Redmond Expecting Moms of 2013 is a group for first-time moms who will be giving birth within the 2013 calendar year. We are a group of women from different places all over the world who want to share ideas and feelings about their pregnancy and who also want to form friendships with like-minded moms. This is a private group, no one will see it but the members that get approved. To ensure the safety of this group, prospective members are first asked to answer a few detailed questions on their profile, and sometimes email. They also must attend a general "meet & greet" before full membership & access to the group. A photo of yourself and a filled-out profile are also asked of you during the application process - this helps everyone gain a sense of community. Active participation in the group is our common goal - joining this group means you are committed to making true friendships in a face-to-face community, and that you will attend events when you RSVP Yes for them. If you haven't been to an event after 8 weeks, we'll assume you are no longer interested in the group so we will remove you in order to let new members join. There are member dues for this group, and attendance at a minimum of one meetup event per month is asked of each member. Feel free to join as a prospective member and an organizer will contact you within 3 days with information on our next "meet & greet."
