Parenthood drop-in
Wednesday mornings from 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

Welcome to the parenthood! Do you have a baby and perhaps crave the long-lost art of chatting with other adults? Do you want to find some parent-friends? Fear not! Two Doulas is partnering with Temple to offer a weekly drop-in for coffee, cookies, and company with your babies. A member of the Two Doulas team will be there each week to host, answer your questions, and snuggle your babies when you need a bathroom break (or when you just want to use both arms). This drop-in is open to all parents and guardians of children 1 year-old and under.

The group is free with a suggested donation to help keep the cookies, tea, and coffee flowing. We can’t wait to see you.
