Motherhood. Many of us dream of it, but our lives are forever changed once it happens. Whether it is your first time or your fourth, becoming a mom is exciting, joyous, and nerve-wracking. Any mom can feel overwhelmed between pregnancy food cravings, mood swings, finding the best gear, and more. Then once the baby comes, so many decisions must be made. Will you breastfeed or bottle-feed? Will you co-sleep? Will you need all those onesies? Fairfield County Mom has compiled a guide featuring the best pregnancy, infancy, and postpartum resources. We want to provide you with information so you can relax and enjoy that pregnancy glow and those new baby snuggles without the stress (and maybe even get some sleep). Just know that you aren’t alone on this crazy journey. As always, please support our sponsors!

THE PARENT COLLECTIVE
The Parent Collective seeks to equip expectant parents and mothers with the education and support they need to thrive during parenthood. They offer prenatal education, new mother and working mother support groups, and motherhood coaching. Each Prenatal Education class is designed to support mothers and fathers through the various transitions of parenthood. Whether you’re looking for guidance regarding delivery preparation, new baby care, and everything in between, they’ve got you covered. Their team of facilitators are trained experts who are passionate about imparting their knowledge as both practitioners and parents to those in need of support. The Parent Collective offers New Mom Groups that aim to be a non-judgmental space for mothers to build connections with others in the same stage of life, validate how the transition to motherhood isn’t always smooth sailing, and share resources with one another in a safe, supportive environment. And finally, as a Certified Motherhood Coach and Fair Play Facilitator, their founder helps women through the many transitions of parenthood and the identity shifts and stresses accompanying them. Central to this work is helping mothers to craft strategies for managing overwhelm and remaining connected to who they are outside of their roles as a parent, partner, or professional.
