WEST BOYLSTON — The town officially became the center of a support movement aimed at new or expectant mothers last week with the official ribbon cutting of Mothers and Company. The business, part retail store, part social hub, part consulting firm, part support group, relocated to West Boylston on Oct. 13 after three years in Boylston. Last Wednesday, the town and the Wachusett Chamber of Commerce officially welcomed the company to town.


According to owner and co-founder Jeanette Mesite Frem, the new location was dubbed an “oasis for parents,” by state Senator Harriette Chandler, who toured the building last week.


“That’s a perfect description for us,” Frem said, “an oasis; a spa without the hoity-toity attitude.”


Frem said Mothers and Company officially opened three years ago in a room at Cyprian Keyes Golf Club, a Boylston business also owned by the Frem family. The idea came from Frem and a group of friends, all of whom were involved in different areas of the healthcare industry involving childbirth and parenting, from nurses to midwives.


Frem said discussions among the friends revealed many frustrations about the lack of one location for the multiple support groups or retail items, like cloth diapers and baby slings, the women would recommend to their clients.


“You had to go to one hospital for one thing, go to another for something else and look on the Internet for the items we were recommending,” she said.


Instead, the group brainstormed and developed Mothers and Company, which now boasts the largest retail selection of nursing bras and cloth diapers in the area, she said.


While owning the 500 square foot space in Boylston allowed complete control, its size limited flexibility and ultimately would not allow Frem to reach her goals with Mothers and Company. Retail items were displayed around the outside of one room, where all of the classes and activities took place.


In contrast, the company’s new home in the Three Rivers Building at 140 Worcester St., the former home of RayAnn Physical Therapy, allows for many more activities, Frem said.


“I saw this building three years and knew it would be a great location,” she said. “Things didn’t work out at the time.”


Town Administrator Leon Gaumond Jr. represented the town at the ribbon cutting, referencing Frem’s comments about finding the ideal spot to expand.


“Nothing makes me happier than to hear a business owner say they were looking for the right place and they found in here in West Boylston,” Gaumond said.


Activities and classes now include childbirth classes, developmental playtime for toddlers, breastfeeding classes, pre-natal and post-natal exercise classes and consultations for post-partum depression and similar afflictions. All the employees can empathize with the clients, she noted.


“Every person who works here is a mother who breastfed,” Frem said.


And, the list of what services to offer clients is ever-growing, she said. Upcoming classes listed on the company’s Web site include: Nursing beyond the first year, music and movement, vaccination information and a diaper-free information session.


“Anything you can think of, we’ll try to do,” Frem said. “We’re always welcoming new ideas.”


Clients can also take advantage of the other therapeutic businesses in the Three Rivers building, including a chiropractor, a masseuse, holistic medicine, an acupuncturist and Chinese herbal medicine.


“Really, it was just taking the vision I had three years ago and finding space for it,” Frem said.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Launches Mothers & Company's
New Natural Parenting Center

West Boylston, MA, On Wednesday, November 4, 2009 at 5:00 pm Mothers & Company, with the participation of the Wachusett Chamber of Commerce, will be conducting a ribbon cutting ceremony to launch the new Mothers & Company natural parenting center, located on the first floor of the new Three Rivers Building* in the center of West Boylston Mothers & Company provides comprehensive, evidence-based education, postpartum support, and quality products to childbearing families in Central Massachusetts. Its services address the full circle of maternity and early parenting in a way that encourages the natural process, informed decision making, and informed purchasing. They are dedicated to offering organic and natural products and the best of the best products for parents and infants. All their products and services come with knowledgeable instruction and support from experienced mothers. Mothers & Company is a community of women founded by women passionate about educating and supporting the childbearing family. All groups, classes and workshops are facilitated by qualified and caring professionals who are dedicated to new parents and their babies.

Mothers & Company was founded in 2006 by six perinatal health professionals and mothers who were passionate about helping mothers and their partners to get the information and support they deserve around pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and parenting. The first Mothers & Company location (inside Cyprian Keyes Golf Club) was much smaller but nevertheless built a strong following amongst new parents. However, there was always the vision of creating a maternity and parenting center for comprehensive, evidence-based education, postpartum support, and quality products for families all under one roof. This new center has realized this vision far beyond their wildest dreams.

Jeanette Mesite Frem, co-founder and owner states, Our new and much larger space realizes our dream to create a community center for parents, children and those who love them. As one expectant father who took our classes said, I‟m telling all my friends to GET pregnant just so they can come to Mothers & Company!‟

Imagine being a new parent and knowing there‟s one place where you can take fun and thorough prenatal classes, get breastfeeding and new parent support, take an infant massage or toddler music class and attend informative seminars, too." Frem continues, "We are proud to offer the most extensive natural product selection in Central Massachusetts, perhaps further. Our shop offers products that are actually useful to new parents and healthy for babies and toddlers(like the largest selection of cloth diapers, slings, nursing bras, breast pumps and breastfeeding accessories in the region). There is no other place in Central Massachusetts that provides all of these services, classes, activities and natural products under one roof.

The Grand Opening Celebration Week runs November 2 – 7, and includes over 20 activities for parents and children, many for free as they celebrate the new store launch. One of the highlights of the opening activities is a visit by Senator Harriett Chandler on Tuesday, November 3 at 10:00 am, who will be observing part of an Itsy Bitsy Yoga Baby class as well as taking a tour of the new center. Grand Opening activities are also listed on the website at www.mothersandcompany.com and all are invited to take a tour and participate in all the activities through November 7, 2009. The ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, November 4, at 5 pm will also include a reception following the ceremony. A portion of the sales proceeds during opening week will go to the Foundation to Advance Midwifery.

*The Three Rivers Building is a center for health and wellness which includes Mothers & Company, a warm therapy pool (which MoCo will also be using), a yoga studio, a family chiropractor, acupuncturists, massage therapists and a holistic health counselor. The Open House for the Three Rivers Building is November 7, 10 am – 1 pm. All are welcome.
