Did you need a lifeline during those first few months with a new baby?  

I sure did. It felt so hard, and I felt so unprepared... But I was fortunate. I found several friends who, each in their own way, helped me through it. But it still wasn’t easy, and I struggled throughout that whole first year to make connections I could trust and rely on.

Ten years later, I’m so honored to be part of an organization whose mission is to ensure that any family in Central Vermont has what I so desperately needed - a safe space and a listening ear for parents during this critical time of transition.

Again and again, grateful moms and dads tell us that Good Beginnings was a lifeline for them.  Their Good Beginnings Postpartum Angel was a godsend. The friendly faces at Mama’s Circle was what helped them get through each week.

Please help me reach my goal of $500 so that Good Beginnings can continue to provide these unique and critical supports to families during the transition to parenthood.  

Your donation ensures that every local family who needs one is matched with a Postpartum Angel.

With gratitude,
