Why Mama Friends are Important!
Let’s face it as a new mama you’re bombarded with soooo many different products, services, websites, and pieces of advice from family…. It can get overwhelming. There's nothing more important than finding what I call your mom tribe, the group of women that you can connect with on a different level… you know the ladies that just get you and your mom ways.
Don’t think you have enough time to connect with other mamas? Let me tell you from experience girl that you need to find the time. As a new mama, it can be easy to slip into loneliness, but you can’t let yourself. There are so many resources available to millennial mamas.
Here’s my Millennial Mama Resource List to help you find your tribe:
Mommy & Me Classes- I did these classes with Ryan & Leo and loved them. As a first-time mom, I didn’t know too much. I had relatives share their thoughts and ways, but I feel like some of the things they talked about were more traditional and a little old school.
As a millennial mom, it really helped me to take these classes, I learned everything that I did about my mothering style there, the instructors were amazing and were up to date on all things baby. I also made such good Mommy friends that I'm still friends with today. It's so fun to see where everyone is in life… having their second or third baby, and evolving as mamas since becoming a first-time mom.
Virtual Communities- If you’re not able to get out to a Mommy & Me class I highly suggest you find yourself a good virtual community. I have a group on Facebook called the Happy Mom Tribe where all mama are invited to ask questions they may have, share their mama stories, and seek advice among other things. It’s amazing how there is such a sense of community in there.
You can also subscribe to my weekly Happy Mail newsletter where I recap what’s going on in the Land of Mom… I love how technology can bring mamas all over the world together.
Happy Mom Conference- I literally started the Happy Mom Conference because I saw a need for millennial mamas to find their tribe. It’s very different from doing a mommy and me class or hanging out in a virtual community, it’s more like investing in yourself as a mama and finding yourself again after becoming a mama. It's a personal growth conference where mamas from every walk of life can come together to be inspired, supported and connected in a community.
You’ll meet other moms that are in the same headspace as you who want to achieve their goals and aspirations after becoming a mom. We cover everything for moms from health + wellness to career transition + mompreneurship. In this space, you're really able to thrive. You never know, you might even meet your next business partner at something like this.
If you’re in the LA area or want to visit LA in the Spring of 2019 let me know and I’ll get you added to my Happy Mom Conference list. You’ll be the first to know the deets of the event. I can't wait to make big announcements soon. Hope to see you there!
Help make mommin’ less overwhelming… find your tribe. Whether they’re girlfriends you meet in person or virtually you’ve got to find a support system to have by your side while you navigate the highs and lows of the Land of Mom.
Mamas, let us know where you’ve found your tribe and where you hang out.
