The transition to Fatherhood can be one of the most significant events a person can go through. This New Dads Group, intended for any dad that has a infant up to one year old or younger.
We create a space for men to come together and share the joys as well as the struggles that fatherhood has to offer. We explore the anxieties and complexities of navigating the changes in ourselves, as well as our primary relationships with are partners, family, friendships, and work life.
The second goal is to create a space where men can explore shifts in identity and what it means to be a father, personally and within larger community and culture. We accomplish this through exploring our own experiences with the fathers and father figures in our lives, as well as our changing role in our own growing families.
We encourage you to come with your pre-crawling babies if you like, just like new moms do in new moms groups!
This group is appropriate for all dads, regardless of sexual identity. Female partners who identify as female may find support community through Meghan Lewis, PhD or Our Family Coalition.
