Hey all! I am moving to Westfield from MI, where there's been a really great AP community. So what's happening in Massachusetts? Do you have any suggestions for how I can meet some like-minded people? Thanks in advance!

Welcome to Western Mass!  Northampton is generally suggested as the most AP friendly town in this area.  I know that Cradle in Northampton runs a baby-wearing group, breastfeeding groups, and is an easy place to meet other young families etc. 

 

I know a hand full of families that live in Westfield and love it there.  A family center just opened, they have a fabulous children's library, the Amelia Parks Children's Museum and Stanley Park.  I don't think most people think of Westfield as being a crunchy town but it is definitely family friendly.

Do you know where the family center is / what it's called? I was looking for one in Westfield, but I could only find them in the Northampton/Amherst area. And thanks for all of your advice!

I don't know the official name of the family center but I think it is located at the First Congregation Church on the Green.  It just opened a few months ago, so I'm thinking there isn't a website yet.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions about the area.  I'd be happy to help!
