New Moms

Welcome to motherhood! It’s a joyful, challenging, sleep-deprived time, and NPN is here to help you through it. Looking for support? New Moms Groups give you the opportunity to meet in small groups of 8–10 moms who live in your area and have babies around the same age. Check our calendar to sign up for an upcoming New Moms Group!

 

New moms can also watch videos on topics such as infant sleep and postpartum depression, and seek advice and support on our member discussion forum. Trying to find a nanny? Our Childcare Classifieds can connect you with a parent-recommended caregiver or a nanny share family.
