We (Emily & Rebekah) met in NYC through our dogs before either of us had babies. We'd each created Facebook groups when we were pregnant to meet other local moms due around the same time, and those groups became the center of our new mom worlds and truly transformed early motherhood for us.
We're both passionate about creating communities and connecting people, and we want to give every mom the opportunity to make lasting friendships like we did. We felt that there was something missing in the mom space here in NYC, and out of that, Mom MeetUps was born.
I became a first-time mom at age 38 after years of wanting children but waiting for my life to catch up, and eventually having to go through IVF to get there. When I was pregnant, I was dreaming of our large condo back in San Francisco with a washer/dryer, outdoor space and private parking spot, but now I'm convinced that NYC is the best place to be as a new mom — if you know how to do it right. The Winter Babies 2017 group I started for moms due around the same time as me turned what could have been a very lonely and isolating time into one of the most fun and social times of my life. I'm still dreaming of that washer/dryer, but there's no other place I'd rather be right now — making the most of all NYC has to offer for moms and kids. And anyway, we're in NYC for the indefinite future while my husband tries to make it as an actor and comedian. Check out my personal blog marriedtoacomedian.com.
30-something wife, mom to 3 babies (a 2-year-old and a set of twins), infertility warrior, community builder, team leader, multitasker, supporter, friend, connector, therapist and advocate. I have made it my life's mission to help other women lift themselves up. Whether that help be for those who are struggling with infertility, pregnancy challenges, life as a new mom, or all the spaces in between. I have founded and managed many groups focused on supporting women who are struggling to become pregnant, stay pregnant and transition through pregnancy into the 4th trimester / first stage of motherhood. I use social media as one platform to publicly speak about my experiences and help normalize infertility, breastfeeding and postpartum challenges, while trying to add humor and reality to these topics.
