Program is meant for parents (mother or father) on maternity leave and is already suitable even for babies that are few weeks old. In the space of meeting parents can find a comfortable place for them and their child. Space is prepared for babies to move, rest or play and when everyone is settled in, a relaxed conversations begins about a spceific topic. This gives parents an opportunity to learn more about specific topic and it is a safe place to share their fears, challenges or successes.
