Parenting Groups

As part of the philosophy of helping parents to have both the information and the support they need, Ryan Lowe runs a number of parenting groups. These groups are specific to various age groups and are run weekly for six weeks. The group then continues to meet as a peer support group on a once monthly basis.

Pre-Natal Parenting Group

The Group runs for six weeks, guided by Ryan Lowe. Each week focuses on a different aspect of childhood, parenting, child-development, attachment and bonding. The evening will usually start with information and discussion on the topics and will end with a space for parents to discuss their own feelings, thoughts, fears and ideas. The beginning of the evening aims to give parents a framework of information and understanding in which to develop their parenting ideas. The discussion portion of the evening aims to provide support to parents and allow a space for a depth of thinking about both the practical and the emotional journey toward parenthood.
