The Baby Bunch: a new parent support group

The Hawthorn Pediatrics Department is now offering new parents an opportunity to meet other new parents and discuss how to ease the transition into this new role, enhance knowledge and confidence as a new parent, and develop friendships. The group is led by a pediatric nurse and is held every Wednesday from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at 531 Faunce Corner Road, second floor waiting room B. Parents can stop in at any time.
