New Moms Network will start April programs on April 3rd with “How’s My Baby Doing” presented by Kathy Hallock, development specialist with Children’s Integrated Services.

And on April 10th, new moms will have a day they call Potpourri. This is a time for new moms to come together and discuss various topics with each other and network.

This free BMH program is a chance for new moms (dads are also welcome) to network and learn tips from each other. Babies are warmly welcomed, of course, and need not to have been born at BMH to attend. New Moms Network is a free service of the BMH Birthing Center.

Moms meet on Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11:00 AM in the BMH Exercise Room on the lower level of the main hospital.
