The Holistic Moms Network is launching a new chapter in the Greater Hartford area and will hold a Kick Off Event at the First Church of Christ located at 75 Main Street in Farmington on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.
The Holistic Moms Network is a rapidly growing national non-profit organization connecting moms who are passionate about holistic health and green living.
“Through monthly meetings our local chapters bring parents together in a non-judgmental environment that honors their lifestyle and parenting choices,” says the group’s Executive Director Dr. Nancy Massotto. “For new parents who choose to raise their children holistically, having the support of like-minded parents is critical,” she says.
The Holistic Moms Network encourages new moms to trust their instincts, to parent from the heart, and to educate themselves about the pros and cons of all healthcare options. Through a dynamic e-mail discussion loop, members of the group share life-changing information and advice on a variety of topics including pregnancy, breastfeeding, natural childbirth, positive discipline, alternative medicine, and all aspects of green living.
The organization, which was founded in New Jersey in 2003, currently has more than 120 chapters across the United States. “A majority of today’s moms say that pregnancy inspired a shift to green living, and three quarters of Americans seek out some form of alternative medicine,” says Massotto, “so we’re seeing a surge of interest in our organization.”
Moms, dads, grandparents, partners, and other caregivers are all welcome to join. The Greater Hartford Area Chapter will be meeting on the first Wednesday of each month, from 6:30-8:30, at the First Church of Christ (except July and August) and welcomes volunteer guest speakers on a variety of holistic lifestyle topics.
