Mom's Morning Out
Mom’s Morning Out, a group for new moms and their babies, has become one of the most popular Birth and Parenting Programs here at LRH. Beginning in February 2000, the group has loyal following with some mothers, who attended with their first born now continuing with their subsequent babies. The seasoned mothers act as mentors for the newer mothers. The group meets weekly on Wednesday morning from 10:00 to noon.
Curiosity from passersby is common as the laughter and noise from both mothers and their infants reminds one of the friendly neighborhood kitchen gatherings of mothers in years gone by.
New moms love to talk about their many adventures with their new babies. Typical topics of conversation include learning to cope with sleep deprivation for parents, a crying baby, wondering if baby is getting enough to eat, etc. Of course the many moments of happiness with the wonder of their new baby is also shared with the group. Mom’s Morning Out seems to be a great vehicle for development of pride and empowerment for these new mothers in their new role of parent.
