Testimonials

“The system is incredibly flexible for me to choose times to text with the moms. I find it fits into my schedule and usually takes about 1 hour per week.”

Alicia, NurturePA, Inc. Mentor

“The most rewarding piece is when the moms tell me about their baby or when they thank me for helping – sometimes I don’t even realize I am helping just by keeping in contact with them.”

Alicia, NurturePA, Inc. Mentor

“Even though I do not know what the parents and children look like, I feel connected to their worries and their successes, especially from the mom’s perspective.”

Alicia, NurturePA, Inc. Mentor

“Volunteering for NurturePA, Inc. is a great fit for mom’s who have busy schedules and can’t commit to specific times/days with other organizations. I usually commit about two hours a week to mentoring which I can fit in whenever I have time (while the kids are eating or napping, or after they’re in bed!). The nurture® program makes it easy to commit time to my family *and* other moms.”

Moira, NurturePA, Inc. Mentor

“The most rewarding thing for me as a mentor is when I can help a mom solve a problem or lead her to a resource that she can use.  As a mom, I know how big some issues can seem, even when they aren’t.  Taking the weight off of someone’s shoulders can really make a difference for them, and it makes me feel great as well knowing that I have helped.”

Moira, NurturePA, Inc. Mentor

“It’s nice to connect with moms who are going through what I went through not that long ago. I’m finding that I know/remember more than I thought I did, and I have even more resources now to help find information when I don’t know the answer. I feel this experience will actually give me confidence for my next baby.”

Carey, NurturePA, Inc. Mentor

“The nurture® program is a perfect fit for my schedule and lifestyle because I can text/dialogue with moms from my laptop, tablet or phone and when it’s convenient for me.”

Kelly, NurturePA, Inc. Mentor

“I feel like I’m making a difference every time a mom reaches out to me, giving me the chance to support her. It’s really rewarding when a mom trusts me with an issue and I’m able to respond with information that re-assures her and strengthens her baby’s social/emotional development. And, being able to make a difference for someone in the time it takes to send text is fantastic.”

Kelly, NurturePA, Inc. Mentor

“There are times when I don’t realize that I need to talk, but my mentor checking in brings up all those things I’ve been wondering about.”

Julia, Mother of 2

“My NurturePA, Inc. mentor has kept up with every step of our lives since our daughter was born.  In the beginning, it was nice to be able to send a quick text with a question.  As time went on, I became more comfortable with asking about anything and everything parent-related.”

Julia, Mother of 2

“I appreciate my mentor’s dedication to my family… and me! I also love that she adds her perspective as a parent herself.  It is comforting to talk to someone who has been there!”

Julia, Mother of 2

“I remember being home for the first three months with my daughter while my husband worked and felt so comforted by my weekly updates from my NurturePA, Inc. mentor.  I felt like I wasn’t “alone” with her and had a wonderful support system… I still do today!”

Jillann, First-time Mom

“My mentor checks in on me weekly.  Always a nice comment and some fun topics to see how I’m doing or activity ideas for my baby and me.  She’s like a friend to me now.  I know if I ever have any questions how big or small I can ask Kate and feel comfortable doing so.”

Jillann, First-time Mom

“I know that I’m never alone in my struggle as a new mom and I’m so thankful for that.”
