Mommy Connections Halifax

Mommy Connections program is now available in Halifax/Dartmouth


Halifax…There is a new Mom & Baby and Mom & Tot program in town, geared toward current trends and hot topics. Mommy Connections has arrived in Halifax and is changing the face of Mom & Baby and Mom & Tot education. Five new sessions run from September 17th to November 9th  at All Yoga (Dartmouth), Treehouse Café (Lower Sackville), Veith House (Halifax) and Otis & Clementine (Tantallon) – Mom & Baby; and Kiddietown (Dartmouth) – Mom & Tot , and the cost to register for Mom & Baby is $80, for Mom & Tot is $98 (includes a Kiddietown pass valued at $50+).

Women like that Mommy Connections isn’t just about the typical mom & baby topics, but also incorporates new research, natural parenting and being environmentally conscious,” says Trish McCourt, Director of the Halifax Mommy Connections program. The new Mommy Connections Halifax Mom & Baby session focuses on issues like postnatal fitness and health, photographing your baby (Rebecca Clarke Emotive Photographer), nutrition for mom and baby, infant massage, family finances, the hottest mom and baby classes, communication and signs, post-natal yoga, and breastfeeding basics. At the end of the 8-week program, moms are encouraged to continue meeting and providing mutual support.

Mommy Connections started in November 2008 in Edmonton, Alberta with the sole purpose of connecting moms in their communities. “I was finding that a lot of families were unable to get into public programs because of a baby boom in Edmonton,” says Carol McBee, President of Mommy Connections, “and the more I talked to parents, the more I realized there was a need for something different–something that spoke more to modern families.”

Mommy Connections is now available in 24 communities in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Nova Scotia, and new locations are in the works. For more information on Mommy Connections, visit

Photo and digital solutions

When I first became an Independent Consultant with Creative Memories I was known to be the queen of simple pages. I really loved the style of keeping it simple to keep the focus on the photos and the story that they tell. Now Creative Memories has included opportunities for the more time-intensive scrapbook style with more embellishments and special additions to pages. But Creative Memories also offers these in their digital Storybooks, and I’ve found myself using them, for their ease of use more than anything. I’ve noticed that the style of my pages in my Storybooks differs considerably from that of my traditional albums. But that’s part of the fun in doing it!

I am slowly learning what all of my software can do, and know it has many more options than I care to learn about, but this versatility makes it a great tool for all styles of scrapbookers. I plan to get to know it better so that I can better assist others who want to learn too! Why don’t you join me for a digital scrapbooking class, we can learn the basics (and then some) together!

If this interests you, let me know. I’ll put together a mini online class that we can work through together and schedule some time for online chatting as we do it!

A peak at what might be included:

  • Photo Solutions: and just what does Creative Memories have to offer
  • Digital Solutions: a run-down on the Storybook Creator software and CM Photo Centre
  • Storybook Creator software training
  • Storybook Creator tips & tricks

Does any of this interest you? Please drop me a note at or leave a comment below. I’d love to know what would work best for you!

For me scrapbooking is all about the stories.  I like to keep the focus on the photos and the journaling that accompanies them.  What I love about the switch to digital is that now I can do just that with even less time involved!

I am still working on some traditional albums (I have a bunch of catching up to do, and unfinished projects to get back to now that school is finished), but the digital albums are so easy to stay up-to-date with.  In a matter of hours I have a year and half worth of photos included with documentation, ready to print.  Then I print duplicates so the girls can take their own copies with them one day!
