With You Every Step of the Way

Helping Each Other through Parenthood

Whether you are preparing to welcome your new little one or bringing your newborn home after birth, you learn there are many aspects of parenthood you have questions about. It’s very natural to have questions, fears, doubts, and concerns arise. The Parent Network is here to help bring parents together in a safe space to support one another through this new life event.

During these sessions, expecting and new parents can broach the subjects no one talks about. Everyone is encouraged to talk about experiences and help gain new knowledge on those aspects of parenthood they might be struggling with. Some examples may be colic/fussy baby, the transition from maternity leave to work, starting solid foods, the healing process during postpartum, and many more. At Myrtue, we believe in taking an active part in your family’s well-being, and we are here to help you through this new life journey.
