Hive Family Collective’s Perinatal Resource Fair is a buzz of support for new and expecting parents

PARK CITY, Utah—Founded in 2019, the Hive Family Collective (HFC) emerged from a simple observation: the need for postpartum support in Summit County. The three founders, Perry Hardy, Sara Hutchinson, and Joanna Khan, recognized this gap and embarked on a mission to provide support, connection, and education to mothers and families. Part of the HFC’s offerings is its biannual Perinatal Resource Fair.

After its first run, HFC decided to host the fair twice a year. On April 3, from 6-7:30 p.m., Park City Library’s Community Room will be filled with perinatal experts, including acupuncturists, physical therapists, lactation consultants, pediatric doctors, doulas, and many more local services and support systems for new and expecting parents.

The Hive Family Collective is a nonprofit and grassroots organization that provides resources for moms, from monthly speaker series to weekly coffee gatherings for new mothers; the collective ensured that families had access to resources and community during the transformative time of bringing a new child into the world and family. MamaBee Coffee group meets at Hugo Coffee every Thursday from 10:30-11:30 a.m.; this free gathering offers moms and moms-to-be the opportunity to connect and share pre- and postnatal tips—or to just get out of the house.

“Most of our families are in Park City, although we have lots of people coming from Kamas, Heber, or even Salt Lake City,” said co-founder, doula, birthworker Sara Hutchinson. “[Running the Collective] has been such a blast.”

Their website serves as a central hub for information and resources, connecting families with services like pelvic floor physical therapy and postpartum doula support. The HFC’s Speaker Videos page offers an archive of informational and educational videos on topics from breastfeeding and mental health to healthy sleep and play with your babies. The Boob Group meets on Tuesdays from 10:30-11:30, this group is free, however they see only four mothers per meeting so registration is necessary. There’s even a What’sApp group chat for moms and expecting parents to ask questions, share tips, or find baby goods and furniture.

All expectant and new parents in Summit County are invited to attend the Perinatal Resource Fair on April 3, where they can find support, connection, and resources to navigate the perinatal journey. For year-round support and other resources, visit the Hive Family Collective website.

Sara Hutchinson teaches a perinatal yoga class at PC Yoga Collective’s B-Side (non-heated) each Thursday at 5:30 p.m.
