Hi All. I'm new the mothering.com. I just wanted to introduce myself. I am in Belmont, NC, just outside of Charlotte. I'm an environmental professional turned SAHM. I own a placenta encapsulation business; Wombmart. I am a wife and mommy of two (4 years and 4 months) and loving motherhood! I breastfeed and practice natural living (as much as possible). And I am looking to build a wonderful, caring, sharing village for me and my family. I host a meetup.com group (Belmont Playgroup) and I look forward to meeting and communicating with other like-minded mommies.

Hi ccsmommy! I am in North Charlotte (close to university area). Does that make us close? What is a meet up group (as in, mommies only or kids too)? I have one DS who is 2 1/2 and we hope for more children. Welcome from a new member. smile.gif

Hi MamaAsheri!  Yes, we are relatively close.  Meetup.com is a site that brings people of like minds and situations together.  On there, I organize the "belmont playgroup".  You should check it out.  Really cool site.

I live just outside of Belmont/Mt. Holly.  I work part time and stay home with my 7 month old son 5 days a week.  I would love to check out your meetup.  I find this area has few supporters of AP style parenting.  Would love to meet you!

I am new and live in Texas at the moment(army family), but I grew up in Mt. Holly. (East Gaston! woo!) We will be moving back to the area within the year. My husband and I lived in Kings Mountain prior to moving. :) Most of my friends from home are childless or the AP/breastfeeding/gentle parenting approach is foreign to them.. It would be nice to have someone to talk to. Placenta encapsulation is very cool.

Cool! I just joined mothering.com too.

 

I'm in Gastonia, so you're right next door!  I'll look up the Belmont playgroup. My boys are 23 months and 3 months, and we don't know very many families with children their age.

I'm in Matthews, so I know that's quite a drive, but hello!  I'm a new mama to a 3.5 month old girl, Adelaide.  We practice much of the attachment parenting style, and right now I stay at home but will be returning to work in August as a teacher.

 

Welcome!
