Hello Military Moms!
Welcome to Miss Military Mom’s inaugural post! Miss Military Mom was created to bring convenient, practical solutions to mothers serving in the United States armed forces. As a wife, first time mom, and Air Force officer, I’ve learned that our experiences, challenges, and requirements can be quite different than our counterparts working in the civilian sector. From frequent TDYs, serial PCSs, lengthy deployments, and fitness requirements, our responsibilities and stressors are indeed in a class of their own! All of this while striving to nurture career progression and being the best mom possible to our precious little ones is likely stressful to even the toughest amongst us.
This blog was established to serve as a forum to share information, solutions, and advice among our family of military mothers. Here you will find updates on military policies concerning women and mothers, health tips during and after pregnancy, breastfeeding topics, fitness, fun children’s recipes, and a host of other topics related to being a mom in the military.
I would love for you to be involved, share information, request information, seek support and offer it as we all learn and grow together. I welcome your feedback, ideas, requests, and comments and look forward to bringing you relevant content. Please feel free to leave a message with any requests for future topics!
I'll be in touch and I hope you'll do the same,
