Becoming a Mom was something I always aspired to do. I couldn't wait for the movement within my belly, the feeling of amazement watching an ultrasound image, and of course getting to bring my sweet baby home. When the pregnancy test turned positive, I shifted into my own kind of mommy mode. I wanted to read everything I could get my hands on. I wanted only the best for my baby and I was determined to figure out what that meant. I remember distinctly pouring over Parents magazine, asking people in online forums questions, and making plans for the nursery. The hours spent in preparation rivaled my own wedding planning a few years earlier.
Now, my oldest baby is twelve (how did that happen?). She's beautiful, smart, funny, and a wonderful human being. Looking back 12+ years ago, I realize the one thing I was missing during that phase of life was a place like Baby Moon. Sure I had the support of my friends and family, but not the support of others who were going through pregnancy at the same time as me. I didn't have a number I could call to ask personal questions and get appropriate referrals from, and I surely didn't have a singular place in my area where I could find education classes, fitness, car seat safety technicians, massage therapists, lactation consultants, and kids classes all rolled into one! Baby Moon seeks to encourage you along your path to becoming the parent you hope to be. We are the place you come before you are pregnant, during your pregnancy, and of course afterward. We are there to compassionately enjoy the wonderful times and to commiserate the tough ones. If you're pregnant in Lexington, KY, what are you waiting for?
