About Jewish Baby Network

Jewish Baby Network is creating a pluralistic community in the SF Bay Area where families of all kinds learn, share, and celebrate together. Jewish Baby Network is for Bay Area expecting parents and families with at least one child age newborn through thirty-six months. Siblings are always welcome at our events.

While pregnancy, birth and babies can bring moments of awe and celebration, there are also times when parents to-be and new parents feel anxious, exhausted and alone. Jewish Baby Network is here to connect new families to each other and the larger Jewish community, and to provide resources and education on how to bring the beauty of Judaism into a new family’s life.

Jewish Baby Network welcomes everyone, including unaffiliated, single and multi parent, multi faith, multi ethnic, multi abled, and LGBTQ families.

Jewish Baby Network is a program of the Center for Children and Youth, a division of Jewish Family and Children’s Services. The Center for Children and Youth offers comprehensive parenting support from birth through young adulthood, guided by our Jewish values. We help pregnant and new families with breastfeeding, baby care, education, and parenting guidance. Learn more about our Babies and Beyond program.
