Hands passing a heart

The Hygge Project aims to create a cultural shift in the landscape of new parenthood, transforming it into a place where all new parents can expect more  more support, more comfort, and more connection allowing them to be the best parents they can be for their kids.

 

All for free and right in the Greater Atlanta area. 

 

Welcome to The Hygge Project.

What is
The Hygge Project?

Hygge (pronounced hue-ga) is a part of  Danish culture that exudes comfort and contentment.

The Hygge Project is a non-profit community building venture that organizes and facilitates peer support groups for new mothers and fathers. It is inspired by similar groups found in Denmark.

How does 
The Hygge Project work?

New parents are grouped together based on the due date or birth date of their babies. This project brings new parents together for free, in-person, peer support and education.

After signing up, the new parent will be placed in a group with 6 others and each group will meet weekly for a 2-hour discussion session facilitated by a trained leader at:
