Molly Mathews

My name is Molly. I have been married for 5 years and have two children. A 10 year old step-son, a 2 year old daughter and I am currently 26 weeks pregnant with a boy! I live in the town I grew up in and have a large family that I see often. We all live close to each other right now and I hope it stays that way as we draw a lot of support from one another. I have been a nurse for 6 years, mostly in the emergency department, and I love my job. Since young childhood I dreamed of being a nurse and a mom and here I am both! I couldn't have imagined how difficult the journey would be but neither could I have fathomed the Joy that would come from both. Becoming a mom has made me into a better person in many ways and a bit of a crazy worry wart in other ways! Having support from other moms who have been there before or are there with you makes all the difference in the world!


TummyTime is all about pregnancy, delivery and the first three months of baby’s life. We welcome moms who are expecting their first, second, even sixth baby! And, if you’ve delivered in the past year and wish to impart your wisdom in this area, feel free to join us! We also welcome spouses, family members or friends of someone who is in this phase of parenting; if you wish to join the community, please feel welcome to do so.

Other Onslow Parenting Resources


MomTalk is a place where moms can share, listen, learn or just enjoy. In establishing MomTalk, Onslow’s goal was to create an online community focused on healthy parenting. We’ll provide healthy information that moms can use, but ultimately we hope the moms in Onslow County will build MomTalk Forums in a place that is special and helpful for them. The entire online community will successfully grow as moms join and participate in Groups, follow Twitter posts or subscribe to any of the blogs (listed below). The more moms become active in any of these communities, the more healthy the community becomes. The MomTalk site itself is a starting point to explore all of Onslow’s social media destinations.

MomTalk Hub Site

This new site will allow moms to get a birds eye view of the latest happenings across the entire MomTalk community. See the latest blog posts, the trending topics on the blogs,  the latest forum discussions and a weekly health tip.


CuddleBugs focuses on that cute but often challenging phase between infant and 5 years. Got wisdom, questions or humor (especially humor)? CuddleBugs wants you. You’ll find parents engaging in more conversations on Twitter and the blog.


JustKiddin is for parents of elementary-aged children. From that adorable first day of school, through the end of fifth grade, kids go through a variety of developmental and emotional changes…not to mention experiencing a few lost teeth, the first signs of “tweendom” and the cuddly cuteness that only kids have. Be there for it all by following the blog or our Twitter feed.


Middle schoolers really are caught in the middle – not quite “kids”, but also not yet “teens.” Join up here to share your experiences and learn about others’ for this unique parenting phase. Connect with other parents of middle schoolers on the blog or on Twitter.
