Regarding the recent outbreak of pertussis (whooping cough) in WA state:
The Community of Mindful Parents deeply values creating a safe space for mothers and babies to come during their first six months to grow and learn together. For the first time in our history we have a public health concern due to the current Pertussis (Whopping Cough) epidemic in Washington State. Therefore, after consultation with medical professionals (including pediatricians, obstetricians, midwives and naturopathic doctors), we are asking all mothers who participate in our Listening Mothers groups to make sure that they are current with their Tdap booster.
