<p>I have recently moved back to Santa Cruz after being gone for far too long.  I have a 4-year-old son and another on the way...I would love to find a playgroup in the area that has kids around my son's age.  Does anyone know of any? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Or if there are any moms in the area who would like to get together for playdates, that would be awesome, too <span><img alt="winky.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/winky.gif">  I'm a down-to-earth, passionate soul who loves yoga, nature, meditating, writing and the ocean (of course)</span> <span><img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif"></span></p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>Thanks in advance!</span></p>

<p>And it says you are due in Late Februrary on your signature (if that's still accurate and not from THIS last late Feburary, congratulations!) I would recommend Dominican Hospital's Breastfeeding Support Group for after your baby is born. I sat in on it when I was a doula-in-training and it was basically a place where women would breastfeed together and talk about the joys and challenges of motherhood. I know, when I become a mom (someday in the distant future) I will want to join. The woman who runs it, Janet Hoover, is amazing! Past midwife and now a lactation consultant.</p>

<p>Welcome to Santa Cruz! :)</p>
