Hi! My husband and I, along with our 2 daughters, moved to Christchurch in January 2012. We’ve definitely acclimated to this wonderful city! Christchurch is a great place to live. We have settled in and love it!
We also love doing life in community… everything from getting to know our neighbours to what’s happening at our local library. Being away from family (as we always have been) we’ve come to rely on the friends that have come into our lives. In Christchurch we found helpful people all along the way who have given us tips, directions and places to go. We are thankful!
I started thinking that there are certainly others who are new to Christchurch and would also like to connect. Besides new comers to the area there are new mums who would benefit on info specifically for mums in Christchurch. It can be a lonely start with a newborn. It’s comforting to know that there are other mums out there for support.
Soon after starting the site a Facebook support of 500 mums was passed over to me. Over the years that group has grown to over 8500 mums. The group is a great place to connect, meet other mums in your area, and ask questions.
So here I am… sharing information as well as gaining information (pipe in anytime!). Creating a space to share children’s activities, events, local happenings and helpful advice for finding necessities (like doctors, schools and playgrounds).
Much love to you, wherever you are at in your journey of motherhood and of finding community.
