Post info here about your group or gathering (playdate, mama-meetings, coffe-claches, knitting circles....whatever) anywhere in Indiana.

Please put the name of the town/city & whether you're posting a group or a gathering in the subject heading.

(It would be great if someone from Ohio & Michigan would each start similar threads...)

Moderator(s): can you sticky this thread for easy access? Thanks!

Attachment Parents of Indianapolis

IndyAP is a local coalition promoting and providing support for attachment parenting practices that develop and enhance a nurturing, responsive relationship between parent and child.

We are an inclusive, unique and diverse group of devoted parents who identify with the attachment parenting philosophy. We support each other in our parenting successes and struggles as we lovingly guide our children towards a secure and successful independence. Each member’s unique background and perspectives bring together a remarkably valuable resource of experience and knowledge that we all benefit from greatly.

For more information: PM me.

I've run a yahoo group for NW Indiana moms for a year and a half now. Mom's Night Outs, playdates, parkdates, etc. Moms of all types and belief systems, so not necessarily AP though there are some very AP moms on the group. Mostly Lake and Porter Counties, though there are some over the border into IL and down south in Newton and Jasper as well. We'd be glad to have you!

For all sorts of reasons women's circles are sprouting up everywhere!

We aim to provide a haven where essential female values can be discussed, an opportunity to "mesh" positive women and plant the seeds of growth in the spirit of a community of inspiring women, while celebrating the rich diverisity of our lives.

Women longing for a powerful and supportive community in which to thrive can find and share wisdom here. a place to gather with the purpose of embracing shared and unique womanly traits such as Marriage, Child Birth, Mothering, sickness, celebrations and common issues of the day.

We will host a safe place for women of consious thinking to meet in a monthly circle in order to build bonds, develope a sense of community, benifit from eachothers strenghs, draw from one anothers expeiriences and MOST important provide a support network for lifes journey as women!

A Yahoo Group serves as our forum for announcements, up coming circle meetings, ideas to be exchanged and as a means of connecting with other members.

Please either PM me or check out http://groups.yahoo.com/group/brwwcircle/
to request to join.

WHEN WONDERFUL WOMEN GET TOGETHER, WONDERFUL THINGS HAPPEN!

What: Holistic Moms Playgroup
When: Thursday April 26th @ 10:00am
Where: Play*A*Lot @ Pinheads in Fishers (they charge $4.50 per child)

Sorry about the title saying Cloth Diapering Workshop in my last post! We will be having a cloth diapering workshop, as well.

Barefoot Herbs + Barefoot Kids is having a cloth diapering workshop on Saturday, June 2nd from 4:00-6:00. Julie Finn, expierenced cloth diapering mama, will be presenting and answering questions. The workshop will focus on the different kinds of cloth diapers & the benefits to you, your baby & the planet. Once again, lap babies are welcome, but we are asking for you to find childcare for your babies & toddlers on the move - because of limited space and breakable items. This will be a great class for families new to cloth diapers, or new families expecting their first child. Cost for this workshop, is yet to be determined, but will not be over $10. I will repost, when I know more.

Please call and sign up if you plan to attend - 812-339-5090.
