Who are we? Where did we come from? Why are we doing this?
We are Ashley, Monica and Krystal. We are 30 something year old, first time moms of boys. We are making it through life with a coffee in the am and a glass of wine in the pm. We met by chance when we were pregnant and held on to each other for dear life through heartburn, joint pain, antenatal depression, postpartum depression, early labour, late labour, no sleep, ear plugs, schedules, peeing a little bit while you laugh, tears, tears and more tears. We held on because we knew that only a fellow mom knows what to say to make you feel better at 3am when you haven’t slept and your baby is crying non stop. A fellow mom raising a child in this day, with today’s societal pressures, with dynamic families, personal ambitions, daily struggles and lots of love to give. We held on and held each other up through the tough days, milestones and celebrations.
Together we are a powerful team, Krystal is a Sale and Marketing powerhouse and Ashley recently got her B.A in Psychology (While newly postpartum!). Monica has B.A in Child Youth Counselling, has a Child and Youth Worker Diploma and is Triple P certified which means she supports children and youth struggling with mental health concerns and illness and also works with parents providing parenting support and coaching.
We are doing this because we want all new moms to have a safe place to go. We know how hard and isolating it can be as a new mom when your village is scattered and support systems aren’t what they need to be. We are also doing this for us. Just like everyone we still have things to work on in our own experiences. We love to express ourselves.
