Baby, Let's Talk

Join an online community for new and expecting parents who are navigating parenthood during the Covid-19 pandemic!

A new baby should be reason to celebrate, but fears around COVID-19 have managed to dampen even that joyous milestone. Should you take your newborn out of the house at all? What do you say when relatives want to come see the tiny newcomer?

Topics like these will be discussed during "Baby, Let's Talk,” which begins tomorrow and will run Tuesdays at 1 pm! This event is free and open to all expectant and new parents in 2021- whether they are biological, foster, adoptive or surrogate. The theme, loosely centered on new and expectant parents, will cover topics ranging from changing birth expectations to setting boundaries with family and isolation.


This training is offered online. March 2, 2021 from 1:00-2:00pm; Every Tuesday

How’s That Working for You… The Trauma Presentation To End All Trauma Presentations

Join us for a frank (and funny!) discussion about the realities of unmitigated secondary stress in First Responders. Learn how to realistically survive the inevitable effects of secondary stress, and how to manage stress in a healthy, productive way (including that sense of humor).

Our presenter, Cassie Skalicky, has been part of a law enforcement and military family for over 20 years, and has worked in a Child Advocacy Center, with at-risk children and in neonatal hospice. She knows more about trauma than she’d like to.
