Are you a stressed-out, overwhelmed, overworked, tired and under-nurtured mother of a child with ADHD, ADD, OCD, SPD, PBD, FASD, Autism, PDD, or any number of other brain-based differences that lead other people to judge your parenting, make you second-guess yourself, challenge your marriage, and keep you up at night worrying incessantly about your child?
The Happy Mama Conference and Retreat is a weekend away for moms of children with special needs, created by moms of children with special needs. Not just a spa weekend, not just an educational conference, not just a moms-only weekend away – it’s all three rolled into one. We want to help you gain community with other mothers who share your questions, concerns, worries, and fears. We want to provide education to help you advocate for your child and yourself, and to give you the tools to re-discover your own happiness. We want to nurture you with a beautiful setting, wonderful food, and fun, relaxing activities. We want you to be happy, mama!
We have held the Happy Mama Conference and Retreat two years in a row now. The inaugural event was held at the Rock Barn Club and Spa in Conover, North Carolina in 2012. The 2013 Happy Mama Retreat was held at The Embassy Suites Brier Creek in Raleigh, North Carolina.
We are already starting to plan the Retreat for 2014 — we hope to see you there!
