Playgroup

An integral part of our mission is to connect you to each other and your communities. Motherhood should not be walked alone. Pack a snack or lunch and join us at 10:30am as we connect with one another. Your littles can play on a safe, gated playground and you can sit under the pavilion and catch up with friends or meet some new ones.

Children of ALL ages are welcome, even if they're too young to play on the playground! Bring a friend, pack a lunch, and join this collective group of beautiful women.

Visit our facebook page or contact: playgroup@themotherhoodcollective.org with questions on location.

The Motherhood Café: Understanding Miscarriage : Causes, Symptoms, Treatments and Finding Support

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. Roughly 15 to 20 percent of all pregnancies in the United States end in miscarriage. Even with these large numbers, often parents feel isolated after pregnancy loss. We'll cover the basics -- common terminology, options for care, and possible troubles women face afterwards. It will be a morning of education, support, reassurance and healing conversation.

Due to insurance reasons, children over 1 are not allowed in the building. Childcare registration, for ages 1-4 is FREE of charge and available below. Childcare slots are limited and registration is on a first come first serve basis.

Childcare registrations can be made by emailing: childcare@themotherhoodcollective.org
