The Chelmsford Mothers' Club hosts monthly general meeting open to all members. Monthly meetings are geared towards promoting personal growth as mothers, providing strategies for effective parenting, and managing the stresses and challenges our members and their families face daily. Meetings over the past year have included educational parenting topics such as children’s sleep, managing childhood anxiety and anger, encouraging reluctant eaters, social emotional learning, and normative speech and language development. The CMC also host a variety of speakers and panels covering topics for parents including creative outlets for managing stress, estate planning, and how to re-enter the workforce after raising children.
Occasionally meeting are activity-based, such as a member skill-share, crafting, or favorite things swap. We also host two catered celebrations each year; one to celebrate our members who have added to their family over the past year, and our annual meeting which reviews the past year, looks ahead to the coming year, and recognize our invaluable volunteers.
Each meeting runs for approximately two to two and a half hours, allowing time for members to socialize with one another and enjoy light refreshments before the presentation. Monthly meetings often draw a great variety of club members, making it a wonderful way for new and old members to meet, exchange ideas, and network.
Topics and events for the upcoming year include:
- Life by Design
- New Mom & Baby Celebration
- Favorite Things & Cookie Swap
- Kids & Animals
- Emergency Preparedness
- Intentional Parenting

Our Next General Meeting
September 19th, 6:30 pm
Join us Wednesday September 19 for a hands-on workshop with presenter Jenessa Durrani.
Are you living a life by your own conscious design? Has everything been placed just right to give you the balance, space and time needed to help you flourish? Would you say you are thriving, or surviving?
It is so easy to get caught up in the right now, that we lose focus of what we really want and need in our lives. We seldom have the time and space to take a pause, breathe and focus on what we want our life to look like and how we want to spend our valuable time.
Join us for this interactive workshop to help you set your sights on your life by design and begin to put the pieces together. The workshop will include fun exercises and guided meditation with the goal of leaving with a clear view of how you want your future to look--what you want to avoid--and what you can't wait to add.
