Since it opened in a small Brookline space in 2003, Isis Parenting has been in the business of educating and calming new and expectant parents. But Tuesday night, the company itself became the source of parental meltdowns when it abruptly announced all its classes were ending and that its four Massachusetts centers, and those in Georgia and Texas, would soon be closing.
“Isis is the biggest support system for pregnant women and new moms,” Dawn Murray, a mother of two from Hingham, said Wednesday. “I took a childbirth class there. I took a breast-feeding class. I took infant CPR, toddler CPR. When I was pregnant my doctor was like, go to Isis to take delivery classes. When I was at the hospital, they said if you have any breast-feeding issues, call the lactation consultants at Isis.”
