WHO WE ARE

INDIVIDUALIZED SUPPORT & RESOURCES FOR NEW AND EXPECTING FAMILIES!

Becoming a parent is a transformative and exciting time with lots in store. Having good support along the way is essential to overcoming the challenges something so new can bring. The Marks JCH initiative is aimed at providing supportive, nurturing and focused care to brand new families during the sensitive prenatal and postpartum stages of parenthood. Adoptive families, queer families and families of all backgrounds are encouraged to participate in our programs!

The program will offer a variety of workshops and in-home services for new families including but not limited to:

  • Access to expert consultants including social workers, lactation specialists, childbirth educators, clinicians and doulas
  • Reduction of isolation through new parent and infant groups and peer support workshops
  • New parent resources and supportive interventions such as infant feeding classes, infant movement, and development classes, postpartum mental health resources, prenatal swim and more
  • Jewish family engagement opportunities for families with infants
