How can I find like-minded parents who might be interested in attending or starting an AP group?


  • Attend a La Leche League group or other parenting meetings in the community and get to know the leaders and parents who attend.
  • Start an AP playgroup and advertise in the local grocery or health food store, library, children's museum, children's clothing stores, maternity stores, bookstores, and other places frequented by parents and expectant parents.
  • Start a community-based AP discussion group on Yahoo! Group, Facebook, or another online social networking tool.
  • Announce a meeting for parents interested in starting an AP support group in a local free paper.
  • Contact local midwives, doulas, childbirth educators, lactation consultants, AP-friendly pediatricians, and others who have contact with new parents. Ask them to put up a flyer and/or direct interested parents to the new API group.
  • Place an ad in Mothering magazine.
  • Schedule an Attachment Parenting "meetup" at
