Erin Girouard

Hey Mamas!

My name is Erin and I’m mom to an incredibly sweet, smiley, two year old named Finley, with one more little guy on the way in March! 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 connecting with you and seeing our little ones get to know each other!
