This is where you find your Mama Tribe! Mamistad is a large network of first-time pregnant and new moms comprised of smaller private groups of moms with similar due/delivery dates and after-delivery work plans.
The Mamistad Membership Fee is reduced or eliminated as needed for the time-being. The current health crisis is especially impacting on our first-time pregnant and new Mami sisters. Isolation during pregnancy or new motherhood is quicksand. Unfortunately, that has never been more true than right now. The need for you to connect (virtually) to other moms to compare notes, empathize, support and be supported is crucial - please join us!
Hi Austin First-time Pregnant Moms!
I'm Cynthia and I'm from Texas - UT Grad. :) I live in VA with my family where I started Mamistad for first-time pregnant moms. Now with over 2200 members in Virginia and DC, Mamistad is in Austin! If you are PREGNANT FOR THE FIRST TIME and interested in connecting with other Moms in the general Austin area, then let's connect. I will do my best to group "North Austin" moms with "South Austin Moms" so please let me know which you'd prefer. :) Again, this group was created for Austin moms so if you're not in Austin, please know that Mamistad Austin groups meet in Austin.
Mamistad was born in 2005 to bring first-time pregnant women together to share the struggles, joys and beauty of motherhood. My own experience fostered a profound respect for this amazing time in all mother's lives - their first pregnancy and delivery.
Mamistad has become a large network of Mamis made up of many smaller private pregnancy groups. A private group is made up of 12-14 moms due within 3-4 months of each other who will all be returning to the "office" or staying at home after delivery.
*Joining Mamistad on Meetup is free but there is a $30 fee to be placed in a Mamistad Private Pregnancy Group. HOWEVER, FOR THE TIME BEING, DUE TO CURRENT HEALTH CONCERNS, YOU MAY BE ADDED TO A GROUP FOR FREE! :)
I can't wait to welcome you and share this awesome journey with you. You're already a great mom!
All my best and...
ps - In Spanish, Mami means (and is pronounced like) "mommy" and Amistad (say "ah-me-stahd") means friendship. :)
