What we're about

Hello, parents and parents-to-be in Hudson County, NJ (Jersey City, Hoboken, Bayonne, Kearny, Secaucus, etc.)

Would you like to:

* Meet with like-minded parents and fellow community members

* Build social and health connections

* Establish a supportive Community & Discussion Group

* Nourish and expand your parenting options

* Continue your personal growth to enable you to be the best parent you can be

There are several fantastic play groups in Hoboken, which provide a very valuable resource for parents in town.

But, where can you go to discuss the questions that arise each and every day regarding raising your child?

The Hoboken Holistic Parenting and Family Wellness Group provides a safe and supportive environment, where we can come together to ask questions, share parenting techniques and stories, and discuss timely and relevant family wellness issues.

Topics will be largely determined by the Group, but will include:

* Birth and pregnancy

* Compassionate parenting

* The science of wellness, nutrition - including gluten-free, whole foods and seasonal recipes

* Child development & educational reform

* Coping with children's allergies and food sensitivities

* Helping your child deal with change

* The vaccination controversy

* Consciousness and the MotherBaby bond

* Psychiatric drugs and your children

* Tending the garden of your child's mind

* Creating healthy babies

* Breast feeding and your kids

* Midwifery v. hospital births

* Tips on starting a community garden

We believe stepping onto our personal pathway to wellness is a consciousness-raising act with the power to regenerate and transform ourselves, our families, our communities and our world.

We look forward to building this Community with you.
