Mom Squad is a Pickering based Postpartum Support Group that offers a safe place to share experiences, be heard, feel connected, and learn from local community parenting experts.
If you have a baby from birth to pre-walking (around 8 months) and are looking to meet some other moms and learn from, this is your squad!
Shelley Whynot is the facilitator, and guest speakers on parenting topics have been invited to come and talk about their field of expertise with topics including: health, sleep, baby wearing, infant sign language, fitness and more.
Our time will alternate between a group discussion/ support around a topic related to parenting interspersed by a guest speaker some weeks to bring you a balance of support and information and learning.
We have all heard the saying that it takes a village to raise a child, and never have truer words been spoken. We need our mom squad to help us through the ups and downs of life as a parent.
