Our Support Program for New Parents
At BIDMC, we offer our patients a continuum of care, starting from pre-conception and continuing through post-delivery (after you leave the hospital with your baby and are home adjusting to your new life as parents).
Ask anyone who has children what it's like to be a parent, and you are likely to get a full range of responses that typically boil down to "it's
the most wonderful, challenging and life changing experience you can imagine." It's often difficult to adequately articulate exactly what that means, and even harder to comprehend, until you are living it.
The Parent Connection is our free service offering new parents groups and mentoring parents services. To learn more about The Parent Connection, you can email Christine Sweeney, LICSW or call 617-667-BABY (2229) or watch our video below. Also, check out our Baby Know How blog.
