A few years ago I started a journey that I that would change my life forever — becoming a mama. This journey led to what is The Expecting Mamas Network.
I created The Expecting Mamas Network from my baby planning business — Pride and Joy Baby Planners. As a mom who was pregnant with twins and working a full-time job, I became exhausted from juggling work, baby preparations, and being a wife. I was put on bed rest, leaving me with being overwhelmed and worried. I really needed someone who could help but I also needed someone to talk to about my feelings, emotions and fears. I realized quickly there wasn’t much help out there for new moms who couldn’t do it all, even if they wanted to or community where I could truly connect with while I was pregnant. Once I had my twins, I enjoyed my role as mom but still struggled to connect with a community of not only moms but families like ours. Where was the village?
After some time, I decided to make this a goal to help other families by starting The Expecting Mamas Network. The Expecting Mamas Network is for those who are thinking about or starting their pregnancy journey, for those who are new moms with new babies and those who have toddlers. The Expecting Mamas Network is about finding your community, being in a safe place and learning & support each other . Helping you find your tribe/ your village/ your support team. Sharing my stories and well as the stories of others.
