The Parent Collective offers a revamped approach to prenatal and parenting education which is designed to provide unbiased information, foster open discussion and establish friendships among expectant parents who live local to one another and are due at the same time. Our hope is that participants taking our classes will cultivate a social network through weekly participation, forge a robust prenatal/parental support system and of course, gather playmates for the little ones on the way.
Online Prenatal Series
Our Prenatal Class Series is designed for couples (birth partners are welcome) to both learn and socialize, over the course of a four-week period. Each session is 2 hours with ample time for discussion and relationship building. Our classes are best taken in the third trimester, ideally completing before 36 weeks of pregnancy.

Online Individual Classes
Our Prenatal Classes are now online for those who are looking for education in the comfort of your own home! We are offering Labor & Delivery Prep, Breast & Bottle Feeding, and New Baby Care as well as our traditional prenatal series for those couples who would like to connect with other expectant couples to develop a support network before babies arrive. They will teach from our evidence-based curriculum and you will have the opportunity to get your questions answered.
Online New Parents Group
The Parent Collective is excited to offer a postpartum group for new parents and their babies. Come join us on Zoom for support, information and friendship! Each week we will discuss issues parents in our group are facing and offer feeding support where needed. Our facilitator, Margot Simmons, of The Daily Doula, is a trained postpartum doula, a certified breastfeeding counselor/newborn feeding specialist, a Gentle Sleep Coach and working towards becoming a RN. With her master’s degree in early childhood education and development, her own unique birth, postpartum and child-raising experiences, and the over 100 families she’s worked with, Margot supports a wide variety of families as they tackle the often-unplanned for aftermath of bringing baby home and raising young kids.
You are in good hands!
In Person Classes Paused
Our Parenting Workshops address the essentials for parents with babies and young children. We run a weekly new parents group and CPR classes and Postpartum Support Groups in most locations. And we can organize sessions on any of the topics listed below upon request.
We feel very strongly about helping couples find their community and helping to connect them in advance of their births. That said, we realize that not everyone has the time to commit to a full series. Since we strongly believe that prenatal education is crucial to a positive birth experience, we want to offer an alternative if our series doesn’t suit a couple’s busy schedule. We now offer private sessions with our team of experts – whether someone is interested in breast and bottle feeding support, labor and delivery education or hands on newborn care – we can arrange classes at a time that suits them.
