Mommies Connecting @ Mommy Connections

Written by Andrea Mitchell Patkau, Mommy Connections Oakville Graduate

My first Mommy Connections Mom & Baby class was the first day of spring; it was a new beginning! Like the name of the program suggests, it embodies the idea of connection on all accounts. I am so happy to have been part of this program because not only did I connect with other mommies, but it allowed me to connect more with my baby, and to also connect with the presenters and thus learn more about many aspects of motherhood.

I think my favourite class was the baby wearing class and the baby bootcamp! I learned so much about baby wearing including which carriers are safer for pelvic floor health and how to wear my baby on my back!! That same class, we did a 30 minute workout whole wearing our babies! The next day my thighs and calves were so sore, the sign of a good workout!

The structure of how the classes are set up really maximize learning and keep it interesting. Each class there are two presenters sharing their expertise on a subject. Some examples of topics are: first aid, baby proofing, mom and baby yoga, infant massage, photography, music, baby bootcamp, baby wearing, daycare, baby sign language and many more!

The other cool thing is you get a swag bag  on the first day filled with tons of product, magazines and samples.

Mommy Connections is a great way to learn more about motherhood, connect with your baby and other moms, and have fun! Motherhood can sometimes feel scary, overwhelming and lonely, but knowing that you have a group of women who are experiencing the same things you are, helps tremendously with those feelings and provides you with a safe community to share and learn.

I attended the class in Oakville, but there are programs all over the country. Milton, Burlington, Caledon, Toronto, Vaughan, Ajax and Barrie are amongst some of the locations in Ontario.
