-- Mom2Mom KMC will host our fourth annual Spring Open House on Sunday, March 6 from 1200-1400. This event will be at the KMCC Conference Rooms, located off the Food Court. This year the theme is Celebrating #MOMLIFE. We would like to shed light on the honest mothering moments that women experience, from their goddess-like moments to the times in the trenches.
We will have a variety of presentations from individuals in our community. Our topics include, "Parenting Through Breastfeeding"
by Heather Simons, "Managing Meltdowns" by Kate Green, "Coping with the Stress of Parenting During Deployments"
by Michelle Labrador and a mini workout session by Emily Klimscha. Our Community Fair will showcase local resources for families, including Stroller Warriors Ramstein, KMC Doulas, MOMS Club of Kaiserslautern, Luxe Hair Lounge and many more. Children of all ages are welcome, and we will have activities for kids, including a parent/child coloring room, as well as light snacks. We will also have an empowering slideshow that showcases Celebrating #MOMLIFE. The day will end with a raffle drawing with many great prizes including a photography package from House of Smilla, several Lenny Lamb baby carriers and others. Everyone who attends this event will receive one raffle ticket to enter into the prize of their choosing. Volunteers for the event can earn extra tickets. Prizes also include many donations from local moms and businesses. Pregnant or breastfeeding mothers can meet local Certified Lactation Counselors (CLCs), sign up for a peer breastfeeding mentor, or get more information about Mom2Mom KMC’s weekly Breastfeeding Cafes (every Wednesday from 10-12 at the Brit Pub on Ramstein Air Base) and Mom2Mom KMC Double Duty Breastfeeding Cafes (1st
Saturdays of the month with location TBD). Mom2Mom KMC is a community-wide network that offers peer support and up-to-date information about breastfeeding to all families in the KMC. Our mission is to help each woman reach her individual breastfeeding goals.
Breastfeeding contributes to the normal growth and development of babies/children, and is strongly recommended by the World Health Organization, the American Association of Pediatrics, the Surgeon General of the United States, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
