5 ways to find and join a mums group.

Having the support and friendship of other mums who are living the same experience is important for the well-being of every mum.

When it comes to finding a mums group, a lot depends on where you live. Here are 5 paths to follow to find your perfect mums group:



1. Check with your hospital

After birth, hospitals often assign new mums to a group to meet with in your local area. If you haven't recieved any information, ask your maternity health nurse or check your hospital's noticeboard for information.
------------------------------------------

2. Breastfeeding Support Groups

Whether you are pregnant, fully breastfeeding, partially breastfeeding, expressing or bottle-feeding you will be welcomed.

Australia: More than 230 local Australian Breastfeeding Association (ABA) groups operate throughout Australia. Enter your postcode here to find your local group.

UK: ABM (Association of Breastfeeding Mothers encourages new mums to join a group, for understanding, encouragement and friendship.
------------------------------------------

3. Online support

You may find that you prefer an online support system, where you can ask questions, join in with discussions and read interesting content.

Online Facebook mum groups are great for this, as there are thousands of other mums on hand! No matter what time of day it is, you're bound to receive helpful advice and suggestions.

4. Mush

Mush is a location style mobile App where you can create a profile for yourself with a bit about you and your children, where you live, and an adorable photo. Mush will then show you connections of other ‘Mushers’ around your local area. It's like Tinder for mums friends! For more information, see here.
------------------------------------------

5. Playgroups

Mums, dads, grandparents, carers and family members all benefit from sharing playgroup with children, through informal play activities and social interaction.

Australia: Playgroup Australia.

Being a first-time mum is hard, but nothing could have prepared me for my son having Silent Reflux. Here's my journey to getting a diagnosis and treatment for him.
It's a common concern for any mother, whether you have a newborn or whether your children are all grown up (or anywhere in between). Am I doing my best?
My son was a very fussy baby. He only settled when he was being held, he didn’t nap for very long during the day, he was very uncomfortable after a feed (more so in the evening) and he never slept through the night.
