Casting Call Los Angeles: Mommie Matters… What matters to Moms

Hey New Pump Station Mommies who are Breastfeeding!
We are currently in the process of looking for a diverse group of about 30-40 new mothers and their babies to participate in the taping of the Pump Station's new production about Moms for Moms. (Babies must be between 2 weeks and 8 months old at time of filming)

Mommie Matters- “What Matters to Moms”™  will be a series of 3-5 minute webisodes devoted to exploring the feelings, fears, frustrations and solutions to the ultimate joy of being a new mother.

These moms will join us for breastfeeding support groups in a relaxed atmosphere  where they will be asked to discuss all the issues and questions that confront women during this age-old, life changing event.

The hosts of these webisodes will be Corky Harvey MS, RN, CLC and Wendy Haldeman MN, RN, CLC. Corky and Wendy are mothers, registered nurses, breastfeeding experts and co-owners of the The Pump Station & Nurtury™ with stores in Santa Monica and Hollywood California.

Each webisode would be created from longer pre-taped sessions with Wendy and Corky hosting new moms and their babies in a Breastfeeding Support Group setting.  The webisodes would then be streamed on the www.PumpStation.com,  Facebook, Youtube and other media where it can be of help to Moms.

4 Sessions - Saturday March 21st and Sunday March 22nd
12noon-3pm  - 0-4 month old babies
2pm-5pm - 4-8 month old babies
(Selected participants will only be asked to attend one session  based
