Welcome to First Year Circle (FYC)! An open and welcoming group where parents with new babies can connect, support one another, and navigate this challenging yet special time together!

Each week will welcome a new discussion topic relevant to pregnancy, postpartum care, parenting, infant health, and more!

Come relax in a quiet, safe space where your parenting choices are both respected and celebrated!

Expectant mothers are always welcome! Supervised play is provided (for children under 6) in the adjoining playroom for a donation of your choosing.
