So as many of you who’ve been following along know, we have a little one running around our house.
Last year after she was born, I really struggled. I wrote a bit about it here, but it has taken me almost a full year to feel like myself again after giving birth.
What I appreciated most about the support we received from Las Vegas Baby Co. was the lack of judgement. I never felt like there was a secret agenda we were being pushed, never felt like we were doing something ‘wrong’ if we chose or didn’t choose something, and I never EVER felt shamed by their staff.
Instead, I felt empowered. I felt safe. I felt supported. Alicia uses Las Vegas Baby Co. and their programming to lift up new parents. She has created a business that seeks to educate new parents and spread kindness all while building up clients during their most vulnerable hours.
For me personally, without Alicia and her team, I would probably not have gotten the help I needed for my PPD. When I was truly at my lowest, she made sure that I reached out to my doctor and got the professional medical help I needed.
Now, in addition to pregnancy related support and pre-parenting classes, Las Vegas Baby Co. is offering something SO INCREDIBLE for new mothers…Mom Club.
It’s a place to hang out when you have a really little one (under 12 months) to just BE. During my first months with my daughter I was so desperate to have human interaction, but honestly, I felt like I was a burden everywhere I went.
I was worried someone was going to be annoyed that I had a baby with me, I was worried there would be a loud noise and she’d be woken up and cry, I was worried someone was going to tell me what a bad job I was doing.
But….I was also REALLY lonely.
It was a catch 22.
That’s why I was so excited when Alicia told me about the Mom Club they’ve started this year, a place where brand new mothers can come and just chill out of the house.
The club has two different types of memberships, a “Mom University Membership”and a “Co-Work / Co-Play Membership.”
The Mom University Membership includes weekday open space for play and networking from 10am-2pm, coffee/tea, educational classes, yoga & meditation classes, industry professionals available for questions and assistance, support group access, a lending library, wifi, networking opportunities, monthly member meetups, and more.
The Co-Work/Co-Play Membership includes access to the open space for play and networking every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with access to coffee/tea, wifi, the lending library, industry professionals available for questions/assistance, monthly member meetups, and more.
Las Vegas Baby Co. also offers 2 scholarships a month for women that can’t afford the membership cost. INCREDIBLE. Just incredible.
I wish this had been around during the first months I had my daughter. I know my mental health would have been in a much better place if I’d had a space to co-exist with other adults during those early weeks.
I’m so grateful for the care with which Alicia and her team have created this new programming, and if you’re a new parent in the Vegas area, I can’t recommend their services enough.
