Rachel has been a member of GPMoMc since 2018. She says, "This club has been the one of the best things for my mental health since becoming a twin mom. Just having a community of moms that understand what I'm going through and having that support has been priceless. Plus being able to get out of the house guilt free once a month is amazing!"
Allie grew up in central Maine and now lives in Freeport with her husband, identical twin boys (Max and Charlie), and their dogs, Roo and Bernadette. She is a pharmacist and has worked for the VA since 2010 - first in Boston and then in Augusta, Maine.

Allie has been a member of GPMoMc since 2019, right before her twins were born. She says, "This club has been so incredibly supportive, even before I became a MoM. I received so much love and advice through a challenging pregnancy and that support has continued through the past 3 years of motherhood. These women constantly inspire me and our get-togethers always leave me with a happy heart and sore cheeks from lots of laughter."
