Building community is incredibly important to me. I rely on my mama community for all of my semi-important questions without running to the doctor or ER. I bounce ideas off of these women and share the trials and tribulations I deal with in my home. In order to continue the growth of The Mommy Dialogues as a community I wanted to come up with a safe place that is private for mommies and mothers-to-be to vent, share and grow together. Those are the basic principles of MommyCon and bringing those to the masses via the online medium is a great way to get parents around the country involved.
About a week ago we started a private group on Facebook called I Am Mommy, and it already has nearly 500 mommies offering tips, tricks and helpful parenting advice to mothers and mothers-to-be. It is quickly becoming my favorite group! So many of the moms are located in the same states without knowing each other or of groups in their area so I decided to make some groups for different states and regions.
All of the I Am Mommy groups are “closed” groups which simply means that the general public can not see in without being approved by an admin. I am looking for local moms in each group to help with the admin duties (approving members, making sure nothing obscene is posted, etc.). I Am Mommy is a group that should be a welcoming place for all mothers whether you naturally parent or not, it needs to be a safe community where judgment is spared and education is welcomed.
If your state or larger region isn’t listed below, please leave a comment and I will make a group for your region, and update this list as it become more complete.
