Why Join the Holistic Moms Network?
Join for yourself, your family and to make a difference for our planet!
For You: Every mom needs support and encouragement as she travels on her parenting journey. Motherhood is filled with challenges, questions, and decisions, particularly if you are trying to parent green and naturally. HMN offers you a unique, diverse community of open-minded parents at all points on their holistic journey. There are opportunities to connect online, in local Chapters, and through our discussion forums, to seek advice or inspiration, and to share your own experiences. HMN is a gift you can give yourself to make your parenting journey a positive one.
For Your Family: Raising a healthy family is so much easier when you have tools and resources available to you. Through our online and face-to-face communities, our newsletters and tips, you will have access to ideas, information, and resources to live healthy and to live green by helping you create a safe and non-toxic home for the benefit of your entire family!
For The Planet: Being a member of the Holistic Moms Network is about making positive change. Personal changes impact the planet - whether you are buying organic, making non-toxic cleaning products, or learning to live more sustainably. But before positive change comes awareness. HMN works to inform and educate parents about the issues that matter in their home and for the entire planet. By helping HMN raise awareness, you are supporting global change - one family at a time!
