@aliciapdx:  I don’t have kids yet, but my coworkers all work at home 3 days a week. What they do is the “reach out”. They are sure just to call just to check in or send a funny email. It is all about a 2 minute break to remind me that they are there and for them to have human interaction. They also get lunch out and go to starbucks in the middle of the day (to talk to people)

@aliciapdx:  I’m a SAHW soon to be SAHM and its important to me that I do stay social even after baby comes. My medical practice/local hospital offers a mommy & me group once a week for 2 hours. I think it’ll be a great way to meet new moms and maybe even form a mom’s group. There’s also an organization called M.O.M.s Club (stands for moms offering moms support) – geared towards the SAHM (I think a WAHM would fit this as well) but maybe they have a local chapter where you are? Also, things like mommy/baby yoga are great places to meet other moms, or post partum sculpt a class you could take baby to & meet other mom’s. There’s always kindermusic class. Just some ideas. Hopefully your community has a lot of baby friendly activities to explore!
