Our mission to help fill the needs of the community is as strong as our passion to provide fitness and wellness opportunities. We hope to continue to evolve as a resource for the Berkshire community and beyond.
Every Friday at noon, join parents and their children to talk about experiences, joys and troubles, and anything else on your mind! Snacks are provided and anyone is welcome to bring food. This group is free and supported through donations.
*Every 2nd Friday of the month from 1-2PM, IBCLC- Lactation Consultant, Debbie Windover from Berkshire Nursing Families joins the group as a resource for any questions, concerns or inquiries. She offers consultations, mentoring and brings a scale for weight checks and to help you monitor a baby’s weight gain! This is ALL Free-Of-Charge!

LIFEWORKS Childcare network
LifeWorks Childcare Network (LWCN) was established to help fill the needs of families in the greater Great Barrington area. This service will always be a growing project for us. For now, we are happy to offer families that are looking for help a list of local babysitters, nanny's and providers that we have CORI background checked, and have been involved in our studio community. We know the needs are greater than are available so it is our attempt to help close the gap and get parents the support they need and helping provide opportunities for caretakers in our area. If you're interested in our Network list or becoming a listed provider, please fill out the form below!
List Will Be Available Nov 1st!
LifeWorks mama’s have joined forces and organized a virtual forum for all of our local mamas to connect, stay in touch, seek peer advice and tips, plan play dates and expand our community outside our walls. Through the SLACK APP that you can download on your phone and/or computer you can join topic threads such as ‘breastfeeding,’ ‘early education,’ ‘is-this-normal,’ ‘help,’ ‘activities,’ ‘clothes,’ ‘sleeping,’ ‘potty,’ ‘solids,’ ‘toys-and-games,’ and open parenting forums. All are welcome to join the conversation!
Berkshire Baby Box
LifeWorks serves as not only a place of education and networking for growing families, we are also proudly a distribution center for Berkshire Baby Box. This box is free and for all new and expectant mothers in Berkshire County. There are no eligibility requirements for mothers but you must complete the online Baby Box University syllabus to receive your ‘completed’ code to submit for pick up. We ask as growing family educators that you take part in our Prenatal/Childbirth Yoga Classes and/or Childbirth Education series to pick up your box with us! If you have questions please inquire!
