Baby Café: COVID-19 Safety Precautions

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved our Baby Café to a virtual setting. This free virtual postpartum support group will be staffed by Certified Lactation Counselors. This postpartum group will be available for drop ins on Wednesday mornings from 10:30AM – 11:30PM on Zoom.

Please register ahead of time so that we can prioritize the safety and security of all who participate.

Debido a la pandemia de COVID-19, hemos cambiado nuestro Baby Café a un grupo virtual. Este grupo de apoyo postparto tiene asesores certificados en lactancia. Este grupo estará disponible para visitas los miércoles por la mañana de 10:30 hasta 11:30 por Zoom.

Por favor, regístrese antes del grupo para que podamos priorizar la seguridad de todos participantes.

Hours & Location

Our Baby Café is located at the Southern Jamaica Plain Health Center in the Health Promotion Center (Entry on Green Street, next door to the JP Animal Clinic).

Baby Café is held Wednesday mornings from 9:30am – 11:30am. The group is drop-in, so no need to make an appointment. Drop by for 20 minutes or stay as long as you’d like!
