This post is for anyone that might be interested in OC Mommy and Me groups for moms of babies in their first year.
Even if that isn’t you, please forward this to your new or expectant mommy friends, because a mommy and me group like this for baby’s first year might be a dream come true for new moms needing a little support.
OC Mommy and Me groups meet once a week for 8 consecutive weeks for 1.5 hours in a beautiful office suite in Newport Beach. The groups are for moms with babies birth to one year old and are organized according to the baby’s birth month so the babies are all approximately the same age.
The brain child of Alexandra Spitz, an OC mommy of a toddler son, the goal of OC Mommy and Me was to create a place where moms could come together for information and support. Unlike activity type of groups for the babies or a meet up scenario, these groups are meant to support the MOMS.
Can I get a “hallelujah!” sisters?!?
Her philosophy is that every baby, mother and family is unique and while every new mom is inundated with hearing all the things they “SHOULD” be doing, her intention was to create a group where all moms are accepted for their choices, and what feels right for their family in a supportive environment.
Alexandra is a Certified Parent Educator, Certified Newborn/Infant Care Specialist as well as a seasoned mom.
Each meeting will cover a parenting topic to discuss ranging from things like the transition to motherhood, bonding with your baby, connecting with your partner, sleep issues, feeding, separation anxiety, etc. to a variety of other first year discussion starters.
The meetings are meant to be an open-forum discussion and a place to ask questions.
Realizing that many moms also go back to work soon after birth of baby, she also has a Working Moms Circle, which is a weekend group that meets on Saturday mornings. Isn’t that awesome?
