Should I come?
All mothers are invited, regardless of church background or affiliation. Moms in any season of motherhood are welcome. New moms are welcome to join anytime throughout the year. We hope you will join us!
Does my child need to be potty trained?
Our nursery is staffed and equipped to change diapers or handle any bathroom needs. We do provide pagers in case the nursery volunteers would need to contact Mom for any feeding or other needs.
Children in the preschool room have access to a bathroom at all times, however the volunteers are not equipped to change diapers. Children wearing diapers/pull ups are welcome in the preschool room, but Mom will be paged if there is a need for a change during the meeting time.
What if I want my child to stay with me?
The purpose of M&Ms is to provide a few kid-free hours for moms to connect and grow. However, we’re all moms and understand that sometimes our children just need to be with us. We try to provide a very informal and comfortable environment for everyone. If you have a newborn, or other child who you would prefer to keep with you, you are welcome to do so.
There is a nursing room & napping room available next to the nursery if you are looking for a private, quiet place. We provide pagers in case the nursery volunteers would need to contact Mom for any feeding or other needs during the meeting time.
What about older children?
Supervised care is available for children from birth to age 5. There is also a designated space for older, home-schooled children.
There’s bad weather. Is the meeting still on?
In the case of bad weather, it is our policy to follow the direction of the Medford School District. If they cancel school, we will cancel M&Ms; if they delay school, we will cancel M&Ms; if school is on, M&Ms is on.
In the case of a cancellation, we will send out a group email stating the cancellation and post it on our Facebook page. In any case, we encourage our moms to use their own discretion when it comes to dangerous roads.
Wherever you are on your journey of motherhood, we hope you will join us!
