I attended the pregnant parents meetings while pregnant with my second and I cannot recommend it enough! As it wasn't my first pregnancy, I was skeptical as to how much I would get out of it but I was pleasantly surprised! These meetings are unique and much more useful than the typical "preparación al parto" classes I attended when pregnant with my first. You explore topics that a new mom wouldn't have anticipated otherwise until one goes through it. Being prepared would definitely have eased the journey with my first.
Such an important service for new parents. Both pregnancy and postpartum can be challenging and lonely at times, particularly if you are an expat living far from your friends and family. Grow parents provides a safe space to share your struggles and ask for advice, as well as the chance to make friends with other parents. The organisers Laura and Amy manage to be warm and welcoming whilst at the same time maintaining a high level of professionalism. A really valuable service for parents in Madrid!
Laura and Amy are amazingly warm and friendly from the first moment you meet them. I definitely recommend this group. I took part in the May/June sessions. Not only do they provide an open and inviting atmosphere, they also provide valuable resources for new families.
Highly recommend it! I’ve had a great experience. This group was exactly what I needed during the postpartum. Laura and Amy are really professional and knowledgable. They always ask the right questions to make you reflect.
A really great opportunity to share experiences and for me to talk through things as a new mum in the first couple months of my son's life. Great to feel supported and meet people in similar situations. Also just a great chance to learn from experts about the different aspects of motherhood!
This group provided such an amazing network of support and resources for parents, whether you are a first timer or have several kids. I wish it had been around when my first child was born, but was grateful to be part of it after my second son was born. I found the topics to be really relevant, the experts knowledgeable and supportive, the ambience among group members open and honest, and the facilitators Laura & Amy were incredibly loving and encouraging. I would highly recommend Grow Parents (specifically Grow Babies in my experience) to anyone who has a little one. There may be issues you need to talk about and things you can learn about that you didn’t even realize would benefit you.
The GrowBabies postpartum meetings were fantastic! I attended when my fourth baby was 3-4months and it was helpful to meet and process emotions with other new moms. Each postpartum experience is unique and I really appreciated having this facilitated space. The experts and Laura and Amy all had great insights and helped me understand my own needs and feelings. Thanks for curating this fabulous and very needed space for new and expecting parents.
We cannot solve the problems by using the same thinking we used when we created them

There are no failures - just experiences and your reactions to them.
I always like to look on the optimistic side of life, but I am realistic enough to know that life is a complex matter.
