At a recent party at The Pump Station in Santa Monica, celebrity moms including Meredith Baxter, TV mom to Michael J. Fox on 80′s classic sitcom Family Ties, and Bridget Fonda (a celebrity baby herself) celebrated the release of noted child development specialist, Donna Holloran, M.S.W.’s instructional baby video, “Surviving and Thriving During Your Baby’s First Year.”

Celebrities who have taken babygroup include Bridget, Denise Richards and new mom, Kellie Martin.
“Surviving and Thriving During Your Baby’s First Year” comes in a boxed set of two DVDs and covers everything from Swaddle Time to coping with Separation Anxiety. Bridget Fonda gave high praise to Donna. "Donna is a lifeline. Her knowledge, experience and nurturing disposition make her invaluable for the curious, concerned, even desperate parent!"
