As an Expecting Parent, there's lots to love at the Love Child Collective!
What is Love Child Collective?
A gathering space for expecting and new parents in the West Village.
Your home away from home, your village in the Village, a haven to connect with your family, friends and neighbors.
A place for you to co-work, co-play, and use at your leisure – for you to take advantage of informative workshops to help you navigate pre-conception, pregnancy, postpartum and new parenthood.
For parents, we offer creative classes to inspire your kids; while they play, you can catch up with a friend, get some of your own work done or take the opportunity to eat with both hands! We also offer on-site babysitting so you can take a yoga class and enjoy some time for yourself!
June 6th - July 18th (No class on July 4th)
You've probably been told by friends or family to join a prenatal or parent group. Love Child can help - with Prenatal and New Parent groups right in the Collective space, you'll be able to connect with people facing the same challenges you are. A one hour Prenatal Yoga class focused on a specific part of the body will be followed by a half hour discussion to answer questions and connect with one another.
