Becoming a mom is a bit like going to university. Pregnancy is like Freshman year. You take a test, get a positive result, buy a lot of books and set up a room full of stuff you think you’ll need. The birth and first days of a newborn pass like the first semester in a haze of running here and there, no sleep and lots of late nights.
By the time your baby hits toddlerhood, similar to Sophomore year, you have a few friends in the same situation and think you know what you’re doing. But then comes early and middle childhood and like Senior year panic you aren’t sure of anything anymore.
If you’ve been to university and are a mom, then you probably know both experiences are incredibly challenging and infinitely rewarding. And like university students, moms also need a great support network and a lot of information and knowledge.
Kuwait Moms Guide aims to answer this need. Now in its third year, the newest issue of the KMG print edition was released this fall. This publication continues to deliver reliable and well-researched information about everything moms in Kuwait need to know.
The 2015-2016 print edition of the Kuwait Moms Guide focuses on the many challenges and issues facing moms in Kuwait. Mothers must know an incredible amount of information about everything from common childhood illnesses to dealing with issues like bullying and developmental delays to everyday concerns like finding the right pediatrician, parks and playgrounds for children and what to do on the weekend. Kuwait Moms Guide understands what mothers need and tackles these issues in an easy-to-read and accessible style that offers insight and information as a valuable resource useful throughout the entire year.
In the third annual print edition, KMG offers a variety of helpful information on Kuwait’s maternity leave law, the health benefits for kids spending time outdoors, tips on having a new baby, how to handle peer pressure or stay strong as a single mother and much more.
The Arabic and English bilingual edition also includes a hefty and useful directory of services for moms and kids including afterschool activities, stuff for babies, crafting, shopping, preschools, community groups and services for the home.
Remember back to your first days at university, the slight fear and uncertainty you felt as you entered a new era of your life? Motherhood can be as daunting but Kuwait Moms Guide provides useful information that helps you be prepared and reduce the uncertainty.
