CALDWELL, NJ – The Holistic Moms Network, a national non-profit community connecting parents interested in holistic health and green living, announces today a new chapter in the Riverhead, NY area.
The Riverhead, NY Area Chapter will hold their Chapter Kick-Off Open House at the Riverhead Free Library located at 330 Court Street in Riverhead, NY on Wednesday, May 30, 2012 at 6:00 pm.
The Holistic Moms Network, which was founded in 2003, is a rapidly growing support organization with more than 100 chapters nationwide. “Through monthly meetings, our local chapters bring parents together in a non-judgmental environment that honors their lifestyle and parenting choices,” says the group’s Executive Director Dr. Nancy Massotto. “For new parents who choose to raise their children holistically, having the support of like-minded parents is critical,” she says.
The Holistic Moms Network encourages moms of all ages to trust their instincts, to parent from the heart, to live sustainably, and to educate themselves about the pros and cons of all healthcare options. Through dynamic online forums and in-person meetings, members of the group share life-changing information and advice on a variety of topics including pregnancy, breastfeeding, natural childbirth, positive discipline, alternative medicine, and all aspects of green and non-toxic living.
“A majority of today’s moms say that pregnancy inspired a shift to green living, and three quarters of Americans seek out some form of alternative medicine,” says Massotto, “As a result, we’re seeing a surge of interest in our community and a desire to connect with others who share a holistic lifestyle.” Moms, dads, grandparents, partners, and other caregivers are all welcome to join as members.
The Riverhead, NY Area Chapter meets on the last Wednesday of each month the Riverhead Free Library and welcomes volunteer guest speakers on a variety of holistic lifestyle topics.
