Ever since I found out I was pregnant, I was so excited to go back to this group that I used to go to. It's called growing with mom, and it's kind of like a support group I guess. It was designed to educate pregnant women and women with babies under the age of one year on nutrition and how to take care of babies. I know that I'm not really in need of all the info really anymore, but it's a great place to meet other moms, and learn some new healthy recipes. We meet twice a month, on Tuesday mornings from 10:30 - 1:00. We all get together to make the meal, and there's often a public health nurse, or some other professional health care worker who talks about different topics, and answers any questions. They usually have a scale there to weigh babies, and it's just a generally really positive place to be. The extra bonus for mom's who are pregnant, or who have a baby under six months, is coupons for 8 litres of FREE milk, to redeem at any grocery store. So, twice a month, I get 8 litres worth of coupons for free milk! Pretty sweet if you ask me.
I would encourage anyone out there who is pregnant or has a young baby to join a group like this. It's free, and full of useful information and support. Anyone in the Winkler or Morden areas could join this group. Oh yeah, they also have childcare, or you can have your other children stay with you.
