EMBRACING PARENTING

Weekly Parenting Conversations

Our virtual groups offer bite-sized parenting support from birth through preschool ages - this is the heart of our Nest. A safe space to share and process the transformation called parenthood. They're offered as part of our monthly membership.

These gatherings are hosted by Katie DaMota of Embracing Parenting (our original founder). Katie is a lactation consultant, mother, early parenthood mentor and one of your biggest advocates. She's been caring for babies since she was a baby herself in the 80's - babies and toddlers are her favorite people. 

 

In addition to access to all of the ongoing gatherings listed below, your monthly membership includes the following:

  • Infant classes: Starting Solid Foods and Infant Sleep

  • Discounts on other participating classes and half off on play groups

  • Access to our lending library

  • Join LIVE conversations with our experts 

  • Community Picnics for local families

  • Quarterly Book Club meet-ups

 Our groups are designed to help you sift through parenting decisions and learn about various parenting approaches. Most of all, we are here to listen to your stories and connect you with other parents. For the most part, we're considering responsive, respectful, and conscious parenting approaches together. That said, we also always acknowledge the self-compassion and grace required to parent with greater intention. We welcome your unique experience.

 

Once you subscribe, you'll have access to the Zoom links for ALL groups and the WhatsApp private chat group link to join the conversations and in-person opportunities for those interested. You're always welcome to join audio only from anywhere. Babies and children are welcome to be with you; however, these are not conversations centered for children to necessarily participate (although we all love baby smiles and toddler shares). This is time to set aside for you to be supported by other parents.

Kid Playing with Wooden Toys

Toddlers +

Meet Mondays at 2:00

We'll talk all about the emerging child's joys and challenges: picky eaters, breastfeeding/weaning, sleep, tantrums, aggression, and more. Toddlers are full of budding emotions, new skills, and independence. Keeping up with their changes with developmentally appropriate responses can be a challenge, let's make some space to explore together. You're not alone!
