Why having friends is important for a New Mom.
New moms !! It is common to feel socially isolated after having a baby. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but it also takes a village to truly nurture and sustain a new mother. New mothers need friends for many reasons, one of which is the shared experience of being new parents.
The mom-group is a phenomenon that has been rising in recent years. It allows new moms to have time with other people while their children are playing together. They can also talk about the challenges of motherhood, discuss solutions to problems, and share (or receive) advice. With common problems at hand it usually is an instant bond between moms.
Friends allow them to have time away from the stresses of parenting and being reminded that it's not just them who is going through this difficult process. Friends allow us to bounce around ideas, vent, brag to and laugh. The key, it seems, is that friends make you feel like you're not alone.
