Greenville SC Babies R Us: Classes for New Moms
I love creating beautiful heirloom imagery of your babies and children. But what I love most about my job is meeting new or expecting mamas and being able to encourage them on their journey.
Early motherhood is hard and it often feels lonely. If I can come alongside one new mom and tell her what she is feeling is normal or point her toward a resource that helps, then I am truly living my calling.
So when Babies R Us in Greenville approached me about teaching classes for them this year, I was so excited about this opportunity! I’ll be teaching 3 complimentary classes rotating throughout the year and you can read about each topic.

I watched mothers around her choose teams and sit back to smugly judge those who mothered differently In this round table discussion, Melissa will introduce you to some of the competitive issues of motherhood that may surprise you and then help you learn to give yourself and others room to parent differently.
