Prouty Parent-Baby Group

Prouty Parent-Baby Group is the new New Beginnings!

There will be no gathering the first week of September. Prouty Parent-Baby Group resumes at it’s new date/time on Tuesday, September 12th at 2:00pm.

The group meets weekly on Tuesday from 2:00-3:30pm in the tent in front of Holton Hall (inside Thomas Hall on rainy days).

Come back soon for upcoming topics!

Prouty Parent-Baby group is a way to connect and to learn from and lean on each other while parenting a new child. Each week, we focus on a topic to support your life as a parent. You can swap best practices with fellow parents in the area and get answers to your questions from our maternal child health and lactation professionals.  

Babes in arms and young children are welcome! 

Discussions are facilitated by the Winston Prouty Center for Child and Family Development’s maternal child health nurses Sally Pennington, RNC, IBCLC; Autumn Blais, RN, PNP; and Emma Schneider, RN.

Group Guidelines

Prouty Parent-Baby Group is a place to connect, learn, and lean on each other for support. You will hear a range of ideas and possibilities on various topics. Take what works for you. You know yourself and your baby best. We kindly ask that everyone have a chance to speak without interruption. If you have some good advice to offer, please ask first if this is what they want. Sometimes being seen and heard with compassion and understanding is just what they need, what we all need.
