Our Support Program for New Parents

Parents and newborns attending The Parent Connection's New Parents Group. Photo taken PRE-COVID. Ask anyone who has children what it's like to be a parent, and you are likely to get a full range of responses that typically boil down to "it's the most wonderful, challenging and life-changing experience you can imagine." It's often difficult to adequately articulate exactly what that means, and even harder to comprehend, until you are living it.

The Parent Connection is BIDMC's free service offering support groups and mentoring for new parents. To learn more about The Parent Connection, you can email Christine Sweeney, LICSW, call 617-667-BABY (2229) or watch our video below. Also, check out our Baby Know How blog.
