Join us for free parenting talks. Go beyond the basics, and understand your baby and this beautiful yet challenging time at a different level. Each month, we’ll cover a different topic: how to set up your home for baby, how to support natural language development and movement, how dads can be optimally involved during pregnancy and the bonding period. Leave empowered to truly savor the first critical months with your baby, and to help her truly flourish.
