My name is Erin and I’m mom to an incredibly sweet, smiley, two year old named Finley. I have lived in Ottawa my whole life and I’m thrilled to now be able to give back to a city that’s given me so much.
When I became a mother, I truly believed I was ready for everything. What I never could have anticipated however, was just how many challenges new motherhood can bring, and how lonely it can feel. Being the only person I knew on maternity leave left me feeling extremely isolated. Eight weeks after my daughter was born, I joined my first Mommy Connections class. Through the program, I reconnected with some old friends, and made so many new ones. Together, we navigated our newfound roles as mamas, shared a lot of laughs, a few tears and each woman made a lasting impression on my heart. This is exactly what I hope to bring to our programs. In each class I will create a safe space for each mama to be themselves, learn, share and socialize.
I’m looking forward to meeting you all and seeing our little ones get to know each other!
