About The Nest

Our mission is to continue educating local families with the most current information about birth and parenting. We are committed to making prenatal preparation, breastfeeding education and postpartum support enjoyable and widely accessible. Over 300 families benefit from The Nest each year. In the coming year we plan to broaden our programs that support families suffering from the effects of postpartum depression which has been identified by the Nevada County Public Health Department as one of the priorities for helping Nevada County mothers.

Local parents can establish community and gain resources in our free & low cost groups for parents including a prenatal support group, 2 postnatal support groups, a walking/fitness group in addition to other fit classes focusing on new moms.
