My partner and I moved to Monterey two years ago and have had a hard time making friends outside of work. Now we're on the verge of having a baby (due on October 24th) and are hoping to find other gay or gay-friendly families in Monterey with babies or children. 


We're working with a great midwife, and have found friendly people at Chatter Baux (baby/kid consignment store in PG) and Baby Moon (lactation support center), but just don't know many other PARENTS. 


Of course, we'd love advice about childcare options, pediatricians, resources, but also just looking for community and friendship. 


Any friendly words from local moms or suggestions about local parent groups would be greatly appreciated!

Strongly suggest that you contact Parents Place in Pacific Grove.  (  I'm at the end of the parenting journey, but could not have done it without a support group of friends and family.  Your instincts to find other people at the beginning of the parenting journey are right on!
