As a New Parent, there's a lot to love about 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! 

New Parent Circle

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. In guided discussions, expecting parents will talk about such things as Navigating Pregnancy at Work, Self Care & Prenatal Resources, and Addressing Birth Fears. New parents will share their experiences with things like the First 6 Weeks, Career and Identity, and Relationships and Intimacy. And enjoy fresh healthy salads from Green Top Farms!

Breastfeeding Support Group

You can see all the Collective offering for New Parents here but the ones you won't want to miss in your first few weeks postpartum is our Breastfeeding Support Group. Breastfeeding is a choice and sometimes can be a challenging journey. Join other new parents going through the same experience and get professional help to address any issues that may arise. 

Baby Massage & Movement

Tips and techniques to help soothe your baby through massage and movement.  

Access to In-Studio babysitting 

Hello Sitter is shaking up the world of childcare with their highly rated CPR-certified and background-checked band of sitters. They're working with Love Child to provide their first-class childcare right in the space - so you can relax, eat with both hands, or simply visit the bathroom alone (!). Hello Sitter - hello peace of mind. Cost of sitting services will be set by and arranged with Hello Sitter. 

Kids Art / Music / Storytelling Classes

Bring baby or child to join other little ones in our fun selection of classes. Expect guest teachers to lead your under-5s through art classes, music sessions, or storytime in the Collective space. We plan to attract the best talent and would like to compensate our teachers well. Members will get a few free classes and discounted rates. Starts late Feb /early March.

Co-working Space

If you work from home and want to spend a little time working in our space with wifi and on-site childcare, our doors are open. Limited availability.

Schedule Play Dates

Playdates are fun for kids - and parents, too! Bring your little one along to a scheduled playdate and meet other parents - or take a breather in the space.

Open Play Hours

Want to host a playdate without opening up your apartment? Or perhaps you just want a new space for your little one to toddle or crawl around while you sip your coffee or chat to another mom or dad... Open Play Hours give you the flexibility to do just that, in the heart of the West Village.

Support & Resources from Love Child Team

Neelu and team are dedicated to helping trying, expecting and new parents in their respective journeys. With a raft of experts on hand, you will have a smart support network at your fingertips
