Have you ever thought about
getting involved in mentoring, but you weren't sure who to contact or
what to do? Maybe you've wanted to know more before you got involved,
but were afraid to ask. Well, search no more. Mentoring is one of the
most fundamental lifelines of our club and even you can take advantage
Remember how crazy things were
when you were pregnant and then right after you gave birth? Just think
of what type of assistance you could've used during those first few
trying months. Perhaps you would have benefited from having someone to
talk to, laugh and cry with, scream at, or simply to seek advice from.
Perhaps you had physical help from family and friends, but no one close
to you could understand the stress of feeding infant twins through the
night. Or maybe you just had a few simple questions to ask, that only
another mother of twins could answer. Remember? It was a trying time
wasn't it? Well, that's what our new and pregnant moms are going
through now and they need your help.
Building relationships and
providing heartfelt advice, are key to being a mentor. Our new and
pregnant moms bring enthusiasm, excitement and endearment to our club
and it is the clubs goal to keep that growing.
By becoming a mentor, you will be
promoting relationships with new and pregnant moms by offering advice,
answering questions, calming fears, encouraging hopes and dreams, and
by most of all, just listening. You should encourage them to
communicate with you and the club and help give them a piece of mind
that everything will turn out just fine. Mentors should also try and
contact their new mom at least once a week. You may not always get to
speak with her, but she will know you are thinking about her and that
you care, even if she doesn't return your call right away.
Each member of our club should try
and get to know our new and pregnant moms. Offering to take a pregnant
mom to lunch or bringing dinner to a new mom are a couple of ways to do
this. They are the future of our club. As long as you are
providing the love and care you wished for when you were in that
situation, you can't go wrong. Just be their friend.
