When I became a mother I knew one of the most important things was to surround myself with the right tools, I knew I'd need support but how to find it was not clear. Some of the classes we took were helpful but I left feeling a little unsure and not having really met folks because we took our classes via our health provider.
Which brings me to our first 'Mama That Rocks' of 2015, a (semi) regular series that will give you the low down on some pretty amazing women that are doing it all on top of being mamas. They inspire me and I hope that by sharing their stories, they inspire you to follow that dream and have it all.
Finding Mama & Me was a Godsend. A place that offers offers a wide range of prenatal, postpartum (hello, best pilates class I have ever taken), and child development classes for families in the Boston area. A place where building your "village" is highlighted as one of the most important parts of navigating the early years of parenting. They provide a place where new and expecting families can come together, meet, and be supported by a network of professionals and educators. You've heard me rave about their pilates, paint classes and the wonderful play space, so I was thrilled when founder Shannon agreed to sit and share her story!
