Event Details

Have a new baby? It’s hard, isn’t it?  Thurston County offers a free Parenting & Postpartum Support Group designed to support families who are navigating the highs and lows of pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting infants. The group meets at Thurston County Public Health and Social Services  in Olympia the first Thursday of the month from 10-11:30am (next is May 2nd, 2024) and the third Thursday of the month 5:30-7pm (next is April 18th).

This support group strives to provide a non-judgmental space to explore with families how they are feeling and doing. It is a wonderful place to get connected with other parents and experienced facilitators while navigating this journey into parenthood. The group offers parents a place to think about and process their experiences as new parents. Some topics of discussion include the impact of changes to identity, changes in our relationships with partner and others, the real impact of sleep deprivation, feelings around the birth experience, and differences between expectations and the reality of the perinatal period. This group is open to all parents in the period of pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting infants.
