It’s free so anyone can join no matter their income level. All you need is a stroller, a child, or a carrier to join. So let’s explore everything you need to know about our Strollerwalks.
What is a Strollerwalk?
A Sstrollerwalk is primarily a group of moms walking together in either a mall or a park.
Why would you join a Strollerwalk?
One of the biggest mistakes new moms make in the beginning of their new role is to stay home in fear of (fill in the blank here). This is one of the fastest ways moms spiral down into postpartum depression. We keep our Strollerwalks free so that all moms are welcome to join in.

How do you register?
Most of our free programs are on meetup.com
and facebook. You can register on either platform. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org
to let them know you are joining to that the host can count you in.
What can we expect at these walks?
The first thing that will happen is that you will meet at a certain point. Your host will greet you and give you a welcome package if it is the first time you are joining. There will be a quick intro of your name and baby’s name and age of baby. We walk in twos and do several rounds. After that, we nurse/feed baby then have lunch. That’s it!
