At MumNet, we're fortunate to have the support of some incredible volunteers. Today Daniela, a past leader, answers the same five questions we always ask, about her MumNet experience.
Group: Roncy I
Why did you originally join MumNet?
A friend told me it was one of the highlights of her mat leave. Enough said.
What do you love most about MumNet?
The awesome community of moms I am part of. I now have people I can go to and ask, what's this rash all about? How can I get the babe to sleep longer? Will I ever sleep more than four hours in a row again? What's the best product to deal with [insert random baby issue here]? We also plan nights out sans babies, which are always lots of fun.
Why was being a MumNet Group Leader important to you?
Walking into my first MumNet session was scary, and the leaders made me feel welcome and supported. I wanted to be able to do that for others. And I love organizing stuff.
What is one thing that MumNet has taught you?
Everything changes. Right when you think you have this whole parenting thing down, your kid will do something different. Enjoy the highs and ride out the lows.
What would you say to other moms considering joining MumNet?
As Nike would say, Just Do It! It's a great (non-intimidating) way to meet people. And we serve coffee.
