Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.
~ Anthony J. D’Angelo
Community means a lot when you are a mom. In order to thrive, you must have a non-judgmental group of mothers to whom you can turn when others may not quite understand what you are going through. This process is truly healing. Whether you are sharing an amazing milestone that your child has accomplished or voicing your frustration, a friend who has been through similar experiences can not only hear what you are saying, but they can truly empathize with your situation. As mothers it is nice to hear, “I went through that while I was breastfeeding too,” or “I had a similar worry about my daughter while she was teething.” Who better to share your triumphs and struggles with than another woman who has actually been there? Each step of parenthood is an exciting and sometimes frightening time so mothers can greatly benefit from a caring woman-to-woman connection.
In the summer of 2013 Mindful Body Mothering was born to connect moms-to-be and mothers together in support of one another. When this blog was created, it never occurred to me that people may not only want to comment on topics that I posted, but perhaps they may have something important to share with a community of mothers. As a result, the community support section was created. Please feel welcome to share anything that is on your mind. As parents, we have all worried about certain topics and we may have simply needed reassurance that it would be okay or be given reliable resources for help, so nothing is too silly to bring up! There is also an anonymous option when you post to this website so your name will remain unknown if you wish.
