importance of strong joyful attachment between caregivers and babies, and are skilled in various ways to enhance your health, overall wellness, and understanding of your baby.
Fridays from 2:00 - 3:30pm. We recognize that getting places on time with a baby can be a challenge. Please come when you can!
