I'm launching SoMamas & Mamas2Be because I know there are other expecting mamas out there in my neighborhood interested in connecting during pregnancy or after you welcome your little kiddo into the world and we shouldn't have to travel to North Beach, the Mission, or the Sunset to find each other! My goal is to not be duplicative with other moms groups but to create a network of ladies to share in the experience of mamahood in a nurturing, judgement-free, unbiased and welcoming environment (in our neighborhood!). I've found that many meetups are connected with existing businesses, and we can define what relationship we'd like to create with local businesses as well, but the goal of SoMamas is to create mama-to-mama relationships for those of us who shop in different places, practice prenatal yoga in different studios, and take childbirth prep classes all over the city. Our babies and our cross-streets will foster our new community and I invite you all along for the ride! As a first time mama expecting in September, I know I have a lot to learn and look forward to the journey of discovery with those open to sharing their experiences, learnings, practices, and beliefs. Hope to meet you soon!
