Groups

Becoming a parent is a unique time of growth and development, as a person and as a family. Birth Roots offers a few groups where families can find some extra support, guidance and encouragement, right when they need it most.

Welcoming Pregnancy

It’s hard to know where to start when you find out you are expecting a baby. This class will set your mind at ease and connect you with other new families and a whole new world of community resources and support. Touch on all the topics that are important to first and second trimester families and begin to settle those “what I don’t know I don’t know” jitters. One Friday a month from 5:30-7, $10. Pre-register here.

Eat, Sleep, Feed

Free drop-in group for parents experiencing more feeding or sleep challenges than anticipated. An experienced facilitator will help you work through the challenges, define your goals and access resources in a supportive, judgment-free group. Join us Mondays, 10:30-12. No pre-registration is needed.  (Birth Roots is closed for holidays and when Portland schools are closed for inclement weather)

The Nest

A free, unfacilitated drop-in group in a very baby-friendly space where new families can enjoy each other’s company, find fresh ideas and the fellowship of others who are in the thick of it with you. Join us Monday-Thursday, 12-2. No pre-registration is needed.  (Birth Roots is closed for holidays and when Portland schools are closed for inclement weather)
