New Babies!

My Oh My! It's time for babies. A lot of our NFM members are expecting new babies any time now.

In fact one of our members is at the hospital right now in labor! We are all so very excited!

Let's keep these mommies in our thoughts and hope them the easiest & safest labors possible.

What's been happening at NFM?

Lots of great events have been going on at NFM...

We recently had a spa day (what mom couldn't use a spay day?). Our spa day was a wonderful way for us moms to get together and just relax over a few glasses of wine, a wonderful catered lunch, great conversation and relaxing spa treatments that included; manicures, pedicures , massages, and facials.

Here are a few pictures from our spa day event:

We also just had a Charity Baby Shower, which was a lot of fun for us, as we celeabrated our mommies-to-be and we were able to collect a lot of donations for a local women's shelter.

Welcome to our blog! has decided to start a blog! We hope you will follow :)

If you do not know what (or NFM for short) let me tell you all about us.

NFM is a part, The Mommies Network, is a free community for moms in Norther Iredell, Surry, Wilkes and Yadkin Counties.

We realize that all moms need local support -- and who can't use another friend? offers a simple way to connect with local moms for friendship, support and fun. Members meet on our private discussion forums to share information on everything from where to get the best haircut to tips on transitioning to a "big kid" bed. Each month, we also offer many face-to-face events for our members, their children and their families.

Our mission is to provide a safe, secure, FREE place for mothers to find support and encouragement from other mothers and to empower them to be better women, parents and community leaders.

No one should have to pay a fee to make a friend, so we offer free membership to any mother within the community who wishes to join. Members gain camaraderie and support through an online forum that is available 24 hours a day and events around the area where mothers can meet face-to-face and develop real friendships that can last a lifetime.
We believe that, working together, mothers can change the world - one family, one neighborhood, one community at a time. NFM is a connecting force, helping us each to make a difference in our own lives, in our families and in the places we call home.

But NFM is more than just a community of moms. It's moms in and for the community. Our members work full time, stay home full time, work part time, represent many races, are pregnant for the first time, are adoptive moms, were adopted themselves, recently moved to the area, have lived here all our lives, have twins, are happy with one, are single moms, are searching out schools and have watched their kids graduate. In other words, we are a reflection of mothers in the real world. And we help out our neighbors as much as ourselves through organized fundraisers and other charity events - specifically those focused on providing for mothers and their children.

If your live in one of our covered counties and haven't checked us out yet, what are you wanting for? It's Free, It's Fun and It's just for Moms!
