Mission: To Change the culture of parenting so no one has to do it alone
Vision:All families are embraced by their communities in their transition to parenthood.
We are an organization of families, health professionals, educators and local businesses that honors, supports and empowers all families of Arizona during their transition to parenthood and beyond. We do this through the production of community events, such as support groups, as well as the 4th Trimester Conference, a gathering of over 50 community organizations and over 300 attendees, offering Arizona families a full day of workshops, safe space for connection around sensitive topics, panel discussions, free access to wellness services, baby & me bonding activities, art, and an entire track just for Dads/Partners, all created to foster community collaboration, education, and access to local resources. We are, in essence, recreating the "village," raising the collective consciousness to acknowledge, through community connection, our common vulnerabilities, struggles and triumphs, and to know that we are not alone.
4th Trimester Arizona is comprised of local mothers, fathers, grandparents, families, educators, lactation consultants, women’s and children’s health researchers, small business owners, midwives, early childhood development educators, physicians, nurse practitioners, pediatricians, and more.
