Holistic Moms West Jersey/Philadelphia Chapter
Parenting is a tough job.
It's even harder when you are choosing to do things "differently" -- whether that means seeking out holistic therapies for your family, eating organic foods, living green, co-sleeping, homeschooling, fighting commercialism, or trying to live simply.  But there are moms out there just like you who are seeking to nurture their children and to empower themselves!
Holistic Moms Network (HMN) members share a common bond: a desire to be the best parents possible by providing our children with a physical, psychological, and spiritual environment that will nourish them and allow them to reach their greatest potential.  To nurture our children, we strive to educate ourselves and to make choices that will enable them in mind, body, and spirit.

Holistic Moms Network is a diverse group of holistic parents from throughout Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester and surrounding areas.  We welcome all area moms (and dads) with an interest in natural health and mindful parenting.
