The idea for the New Mommy Meet-Up was Stefanie’s, a member of the Franklin Goose team. When I asked her why she wanted to start this for the RVA community, she said, “When you become a new mom, you need to make friends with other moms. A lot of times your relationships with women who are not moms change, and you need a new support system.”
Stefanie also mentioned that meeting other moms with children the same age as your child is great because it gives you and your child the chance for lifelong friendships. Plus, it is really easy for new mothers to find themselves isolated as they adjust to their new routine and lifestyle, so having a community of mothers and friends is a great way to socialize.
“The meet-up is an easy, non-committal, low-pressure way to socialize,” says Stefanie. Expect to have a relaxed and fun time with other women just like you.
