Congratulations on your first pregnancy or the birth of your new baby! This can be a tricky time full of lots of changes (some good, some not), unexpected situations, many concerns and tons of questions. Don't worry, ITS NOT JUST YOU! Relax, you're here now - surrounded by many other moms who understand how you feel.
Mamistad has been around since 2005 when I was pregnant for the first time, new to the area, in desperate need of friends and excited but totally lost on how to be a mom! :) Since then, we've formed over 200 pregnancy groups from Reston to DC and are now in TX and CO too! I keep getting mamas in LC requesting groups so I think it may be time to expand! :)
Joining Mamistad is FREE and there is a fee of $75 to join a private first-time or new moms group. This fee is not due until you have all the info you need and have approved of the group I have for you.
IF YOU'RE READY to be an active member of your own Pregnancy/New Mami group with other who are due/delivered within 3 months of your due date and will be SAHMs (stay-at-home moms) or OMs (office moms) like you, PLEASE follow these easy steps:
1) complete your profile - your answers are important so please read carefully. :)
2) You'll be approved via email (usually within 1-3 days). Please read the welcome letter carefully and follow the next easy steps... (0:
3) Sign up for a Mamistad Info Session as soon as you can (these are listed on our calendar and visible only to approved members). I'll explain everything else there! :)
I can't wait to welcome you and share this awesome journey with you. You're already a great mom!
