This group was started in the brutally cold winter of 2015 when my daughter was 4 months old (born November 2014). I had just moved to the area and needed to meet other women in the neighbourhood...which can be especially hard while taking care of a new baby during our Canadian winters. The goal of this group is to organize events so that we moms can actually meet physically (not just through Facebook groups, etc.) to hang out, share our experiences, vent, get advice and for our babies/kids to play together too.
Different events from around the West Island will be posted on the calendar so that you can see all the great places where moms are getting together (most of these are free!). If you're pregnant with your first baby (congrats!), you are welcome to come to all these events to ask your questions and spend time with other moms. It can be a great way to prepare for birth and parenthood. We can host lunches, playgroups, walks, visits to the parks, etc.
If you want to organize an event or have any other suggestions or questions please feel free to message me.
With love to you and your families,
I live near the Pointe-Claire village with my partner Vitaly and my daughter Léya. I am passionate about natural living, yoga, meditation and sharing within a community. I am a yoga teacher at OmWest in the Pointe-Claire village where I teach mommy-baby yoga and a regular hatha yoga class (Sivananda style). I am certified in Reiki and Past Life Regression Hypnosis (QHHT) and I am currently completing my training as a birth and post partum doula. I completed my Bachelor's in Engineering at McGill. If you have any question about these topics, I would be happy to share :).
