Free Support Groups for Parents of Infants and Pregnant Women

Are you the parent of a newborn? Are you balancing the excitement of building your family alongside feelings of exhaustion and overwhelm? Since 1989, our FREE support groups have provided safe and nurturing spaces for thousands of parents with their new babies (up to age one) to give and receive support, ask questions, and begin building a parent community close to home. Parents are welcome to attend any and as many groups as they would like!

New participants should register at least 24 hours in advance of the group to ensure that their registration is approved. For more information, please contact Diane Gardner at dgardner@jfcsboston.org.

*JF&CS continues operating all parent support groups via Zoom video conferencing and expects to begin offering in-person groups the week of September 5th.
