somewhere in Connecticut, totally unbeknownst to us, a expecting Jessica rich started looking for some peers as well as pals having infants around the exact same time as well as produced the very first ever Rookie moms Meetup. By the time she had her baby, she had gathered 18 moms to be her tribe.
These new mamas got together for strollercize, playground playdates, as well as other rookie-mom difficulties that Jessica set out for the group. exactly how remarkable is that? as well as why didn’t we believe of it? A group of rookie moms utilizing our book as a springboard for their new mom adventures?! We couldn’t be more thrilled.

I asked Jessica all about their group as well as exactly how it was going as well as she told me:
I honestly don’t keep in mind where I heard about your book, however I keep in mind believing “I requirement a copy of this!” as well as went out to Barnes as well as Noble that day as well as chosen one up.
When I got pregnant, I started looking around for a mom’s group. I wasn’t surprised when I didn’t discover anything right here. All the groups were in Rhode Island or the southeastern part of Connecticut.
The northeastern part of Connecticut is type of sparsely populated as well as there are not a great deal of mom’s groups in the area. To be honest, there’s not a great deal of anything in our area.
I desired something in my backyard, so I started a group. I truly didn’t have the faintest concept what I was doing (still don’t, to be honest). I was surprised as well as excited when somebody joined my group (nobody wishes to be that youngster in institution that’s all by themselves on the playground, particularly since I truly was that kid…I didn’t want to be her around once again as an adult). now there are more than a lots of us, which is stating something provided exactly how little the general population is here.
Obviously, necessity is the mom of invention. Whitney as well as I produced this website as our means to cope with boredom as well as loneliness as well as to reach the goal of having something fun to do with our infants every day. Jessica as well as her good friends discovered their own forum. You go girls!
