Mommy Connections Ottawa

I am excited to announce that I have joined the Mommy Connections team in Ottawa!

“Mommy Connections introduces you to programs and services available within your community. Classes provide a unique learning opportunity as well as a fun way to bond with your child and other moms in a social environment.

Each week’s 90 minute class offers a topic that is important to a new mom as well as something for moms to do with babies. This allows for a unique bonding opportunity with your little one while still fulfilling your need to obtain information and be social with other moms experiencing the same challenges, fears and excitement.”

I will be hosting my presentation ‘YOU AND YOUR BABY:  A HOLISTIC GUIDE TO A HEALTHY AND HAPPY BABY’ for their ‘Mom & Baby’ and ‘Mom To Be’ programs.  These programs offer presentations and workshops from a wide range of baby experts including a chiropractor, naturopath, sleep consultant, lactation consultant, photographer, doula and more!

In recognition of International Women’s Day, I will be at the MFRC to talk about SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) otherwise known as the “winter blues” and how nutrition can help. This presentation is for military members and their families. For more information, you may contact the MFRC at 613-998-4888. On March 21 I will be giving a presentation with Momstown Ottawa Belly Chats and on March 25 with Momstown Ottawa Baby Basics. Details for these presentations will be available soon.
