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.

There are pros and cons to every size family, but let me tell you why a family of three is so magical to me.
When my daughter started daycare, I spent a lot of time trying to find the right fit for her and our family. I did a lot of research and asked a lot of questions. Over and over again though, the answer to my question would come back the same, "she'll be fine."
I want hours upon hours of delicious sleep followed by hot cups of tea, reading my book and nothingness. But I'll have to get up now to comfort, feed, clean, dress, entertain, love, laugh, play, and repeat.
