If you're reading this, congratulations on your pregnancy or new baby! This is a group where mommies can meet, chat, hangout, and go on play dates with other moms of babies born in 2016 and their siblings. My name is Monta Briant. I took over as the Lead Organizer for this group to save it from being deleted from Meetup.com when the original lead stepped down. I'm the author of the book, Baby Sign Language Basics and also the owner of Baby Garten Studio, so you'll see a lot of my events posted here. In order to keep this group "real", I encourage you to plan your own fun events. It's really easy-- just think of something fun you'd like to do with other expecting or new moms, and schedule it for the time and day that works best for YOU! With this many members, there are sure to be other like-minded mamas with the same schedule preference (don't worry about pleasing everyone-- you don't need or want everyone to show up!).
If you are still expecting, maybe invite others to go for a walk and smoothies, attend a pre-natal yoga class, or to go out to lunch and a mani-pedi! If you already have your little one, a stroller walk and/ or hangout at the park before or after naptime is always a nice easygoing option for new sleep deprived mommies.
My kids are teens now, but my playgroup years with them were one of the best times I had as a mom. I don't know what I would have done without the support and friendships my children and I found, as we attended the same group from pregnancy until all of our little ones started kindergarten. I'm proud to sponsor this group and support this new generation of new mamas and little ones on their parenting journey!
