Mommy Connections was started in November 2008 in Edmonton, AB and the sole purpose of the company and it’s programs are to connect Mom’s in their communities. A similar program had been run by the provincial health care system, but could not keep up with the demanding baby boom in the Edmonton area.
After speaking with many moms that had been through the public program, the founder took the strengths and weaknesses and created an eight week program geared toward the needs and interests of today’s modern mother.
The program highlights postnatal fitness and health, nutrition for mom and baby, baby dental concerns, local mom & baby classes, returning to work and more!
One week prior to each program, those registered will be invited to join a private Facebook group, where they will receive information and meet the other people they will be spending some time with over the next couple months. It is great for moms to connect both in person and outisde of the group and makes arranging playdates that much less awkard:) The goal is for moms to finish the session with lasting connections within their community.
The program now includes twenty-eight communities in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and Ontario with additional locations in the works.
