  •  This free, weekly support group, sponsored by the Center for Early Relationship Support of JF&CS, is open to new parents and babies (birth to one year old) of all faiths and races. Registration is NOT required.
  • New parents benefit greatly from interacting and connecting with other parents in their community. Our groups, which are facilitated by trained and supervised leaders, provide an accessible and comfortable place for parents and their babies to come together.

I see this group is really geared for the newborn to 12 month crowd. I'm new in the area and would like to meet other local moms but my son just turned 12 months old. Are there any groups in Watertown for that age group?

Thank you for your interest Stephanie. Yes, our groups are intended for parents in the first year of their baby's life. Feel free to attend our group tomorrow though if you wish and you can ask the other moms in the group for ideas of other resources for moving forward. Also, the Watertown Family Network where our group takes place will also be a great resource for you and your family!

Hi - Im a brand new mom, my daughter is just over 2 weeks old. Id love to get out of the house and meet some other new moms, as this is all a bit overwhelming, but with the flu and stuff going around, im concerned about taking her out in public/groups of people. Any thoughts or advice about coming to this group?

Thanks for writing, Christina, and I can certainly appreciate your anxiety given the flu and other illnesses. Our group leaders encourage parents not to attend group if they or their baby is sick. Some choose to hold or wear their baby during group to keep her close. Information about our full array of programs is at www.jfcsboston.org/CERS. Our whole mission is to support new parents because yes, it can be overwhelming. Thanks again.
