We've all gotten so busy to the point where we burn out. For moms who need a break, a lot of times there's nowhere to go, until now.

“This is what everybody’s going through, we need to talk about it and we need a place for moms to go and get their rest,” said Kelly Dever, Founder of My Place Buffalo.

My Place is coming to 22 Main Street in Hamburg just for moms to kick their feet up and take a break. Dever came up with the idea after having her second child.

"There was really nowhere for me to go for me to get what I needed, so I would go to target, spend money and make more work for myself," said Dever.

Adding more tasks to her to do list—during what should be a break from mom world. She asked around and found other mothers felt like they were losing their identities in motherhood.

She wants to help women find themselves again by giving them a safe haven on the third floor of the building with various rooms to relax in.

"We have a beauty room for their makeup, we’ll have a coffee and tea station, but they can bring whatever they want to bring, we have a little nap area," said Dever.

One of the biggest resources they’ll have is other moms.
