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? NPN's New Moms Group gives you the opportunity to meet weekly with moms who have babies around the same age. We meet every Wednesday from 12:15pm - 1:00pm over Zoom. Check our calendar to sign up for the next one! We encourage you to attend weekly, or as often as your schedule allows.

 

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. 

 

New! Check out our All About Baby directory to find a Chicago pediatrician, lactation consultants and childcare options.
