Hi Everyone!


I was just wondering if anyone here joined the holistic moms network. I am thinking of attending the open house meeting in Montgomery County. For the members, what are your personal experiences after joining the network?


And here's a random question: Are there coordinated playdates/meetups? I'm desperately in need of finding my "tribe".


Any info would be greatly appreciated!!


Thanks for reading =)

I was in the Central Bucks group 3-ish years ago.  I'm sorry but I don't recall if there were extra activities besides the meetings.  The one thing I didn't like about the HMN is that you have to pay to join & I never was sure what you got for the money.  They have a members only yahoo group (which is free) and they sent out an online newsletter.  I imagine some groups have to pay for meeting space, but I know that groups try to find free space.  My first experience w/ meetings like this was LLL mtgs., so perhaps from my experience of being able to participate for free, I'm a bit colored on the subject ;-).


If you are interested in meeting with other moms who are on the holistic side of things, maybe an LLL meeting might be a place to find someone?  You don't say how old your child/ren are...there are two La Leche League groups that meeting in Montgomery County.  This group has a meeting coming up on Monday night at 7pm: http://www.lllusa.org/web/MontgomeryEastPA.html  There's also this one: http://www.lllusa.org/web/MontgomeryCentralPA.html  Depending on where you are in Montgomery County, the Doylestown group may be close enough to you (I live in Montgomery County & starting going to the Doylestown group years ago ;-)): http://www.lllusa.org/web/DoylestownPA.html  The Doylestown group used to have playgroups; maybe they could be revived?


Oh, there's also a website called northpennunderten.com.  You won't find specifically holistic events on it but there is a ton of stuff listed.  Do not just go to what is listed though - call first to check.  When I was looking at it last weekend (really for the first time more than just glancing over stuff), I found at least one thing that was listed incorrectly.  


Best wishes,


Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.

I just heard that since it is Oct and Holistic living month, HMN memberships are discounted at $10 off the reg price. ?


And I know that some chapters have speakers come in on a reg basis, and membership fees also support the national group, not just the local. That's all I know. I agree with also getting to LLL, that is a great place to meet other like minded moms!
