Description

Expectant Babes and Mama Babes preparing to return to work: please join us for a special Boss Babes Working Mama Meet-Up on Thursday, May3, from 10am-12pm at MyBirth in Scott's Addition. This meet-up and panel discussion is for Boss Babes that are planning to return to work after having their baby. Our panel of working Boss Babes will share a bit of information about finding the mythical "work-life balance". Topics covered will include nursing and pumping, getting sleep, adjusting to life as a mom and a working professional, family sleep, and self care. After the panel we will have time for a Q&A, followed by a brunch-type socializing hour.

Our fantastic speakers include:

Dr Janet West, MD, MBA, RVA Baby - After almost 15 years of working with families and newborns, and a mother of three herself, Dr. Janet West knows a thing or two about taking great care of babies. A Board Certified pediatrician and former military spouse, she’s helped hundreds of parents care for their newborns, using compassion and gentle guidance while focusing on a holistic approach to her practice.

Candy Beers-Kim, M.S., R-DMT, CLC, Founder of Attuned Parenting - Candy created Attuned Parenting with the mission of supporting familes through early parenting, bonding, and pediatric sleep. She believes families function best when parents are given the opportunity and encouragement to tap into their own parenting wisdom and values. Her goal in working with families is to facilitate this process as well as helping new parents understand their child's behavior as communication.

Joy Brock, LCSW - Joy Brock is a clinical social worker and therapist, birth doula, childbirth educator, and soon-to-be mother to three. She enjoys working with women and their partners as they transition into parenthood, are struggling with anxiety or depression during their pregnancy or postpartum period, and those who are navigating trauma from their childbirth experience. She is currently pursuing certification in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders to better serve women and their partners in this area.

Claire Prendergast, CPPD (DONA), Clarity Postpartum - provides support, resources and education to families with new babies in the Richmond area. Claire's mission is to connect growing families to the resources they need during the hugely transformative and intense "fourth trimester." She hopes to foster communication about the challenges of early parenthood and ways to get knowledge and hands-on help to every family.

Melissa Wirt, CLC, CEO and Founder of Latched Mama - Melissa is a mom of four plus a business maven here in Richmond, VA. Since founding Latched Mama in 2014, Melissa has worked to provide comfortable and stylish nursing wear to women all over the world as well as a community for breastfeeding and parenting support through her blog and facebook page (with more than 330K followers!). Latched Mama is a baby friendly, breastfeeding friendly work place where kids are welcome throughout the day, no matter their age!
