UPDATE 2022: the free Expecting and New Support Group, which was meeting online through spring 2021, is currently on hiatus.


Thanks to the generosity of the wonderful staff of the Leonard Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library, I facilitate a FREE support group for expecting and new parents each Thursday (excepting holidays on which the library is closed) from 12:30pm until 1:30 or 2pm.

This is a great way to meet other parents, make "tummy time" more interesting for a newborn, strategize about sleep or feeding with a lactation counselor and your peers, or just get a break from the "cabin fever" you may be feeling at home with a little one.

Is your baby not yet born? Expectant parents are always invited to join in, whether birth parents, adopting, or otherwise. Older siblings are also welcome, especially if that makes it easier for new or expecting parents to attend.

Attendees are asked to arrive between 12:30pm and 1:30pm.

The Leonard branch location is in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, near the L and G subway stop at Lorimer/Metropolitan and near several bus lines, including the B43.
