Parenting in a Pandemic with Our Place is a private peer support Facebook group where a Peer Health Worker and a Registered Early Childhood Educator facilitate conversations, host Facebook Lives and twice-weekly Zoom gatherings, and provide content and resources in conjunction with Our Place’s Self Regulation team.
Come together to connect over Zoom and Facebook with other parents from different countries wanting to build relationships during this challenging period of physical distancing, and wanting to learn about: life in Canada, how and where to find support, and how to feel at home when you are far away from your friends and relatives – and even physically isolated from the people around you.
This virtual peer support program is geared to pregnant and postpartum mothers of infants under age 2, who are adjusting to the changes and challenges of parenthood while coping with the additional stress of postpartum life during a global pandemic. This pre-registered program will take place within a private Facebook group, and via a Zoom meeting.
This virtual peer support program for parents age 24 and under focuses on the emerging needs and challenges around parenting, self-care, and self-regulation during the pandemic. The program will offer connection, support, and resources through a weekly Zoom group session, a closed Facebook group, and Facebook Live events.
