A Place for All Women

Yesterday I had the pleasure of going to the  Mommy’s Milk Breastfeeding Circle.  It is held in The Woman’s Nest in Macon.  I had never been there and I was so happy with what I saw.  The middle Georgia area has needed a place like this for so long and I am thrilled that we now have one.

The Woman’ Nest is owned and run by Lindsey Kyte, CNM.   When I got there,  I was immediately amazed at how warm and inviting it is.  They have converted a little white house into a place that women can go and find support of any kind.  I was there for the breastfeeding support group, so there were little ones and babies everywhere.  It was a safe place for the moms, as well as their children.  The room was beautifully decorated.  It was designed to make everyone feel comfortable.  The meeting felt like a group of friends just getting together for a play date.  It was an honor to be surrounded by such amazing women.

Lindsey is  warm and caring.  You can tell how passionate she is about reaching out to her community within moments of meeting her.  When asked about it, this is what she said,

“I strongly have a passion for women being supported by women at all stages in their life but especially during motherhood…. we need to feel loved, appreciated, lifted, worthy, and not judged because we are so critical and judgmental of ourselves and abilities as women….We are all fabulous and have a lot to share with the world and I want women to feel that and have a sisterhood that brings it out in them!”

This place is wonderful.  You will feel welcome the moment you step in the door.  Their goal is to provide support for women in all stages of motherhood.  Because of Lindsey’s love and passion, women in middle Georgia now have place to go to.  They have classes, retreats, and circles.  All there to help improve the lives of families in GA.  Because when you improve the lives of moms, you are improving the lives of those around them. That has a ripple effect.  It can only make our community stronger.

As a doula, I love families and am grateful for anything that helps them in their journey.  The Woman’s Nest does just that.  We all need a bit of help now and then and a safe place to find it.  Because our stories matter.  They matter to us and those around us.  They matter to Lindsey too.

Thank you, Lindsey, for giving the moms in our area the support they need.
