If you are pregnant for the first time and interested in connecting with other Moms in the general Arlington/Falls Church area OR the DC area OR the Reston area then you're in the right place! :) Here are the STEPS TO JOINING A PRIVATE PREGNANCY GROUP:
1) Carefully read the WELCOME MESSAGE you receive after you submit your Request to Join. :)
2) Respond to my Welcome Message 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. We are a large network of Mamis with lots of great info and support to offer. There is a one-time membership fee of $50 if you choose to join a private (numbered) group (or groups) of up to 12 Mamis (more if your group requests) due within 3 or 4 months of your own due date.
Though it is not required that you are on Facebook to be in a private Mamistad group, once in a private group you are invited to join us on our private Facebook page. :)
I can't wait to welcome you and share this awesome journey with you. You're already a great mom!
