Meet The Director

Hello Winnipeg Mommies, I’m Erin Martin the new Director of Mommy Connections Winnipeg.

My journey as a mom began 5 years ago in late September when I woke at 3am to feeling a little off… unable to fall back asleep I finally got up and hopped in the shower. My unsuspecting husband came in the bathroom to inquire if showering in the wee hours of the morning was just a pregnancy thing; nope it was game time.

Weeks early, and his head lodged under my right ribcage, I delivered a healthy little boy via c-section.

A few months go by and a co-worker and I who were off on mat leave together decided to join Mommy Connections together. We needed a reason to get out of the house in the cold winter months. We met an amazing group of woman who we got to know week after week, then got together regularly outside of the class. As a group, we spent our mat leave together watching our babies grow and commiserating about the struggles of being a mom, feeding and surviving on coffee and little sleep.

Fast forward to August 2019, when my husband’s work brings us to a new adventure in a new city. We packed up our home and moved away from our lives, family and friends and head one province over to friendly Winnipeg. 

In deciding to make this life change, I wanted to be able to spend more time with our son while being able to support and meet other families. Mommy Connections was the perfect fit! I left my long career in retail marketing to begin a passion that will help connect parents to one another and assist them in having a supportive introduction to parenthood.

I look forward to helping you find your mom squad.

I’m pleased to introduce you to my family: my wonderful husband Darryl and our amazing son Aidan.

Darryl’s kind and supportive nature has made motherhood a dream; his motto from the birth of our son has been “I look after you and you look after Aidan”.

Aidan is our happy and energetic 5 year old who leads his life with a song, skips everywhere he goes and is always excited to speak with whomever is around him.
