2014 brought lots of change for me and my family. We made the move from Brooklyn to the burbs, gulp! We did a renovation on our new house and we welcomed baby Archie to the family in July. Now that the holidays are behind us I’m ready to jump back into work and I have some exciting new partnerships to announce.
I will be taking over Rivertown mama’s New Mom Group in January and couldn’t be more excited. This well established and loved group was the baby of Stephanie Hinkaty and I’m so honored that she asked me to begin leading this group for her. Leaving my “mom friends” behind in Brooklyn was one of the hardest parts of moving for me. I was so lucky to have such great women to listen to my joys and struggles as I wandered through those foggy few months (ok, years) of motherhood. I hope that new (and second and third…) time Rivertown moms will find support, friendship, advice and humor in fellow moms and make some friends for life like I did. This group is held on Mondays at 12:30 in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY.
I am also equally excited to be joining the team of talented childbirth educators at Citybirths! Helping woman and their partners be prepared for the birth of their child has got to be one of the most rewarding professions and I’m lucky enough to do it at Citybirth’s cozy studio on the Upper West Side. They also offer newborn care, breastfeeding, new dad bootcamps and CPR among other great new parent resources. One of the few real birth and parenting communities in NYC and I cant wait to join them!
