At MumNet, we're fortunate to have the support of some incredible volunteers. Continuing our blogging series where we ask them the same five questions about their MumNet experience, today Quinn, a past leader, answers the same five questions we always ask, about her MumNet experience. Quinn is now back in MumNet with her second child.
Why did you originally join MumNet?
I didn’t know much about MumNet before joining, so my initial attraction was in having a child-free workout once a week.
What do you love most about MumNet?
The people. It’s such a welcoming, strong and empowering network of women, coming together to make life with baby a little easier to navigate and a lot less lonely.
Why was being a MumNet Group Leader important to you?
I love that I have the opportunity to give back by sharing the feeling of connection and support with other mamas. The benefits of MumNet are immeasurable and only possible when people are willing to give a little extra.
What is one thing that MumNet has taught you?
Alone we are strong. Together we are stronger.
What would you say to other moms considering joining MumNet?
Do it! The idea of committing to something (anything!) when you have a newborn can seem overwhelming, but there is nothing more liberating than connecting with understanding women, taking some time for yourself and, perhaps most importantly, having someone else watch your baby.
