Mamistad was born November 9, 2005 in Falls Church VA. My own amazing Mami was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 2004. Caring for her while becoming a mother myself was difficult. Her love of moms and babies is her legacy, and it lives on in Mamistad.
My own first pregnancy led me to seek and find more like me to share the journey. Mamistad just months before my beautiful daughter - and she was born into a loving sisterhood of awesome women. Soon their babies became her first, and lifelong friends. I want as many women as possible to feel what I felt.
Until now, Mamistad has been geared toward first-time pregnant moms but now, in our effort to reach moms in other stages, we are connecting moms beyond New Mamihood.
Slowly we hope to spread to different cities and states. As a Mami in any stage, you are welcome to submit your profile and become part of our network. "Stay-at-home" vs "Office Mami" are the designations used to help determine your availability to meet with your group. As a reminder, we are all working moms.
Groups are launched when at least 3-4 moms in a similar profile have attended an Info Session and have committed to a group. Members are added as more moms come along until the group has a max of 12 members. When a group is full, I start building another one with a similar profile.
