If you are pregnant for the first time and interested in connecting with other Moms in the general Arlington area (i.e. Falls Church, DC, Alexandria) here are the STEPS TO JOINING A PRIVATE PREGNANCY GROUP:
1) Carefully read your WELCOME MESSAGE (you need to email me with your ph#). :)
2) Provide me with an EMAIL ADDRESS THAT YOU CHECK REGULARLY.
3) RSVP for and ATTEND an upcoming INFO MEETING as soon as you can!
THAT'S IT. :)
Mamistad was born in 2006 to bring first-time pregnant women together to share the struggles, joys and beauty of motherhood. In Spanish, Mami means (and is pronounced like) "mommy" and Amistad (say "ah-me-stahd") means friendship. Note that this is not a group for Spanish-speaking Mamis - I just thought it was a cute name. ;0)
Joining Mamistad is free and we are a large network of Mamis with lots of great info and support to offer. There is currently a one-time membership fee of $50 if I am able to place you in a private (numbered) group of at least 12 Mamis due within 3 (sometimes 4) months of your own due date.
I do my best to place FIRST TIME Pregnant Mamis in existing groups that were formed when their members were pregnant.
Once in a private group you can join our Facebook page and join some of our specialty groups as well.
