Year One Program
Often the most difficult and exciting time in your journey as a parent of multiples is the first year. In order to provide the educational and emotional support new families of multiples so often need, SFOM has created a program exclusively for new and expectant parents of multiples. The Year One program is offered free of charge to members, as well as prospective members of SFOM who wish to learn more about club before joining.
Monthly meetings occur on a Saturday morning, September – June, and include a variety of speakers to discuss topics and questions that frequently arise during pregnancy and as you get to know your new babies. The Year One program provides a non-judgmental environment in which you are free to arrive late, leave early, come in your pajamas, feed/breastfeed, tend to fussy babies, ask difficult questions or just listen to the tried-and-true advice of your fellow parents of multiples and local parenting experts. We also hope that you will meet and form friendships with other parents.
