Member since:

Why do you want to join the group?

I'm hoping to establish communal support networks to safeguard against social isolation, as I am aware that it is a common issue with parents of newborns. I have one friend with a child and she is wonderful, but I think having more outlets is going to be important in the upcoming months- not only for my own mental well being, but my loved ones too!

When are you due?

October 8th

What is your favorite snack?

Aye. I'll go with ice cream/ frozen yogurt.

What is your favorite coffee shop or park in West LA?

Parks- Virginia Ave and Clover Park Coffee Shops- Venice Grind, Intelligentsia and Urth Cafe

Introduction

Fingers crossed, on 10/08, at age 32, I will be ejecting my first child, a girl named Audrey, out of my womb & into the Westside. Though prior to pregnancy I was uncertain of my maternal abilities, I'm happily planning for this life changing role.
