Join the Marin Alternative Mothers Group for their 2nd Annual Anniversary Picnic this Weekend
July 27, 2012Posted by pamela |
The Marin Alternative Mothers Group (MAMG) provides a community for like-minded parents interested in non-mainstream birthing and parenting. Find out more about the MAMG at their second annual Anniversary Picnic this Sunday, July 29 from 1–5 pm at Santa Margarita Valley Park in San Rafael.
Bring the family for face painting, a raffle, a silent auction, live music, and much, much more. Some of this year's fantastic silent auction prizes include a gift basket from Navitas Foods and gift certificates from Bella Boutique, Mama Massage, Mozart's Cleaning Team, Harbinger Cafe meal delivery, and Laura Kudritzki Photograpy. Bring your own picnic, blanket, and chairs, and come join in the fun.
MAMG was founded by Marin mom Ozzie Ozkay-Villa—whose son was born at home in 2010—after she wasn't able to find exactly what she was looking for through existing local mother's groups. She and her fellow MAMG moms have found that surrounding themselves with like-minded women who support their decisions about childbirth and parenting gives them a strong sense of empowerment and community. "When we get a new pregnant mom in MAMG I feel over-joyed because I know she will find the support that I didn't have," says Ozkay-Villa. "Every once in a while I have a mom email me and say something like "I found my people" and it just makes my day."
Santa Margarita Valley Park is located at the end of De La Guerra Road in the Terra Linda area of San Rafael.
