What Moms Are Saying
So happy to see there is finally a place for moms in this part of Orange County. I took my 3.5 year old and 1 year old to the Mother's Day event and it was so cute-crafts for the kids, snacks, Mickey Mouse, lots of room to run and play. The best part was that I finally got to chat with other moms and get some much needed social time after a year of living through a pandemic with a toddler and newborn! I'm glad they are offering some outdoor events since that is what we are comfortable with right now. If you are a new mom I highly suggest going to a class or event because trust me, you NEED mom friends that have little kids the same age as yours. I literally would not survive without the moms I have met that are going through the same things as me right now. Looking forward to going to another event soon!
I am currently a part of the "Mommy & Me" - 10 Week class for moms and their babies of 3-6 months of age. It has been a truly wonderful experience. Not only do we have the opportunity to meet other moms and their little ones, but we get to partner with various professionals to help us find solutions for our babies for topics such as sleep patterns, development milestones, attachment and bonding, etc. We even invited our husbands (and/or partners) to one class to learn about how relationships change after a baby is born and ways to continue to have a healthy marriage and thrive as our families are growing. Cristina Gamarnik is the owner of the Mommy Center and is amazing! She is so welcoming and inviting. She wants all moms to know we are here for them through this community. She has built a great environment for moms to connect and relate to one another. Having a baby is such a life changing event that having a safe, caring, open place to relate with other moms is so refreshing and needed! I'm so grateful that I found the Mommy Center during my maternity leave to be able to attend this session. It is 100% worth the investment for yourself and your little one. She also offers sessions for working moms that has a Saturday weekly meeting day! If you're on the fence about this class, don't be! You'll create memories to last a lifetime and it's a great bonding experience for you and your little one.
I looked forward to my mommy center class every week. I called it my "mommy therapy". I always left the class with my shoulders lower, my breathing slower and a smile on my face. The class I took was for second time moms and the person who lead most of the classes (Michelle) was just Phenomenal. She really cared about each individual mama and made sure to spend time developing each a plan when they needed it.
The mommy center has redefined what a mommy group is all about. I highly recommend it to any mama's out there. The owner, Cristina, is just amazing at what she does and I've already signed my son up for another class! What a great experience!
I don't even know where to start. The mommy center is an amazing place for you and your baby to come. The sessions with Michelle make you feel like what you are going through are normal because to many new moms, motherhood is new and quite scary. I really enjoyed going somewhere weekly and listening and taking about things we are going through so you never feel alone. They help you understand the things you should do to keep your baby and you safe . I truly enjoyed my 10 week 0-3 month old group. I feel like it taught me a lot and have built friendships with other moms and babies that will last forever! Cristina is so creative with her group events and putting together classes that relate to your age group and she is always there for everyone. If you are thinking about joining, don't hesitate! You and your baby will have a great time and The Mommy Center will make the transition into motherhood a much smoother one! I wish they had more classes for working moms for 3-6 month so I could continue.
The mommy center has a class for anyone in any stage or season you are going through. I just became a mom of two and desperately needed help. I joined the round 2 mommy class and received soooo many amazing tips and tricks. It also allowed me to be in a room with mamas who knew exactly what I was going through. Sleep deprivation, sore nipples, anxiety, toddler tantrums..we talk about it all! It's such a sacred place where for one hour a week you can let your guard down and be amongst your tribe. I am going to be honest and state that price may be a factor for some. But Cristina is amazing and she runs a lot of specials, giveaways and has a great heart. Do not let finances keep you from joining this great group of moms. Cristina also hosts a lot of free and outdoor events that can be instrumental in giving you the lift you need to get through a hard day. No matter what you are going through you are not alone. Come join a group of mamas that can support you in this stage of your life!
I took the second time mommy class and honestly, it was a life saver! I looked forward to every class and really learned more than I thought I would. The class was a safe space to vent and cry, which was much needed. Michele, who led most of the classes, was awesome. Highly recommend!
My son and I took the 6-12 months 10 week course and loved it. The topics covered in each week was super helpful. The highlight of course is taking the classes with other mamas and their precious bebes. It's a safe space with protected time to grow with other moms while you spend time with your child. Another huge plus is the owner, Cristina. She is beautiful inside and out. She understands the both the ups and downs of motherhood so she is passionate about her business: the babies and their mamas!
I recently attended the Mommy Center's Mother's Day event and was blown away by the planning and attention to detail that has been put into this event! Cristina goes the extra mile to make sure that all moms feel welcomed, included and taken care of. As a mom herself, Cristina gets it and really pours her heart into each event and class. All of the kids had a blast doing crafts, playing games and seeing Mickey Mouse! I enjoyed connecting with other moms and sharing the ups and downs of motherhood along with some good laughs. I am so excited to see all that this business has to offer moms and feel fortunate to be included in this tribe of supportive women.
