I moved to St Albert in June from Northern BC. I've lived in Edmonton before many years ago and I don't mind it at all. I really like St. Albert for the family community, but it's expensive..

I wouldn't mind chatting with some locals mamas, starting a chat thread here..

I know there are more of us! Wanna chat?!

Here's the Edmonton yahoo group: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Attach...ntingEdmonton/

I used to live in Edmonton and enjoyed being a part of that group. There are lots of super nice mamas in it!

Welcome!! I'm in north edmonton.

hmmm, that AP group looks interesting- I might check it out. Most of the RL moms I know think I'm silly to co-sleep, breast feed for so long(she's only 10 months!!!!), etc, etc

I'm in Edmonton too.

I'm part of the AP group that was posted on here. We're fun! Come join us! We get a nice mix of first-time moms who are new to AP and families who have had the opportunity to explore and experience the joys of the AP lifestyle. The monthly meetings are totally casual and fun. Last month we had a woman from Music Together out and she sang and played music with us. We've also had a yoga instructor come out, a woman who teaches baby sign language, and lots of other fun stuff.

Welcome!

I'm also new to Edmonton and don't know a soul. I'm in the SW and was wondering if anyone knows of any groups that meet in this area? My first child is coming soon and would love to have some women to chat with, share ideas etc...

North Edmonton here. I was part of the EC, Babywearers & AP groups, but meetings are all too much of a pain to get to with no vehicle. The only things I still go to, & that only a couple times a year, are the freebirth meetings.

ASAC (Association for Safe Alternatives in Childbirth) has a great playgroup that meets twice a week. The mamas are all great, and it's on the southside, near whyte avenue.

Busy mama to my three little lads!

Hey ya mamas.
We're in Edmonton too. We do the little tree group (waldorf). It's a lovely community involved there.
Just thought I'd say hi.

Hi everyone! I’m relatively new to MDC (only discovered it a few months ago) but I’m hoping I can get some local help with childcare. (Sorry in advance for a long post)

In short: I’m looking for crunchy childcare in north Edmonton. Ideas? Suggestions? Any takers?

In long...removed for the sake of the thread - now irrelevant in any case!

Any ideas? Suggestions? Any takers?

TIA!

Hey, I live in St Albert. I've applied to the AP group but have not been approved yet.

I would love to meet up with some moms sometime. Especially those of you who live in St albert. I just moved here from Edmonton in April and it's still very new to me.

I just requested to join. I love getting to know AP moms who live near me. It's so nice to be able to connect in person.

Thanks Syd'dmom! that is perfect. I finally got my yahoo information arranged late last night and I've received the "application" from Leah - but there is no information on where to send the application once I've completed it.

Super excited to connect! Hope that I'll be accepted even though I'm not a momma yet...

Hi ladies! Sorry to bump such an old thread but I just found this! I'm in Bonnie Doon as well.

Does anybody know of any good prenatal yoga classes? I've been googling but haven't found anything yet! I've been sitting around the house feeling very sorry for myself and my husband keeps encouraging me to get out and do something. Any ideas other than yoga?

it's way late on this response but check out birthsource and yogawithin both have pre and now post natal yoga near Bonnie doon/ capilano area. I did the prenatal at yogawithin and now doing the post at birthsource. Both are great!

Anybody here go to the AP playgroup with babies too young to play? I am finding it hard to bite my tongue with my friends who are not AP sometimes.

Oh, birthsource is also starting a playgroup this week.
