Farmington Hills, MI (January 3, 2007)--- Botsford Hospital is offering a new support group called “Infant and Parent Support Group- Smoothing the Transition.” This new group allows parents to share concerns about adjusting to the introduction of a newborn to their family dynamics.

Starting on January 17, the group will meet on the third Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the Community Room at Botsford Hospital’s Zieger Building at 28050 Grand River Ave. in Farmington Hills. For more information, please contact (248) 442-2565.
