Old friends now ‘supermamas’

Stay-at-home moms Candice Littleford and Lizanne Oved, who have been friends since 2002, created the Facebook group Mamahood five months ago to connect with other mothers and were overwhelmed with the response.

Oved, who studied photography and worked in the field before having children, has two boys, Julian, four, and Zac, one.

Littleford has a three-year-old son, Rocco. They say juggling Facebook’s groups and motherhood is difficult but rewarding.

“It’s great that there are two of us, so we split up the responsibilities and help each other out if one of us has something on Littleford, a graphic designer, said.

“We have a great understanding and work very well together.

“Our ‘ mamas’ have completely embraced the idea of being a support system for each other.

“One mom just needs to ask a simple question and straight away she has invaluable information and advice shared with her from so many other moms in her area.

“How cool is that?” Oved said. The two are also working to launch a Mamahood website.
