How the MOMS Club of Hillsboro can be a support for you?
Here is the story of one of our members who joined us during her pregnancy (her daughter is now a toddler):

"When I moved to Oregon, my husband and I did not know anyone one here.

At the end of my pregnancy, I attended a club connection of the MOMS Club of Hillsboro and got to meet a lot of the members. The moms were so approachable and I felt like I could ask questions that I might not feel comfortable asking other people about labor, delivery, caring for a newborn, and how they were able to cope while undergoing such a major life transition. These women visited after my daughter was born, set up a meal train, and made me feel comfortable getting back out into a normal rhythm of life again with a new baby.

I knew that at the events and play dates I would go to, I would be around other women who could relate to the new joys and challenges I was experiencing in a non-judgmental way. I’ve been able to turn to them for advice on pediatricians, dentists, restaurants, and local community activities.

During the rainy season, I know that I will still be able to meet up with my Moms club friends and my daughter will get to see her friends at home play dates and other indoor places. During the good weather, I know we will be able to meet up at the park and have picnic get-togethers.

I’m so thankful to be a part of this community and I love that we get to learn about the different things everyone enjoys doing as hobbies or is passionate about and how that is incorporated in the club from science experiments and crafts to yoga and community service projects."
