As a mom, there are so many questions that come up every day about parenting, childhood behavior, health, and development. I want to do the best I can for my kids and I know you do too.
Each new milestone and development benchmark only brings more questions. So naturally, I ask a friend about her experience or I turn to everyone’s trusted “friend” Google. And usually, I get a flood of information and opinions to sift through. Can you relate?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have one reliable place you could go to find resources that would answer your questions about parenting and health and wellness for your family?
That’s what my guest on today’s episode of the Gotcha Mama podcast, Samantha Barkley, set out to do when she created her website and blog A Mom Around Town.
Her own experiences with a newborn left her needing help finding breastfeeding support, sleep guidance and someone just to have coffee with.
She created the website resource A Mom Around Town to help other moms find confidence in themselves and the best health, wellness and parenting information to help them get there.
A Mom Around Town helps moms navigate through pregnancy and parenting to find peace amongst the chaos of mom life.
