We’ve added three groups since the beginning of the year! The following information about these groups can be found on our web page under BBC Support Groups for Moms and Dads here.
This group is for anyone identifying as a parent and meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month. If you are on Facebook, click here to say you are attending or to share the event.

(OLDER CHILDREN WELCOME)

We’re excited to welcome you to a, BBC hosted, parent circle in St. Johns! Parents from all walks of life are welcome to join us as we gather together to share our experiences, heartaches, joys, trials, and more. This will be an open group in that parents and kids are welcome. The entrance to the Swapnplay is off of Leonard St. with plenty of on-street parking. There’s a double door with a doorbell to the right of it. Ring when you arrive and someone will let you in.
_____________________________________________________________________________This group is for moms also meets Sunday, which can be a great time of the week to take some time for yourself, if you are able, of course. It meets on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month which may change in the fall/winter when the weather turns. If you are on Facebook, click here to say you are attending or to share the event.
NE NIGHT-TIME GROUP- STARTING JUNE 2ND!
- Meeting time: every 1st and 3rd Sunday 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
- Meeting place: Ready Set Grow (5433 NE 30th Ave, Portland, OR 97218)
Come join us and share with other mothers in the journey of parenting from prenatal and beyond. We hold space for one another and offer support whether it’s discussing pregnancy, nursing, birth, adoption, postpartum, or navigating extended family and careers. All in a beautiful, calm movement studio free of every day distractions. This evening group is meant for adults but babies in arms (under 1 year) are welcome.
This weekly online option is GREAT when you can’t or don’t want to leave the house. We call it our ‘come as you are’ group, but that honestly applies to all our groups! If you are on Facebook, click here to say you are attending or to share the event.
ONLINE GROUP- DAY-TIME
- Meeting time: every Sunday 12:00 pm- 1 pm
- To join: https://zoom.us/j/282499455
This group is online and uses Zoom. Please create a Zoom account prior to logging on. Because it is online and only lasts an hour, we may limit the number of moms who can access the meeting to ensure that everyone has time to share. This group is perfect for moms who cannot attend any of our in person groups, for whatever reason.
Sadly, our Thursday evening group at Zenana Spa and Wellness Center is no longer meeting. We believe we’ve secured another location, fingers crossed! And can make an announcement with details when it’s up and running!
All of our groups are free, supportive and confidential. You do not need to check in with us prior to attending, unless you prefer to do so. If you would like to talk with a facilitator to connect, learn about the group setting, talk anything our before hand, you can connect with us in a variety of ways. Send a PM on our main FB page here. Send us an email at info at baby blues connection dot org. Or give us a call, toll-free at 1-800-557-8375.
