Welcome to our Group!

Hartlepool Attachment Parenting Group (HAPG) is a friendly, informal parent-led group. Our aim is to promote Attachment Parenting (AP) principles by providing information and support to parents from Hartlepool and the surrounding areas. 


Founded by an AP mum to help and meet like-minded parents, HAP Group has developed into a fortnightly group held in the comfortable surroundings of One77 on York Road, Hartlepool.


Come and join us for tea, coffee, cake and chat!


If you are interested in, or already parent in the AP style, feel free to come along to one of our Friday Meets, 'like' our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter. 

Hartlepool Slingathon, Sat 12 October 2013.

We once again held a Slingathon to celebrate International Babywearing Week in October 2013.  Our bunch of hardy souls braved the wind and rain of Seaton Carew seafront; and of course the children were snug and warm in their slings.  See the gallery for pictures of this event and keep checking back for any future Sling and Walk events.


Real Nappy Week, April 2013.

Thanks to everyone who came to see us at Middleton Grange in Hartlepool between 15th to 20th April.


We have been astounded by the positive response we received and are pleased by the number of parents who are now seriously considering cloth nappies rather than 'sposies.



Just because RNW is over it doesn't mean that our work stops; If you would like any information on using real nappies, come along to one of our regular meets at One77 or contact us through social media. Don't forget, if you would like to try real nappies before you buy, why not hire some from our real nappy library?
