“The idea of the mama tribe is alive and well.”

Winter Babies has been a major bright spot in my life and has truly changed the way I see parenting in New York City. The group is so vibrant and gives me confidence that the idea of the mama tribe is alive and well. I'm so happy to count so many of those women as true friends.

“I wish every new mother was as lucky…”

Being a new mom in NYC is an incredible experience but can be isolating too. The Winter Babies group has been so much more than I ever expected and is still going strong a year later. I wish every new mother was as lucky to have such a wonderful and supportive community.

My number one piece of advice to any new mom is to find a network of women and connect. Having the opportunity to ask questions and to be vulnerable without judgement was life-changing. I have so many friends who felt completely isolated as they transitioned to motherhood. With this group, I felt supported by women who really understood my experience, during one of the most challenging times in my life. And as a bonus, I have made dear friends for myself and my daughter.
