Here are LGBTQ2S+ Books for Children Birth to 6 Years

We’ve put together a list of books celebrating LGBTQ2S+ children and families! These books are perfect for children with queer parents/caregivers to see families like theirs, for children to see themselves and their peers, and for everyone to learn about and celebrate all families and genders. Here are 15 beautiful LGBTQ2S+ books for you and your little one to enjoy.

We hope you enjoy these stories as much as we do!

Postpartum Mood Disorder Peer Support Group

If you are a mom who is experiencing difficulties adjusting to life with a new baby or is coping with Postpartum Mood Disorder (PPMD), support is available.

It’s not easy to reach out for support – we’re so glad you’re here.

Our PPMD Peer Support Group is a judgement-free space where you can talk about how you feel or just sit and listen to others. Childcare is provided in the centre during the program; you are also welcome to bring your baby with you into the group.

If you can’t make it right at the start of the group – that’s ok! Join when you can. If you would like to talk to a group facilitator before you attend, email us at [email protected] and a facilitator will get in touch with you.
