“This community has been a solid support system for me in my journey as a mother. The events are so welcoming and warm, I felt like I fit in right away. I am a member of the facebook group and I can honestly say I have never been part of something so accepting and real. I know I can ask anything without any judgement from the other moms. Jennifer is a wealth of knowledge and provided me guidance and support when I was struggling with breastfeeding. Thank you for creating this community and providing a safe space for us.”

“I can’t thank you enough for welcoming me into your big beautiful village. You and the women in this village have changed my life in too many ways to begin to describe. I am so glad to be a part of something so wonderfully special.”
"I really look forward to the walks, getting outside of my house, breathing in the fresh air and feeling sunshine on my face does wonders for my mental and physical well being. To connect with other moms in a casual setting, just walking and talking about our daily lives and struggles really helps me feel like I'm not alone and others are feeling the same way I do about motherhood. To get outside and out of my head, just to talk and laugh with other people makes me feel happier and puts me in a better mood for the rest of the day. To feel a sense of community amoung other mothers is exactly what I've been looking for the past three years."

"Walking and spending time outside has always been one of the quickest ways to clear my head and boost my spirits, and so when I first learned of the Villages walks I was all over it! I have attended a few at different parks over the city, some with small groups and some with large, but after every one I have left with a spring in my step. My absolute favourites are the Monday mornings ones - because honestly...Monday’s - but something shifts in me on those walks, surrounded by a group or amazing mamas who are having their own ‘Monday’s’. And as I leave the parking lot, a little lighter, feeling supported by my tribe, the week ahead and whatever it’s gonna throw at me seems much easier to catch"
