Budding Bonds (0-3 months): Brookline

                                     Budding Bonds: New Moms Group (0 - 3months)


- Meet a group of other moms in your area
- Talk, listen, laugh, bond

Mommybites Boston is proud to offer Boston-area moms support groups launched in NYC in 2008!

In our new moms groups, each week you’ll share experiences, engage in parenting discussions, gather valuable resources, and ask your parenting questions on order to make this time of major transition smoother, saner, easier and more enjoyable!

After these warm, informative, and friendly sessions, you’ll be fully connected to a great group of other trusted moms and feel empowered with essential skills such as dealing with sleep deprivation and overcoming the challenges of feeding & fussiness.

Mommybites' support groups are led by facilitators who will guide you to embrace your new role & identity as a mom with more confidence, compassion and humor.

-When: Six Mondays 4/20-5/25 

-Time: 11:15am-12:45pm 
-Where: Puppet Showplace Theater, Brookline
-Fee: $170

Led by Katherin Hudkins, former Isis Instructor Founder of Seedlings: Katherin has been studying childbirth since her first year at Smith College, where she received her BA in Anthropology with a focus in the Anthropology of Reproduction. Katherin has over a decade of extensive childcare experience, worked as a birth doula in Ecuador and Massachusetts, and spent a summer as a traditional midwife’s apprentice in Guatemala. Her passion for emotional support of expecting and new parents brought her to Isis Parenting in June of 2010, where she worked as an assistant center manager and a staff trainer. Her natural gift with moms and babies drew her into the field of postpartum support as a doula and Isis facilitator of new moms groups. Her teaching style is warm, upbeat, and positive, and informed by her cross-cultural and evolutionary studies of childbirth and parenting. 

What if I have to miss a session?
Life happens (especially as a new mom!) Do what you can to make it each week, but know that the program is valuable even if you have to miss some sessions. We don't prorate our support groups for missed sessions as it's really about getting 6 weeks of support & resources (vs 6 sessions). One of the best parts? Developing friendships with so many supportive moms.


What Mommybites Moms are Saying:

Becoming a new mom was the most exhilarating, exhausting, and intense journey I'd ever experienced. What I found I needed most was a sense of community, which is what this group offers. Meeting up, learning from, and laughing with other new mothers helps turn an uncertain and potentially scary time into a shared adventure...

The New Mom's Support Group for babies is a fun and easy way to bond with other moms. The focus is really on the mom, which is so unique in the vast universe of mommy and me classes in NYC...

I enjoyed taking part in the support group. It is great to be with moms and their little ones born around the same time as my daughter. We shared and learned a lot from each other, but the best thing is that we made friends!

Creating a Climate of Patient Safety

 

“Creating a Climate of Patient Safety”

 

Across the globe, leaders of health systems and healthcare organizations have been working tirelessly to reduce adverse outcomes for patients.  Policies and reimbursement models have evolved, hospital protocols have been implemented, and technologies have been leveraged.  Despite these advances, many cultural barriers to patient safety remain in our healthcare system.  In our own country, there have been national news stories about caregivers who raise concerns surrounding patient safety being marginalized or even fired.

All of this leads to some compelling questions: what do leaders of healthcare organizations need to do to create a culture of patient safety in their organizations?  Are new technologies part of the solution?  Is public reporting or “pay for performance” related to patient safety part of the solution or does it just create more cultural problems?

To tackle these questions, BYHP is excited to partner with the International Society for Quality in Health Care (ISQUA) in presenting “Creating a Climate of Patient Safety.”  Come join our international panel of healthcare quality and patient safety experts, hailing both from across town and around the globe, to discuss the critical issue of patient safety and what it means for evolving healthcare systems across the globe today.

Boston Jewish Food Conference

Brought to you by


With 200 people, our conference will foster new dynamics and connections within the Jewish community by utilizing food and farming to discuss the intersections of justice, sustainability, and culture against a background of Jewish traditions and contemporary life.

  • 1:00-5:30 Multiple workshop sessions, including in the kitchen and classroom
  • 5:30-7:00 Community Shuk (marektplace) featuring Do-It-Yourself sessions, cooking demonstrations, advocacy opportunities and tabling by community agencies and organizations.


Our workshops will explore the many factors that impact what we eat: individual choices, congregational and community affiliations, and the development of public policies. In particular, we are eager to explore the interplay between the variables at each of these levels so that we can understand the basic foundation of our diets.  Our Jewish identities and values are similarly influenced by factors at multiple levels: the Jewish community groups that exist where we live, or the interpersonal relationships we form with Jewish and non-Jewish individuals. Our identities influence how we choose to consume particular foods, based on environmental impact, rabbinic supervision, cultural tradition, and/or public policies. 

We seek to recognize that the foods we eat are not always a product of free choice; constraints like economic and social inequalities prevent many people from having the freedom to make food choices. As Jewish food consumers, we hope to engage with these issues and learn where we can fit in to the work being done to create a more just and equitable food system.

Shabbat B’yachad - March 6th

Shabbat B’yachad (Shabbat Together) is a community worship service and dinner bringing together our entire TOS family every month. A satisfying dinner for both children and adults follows Tot Shabbat after which we join for services featuring Ansin Religious School students and our Shabbat Band led by David Sparr. Mahkelah Youth Choir and the Adult Choir often add their voices in songful prayer.

As part of our Mussar learning, March’s Shabbat B’yachad will feature not one, but two grades presenting on two different attributes. Grade three will present on the attribute of KAVOD/Honor and grade six will present on the attribute of SH’TIKAH/Silence and Thoughtful Speech. 

We will also enjoy a visit from the Rashi dance team during dinner. A real treat!

Evening draws to a close chatting over coffee and dessert with old and new friends. A wonderful way to catch your breath and start a stress free weekend. Relax! It’s Shabbat.
