New Moms Gathering

  • Jun 11, 2014 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Sorry - for some reason this fell off the calendar!

Also, with the Green City Farmer's Market starting up again in a few weeks (on Wednesdays), a few of us discussed possibly changing the day of this gathering. Stay tuned for more details.

________________________________


West Loop Families' new moms have been gathering since the group started over 5 years ago. Every week or so, moms and caregivers get together either at someone's home, a cafe or an indoor play area while the kids and adults socialize. It's a great way to make new friends and for children to start friendships with neighborhood kids. The original members of this meetup group started doing this over five years ago, and though our kids all go to different schools, we still continue our friendships and get together with and without our kiddos.

We're looking for someone who would be willing to host these weekly - or biweekly - events. Right now, the plan is to hold the gatherings every week either on a Monday or Wednesday, at 11:00 a.m. Locations will vary, but will always be in the West Loop. A host's job is simply to make sure the information on the event listing is correct, make any changes (like new location, time, etc.) and attend the event. If the host cannot attend the event, she can just let the group know ahead of time by posting a quick message on the event listing and the group can choose to continue with the gathering or not.

If you are interested in hosting our New Moms gatherings, or getting together with another person and co-hosting, please let me know. We would hate to stop holding these events that are so beneficial to new moms, especially during those first several months when a little support (and fresh air!) makes a huge difference.

    Unable to make it today... Will send a message later about possibly scheduling next week's meet-up at the green city farmer's market if anyone is interested?

    If it's ever possible for it to be earlier in the mornings, we would love to join this group sometime. My 19 month old takes her one nap around 11am.
