Mom’s Groups are fantastic for a number of reasons. They keep you up to date on what other mothers are doing, they get you out of the house, they keep you social, and we have found that they really can take a lot of the nervousness and stress out of being a new parent simply by just knowing you aren’t alone in all of this!
Being a new mom can be extremely isolating at times and you often are experiencing the the concerns and issues as every other mother out there, you just don’t know it!
Mom’s groups can add structure to your life with weekly scheduling. These groups will often be scheduled once/twice a week and some have facilitators to help guide everyone.
In these groups mothers share the highs and lows of their week while other mothers offer support and guidance. This can be so beneficial for new mothers with all of the questions and concerns that come with having your first child.
We urge you to try and join a Mom’s group, you can find mothers in your area online at places like MeetUp.com.
Not to mention you are likely to make some great friends along the way!
