We offer many groups on our online community, including:
The HRP Mamas Mamas group - open to persons who are mothers, expectant mothers/birthing persons, identify as mothers, or as non-binary parents. This group has been active since 2004 and is a safe space for mothers to discuss the experience of motherhood and to connect with their peers.
The HRP Papas group - open to persons who are fathers, expectant fathers, identify as fathers, or as non-binary parents. This group was established in 2021 and is for advice, discussion, and meet-ups for fathers to connect with each other.
The HRP Mamas Classifieds group - open to all parents and expectant parents. The Classifieds is for buying/selling used and/or new gear, finding/recommending childcare and household help, real estate/vacation rentals, and more.
All mamas have access to subgroups by due/birth date so that they may connect in person with each other and virtually via our weekly free mother's circles, breastfeeding support groups, and guided mom support groups.
Plus many other HRP Mamas subgroups as listed here.
