In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, we are joined by local mom Rosa Pynes. She is both a proud New Mexican and Mexican, originally from Durango, Mexico but has lived most of her life in the Land of Enchantment. We discuss her unique experience emigrating to the United States as a child, what raising her two sons as first-generation Mexican Americans looks like, and why she is passionate about fighting for educational equity. Rosa is delightfully warm–and from her salsa recipe to preparing to return to work to breastfeeding her new baby, you will feel like you know her already and she is one of “your new mom friends!”

It’s no secret that this motherhood journey is unique. And having people to turn to, talk to, and share experiences with can make all the difference in the world. If you’re new to the area, new to being a mom, or just want a way to connect with others close to where you live, join one of ABQ Mom’s groups.

ABQ Mom’s Community & Conversation Group is an online (private) Facebook group that allows moms to connect, ask questions (mommy or non-mommy related), discuss local happenings, and attend events like playdates and meet-ups.

We also have a very active book club and a fitness group.

For moms not on Facebook, there’s an email list to keep them up-to-date on all the event dates and locations.
