Texas Health Stephenville to Host Mommy Mixers|
STEPHENVILLE, Texas — Motherhood is challenging, rewarding and sometimes a little hectic. Unlike other full-time jobs though, it’s sometimes difficult to find someone right there in the trenches with you to share your successes and doubts.
To help new moms meet each other, swap stories and share photos, Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Stephenville will begin hosting monthly Mommy Mixers. The event will be held from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month in the Outreach Education Building, located just north of the hospital at 411 North Belknap Street.
The first Mommy Mixer will be held on May 6. The Mommy Mixer is free, but registration is required.
The mixers will allow time for moms and babies to meet each other and mingle. Physicians on the medical staff and employees at Texas Health Stephenville also will offer short presentations on health care topics related to growth and development, breastfeeding, and child safety.
“Our goal is for moms to get together and have time to socialize and learn from each other while gaining baby care knowledge and health tips,” said Jennifer McMeens, R.N., clinical educator at Texas Health Stephenville. “We want to provide new moms a place to meet with others with new babies. We’ll have experts on hand to address various developmental topics that might be weighing on their minds. This is about moms helping other moms.”
