7 Reasons To Join A Mums Group

by Jemma (follow)
It takes a village to raise a child, and these days our 'villages' can be difficult to find.

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

Here are 7 reasons to join a real world mums group:

1. More support

If you don't have family nearby, or friends who can relate to your stage of motherhood, joining a mum group is a fantastic way of connecting with other women who know exactly what you're going through.

Instead of Googling every question you have, you can meet/text/call your new tribe for all the answers.

2. Get out of the house

If you feel like you're constantly staring at the same four walls, mum group meet ups are great for a consistent change of scenery.

They give you something to look forward to, and they're a great excuse to get dressed properly and enjoy a taste of fresh air.

3. Find local friends

Local friends just make everything so much easier. If you join a group close by, you've already won the mum group lottery.

No more driving across the city, or struggling with public transport instead, enjoy the local parks and cafes in your own suburb. Bonus point: you can even pop into each other's houses with ease.

4. Make new mini friends

Joining a mums group is just as beneficial for your little one too, no matter what their age is. Babies, toddlers and primary age kids can socialise with others of the same age, and who knows they may end up growing up together as life-long friends!

5. Realise that perfect mothers don't exist

If you feel the pressure to be 'perfect' mother, joining a mums group will help to alleviate that.

While building a relationship with your new friends, you'll learn firsthand that there's no 'right' way to raise children; everyone is doing the best they can.

6. Learn that all babies are different

Comparisons are bound to happen, but when you bond with other mums and get to know their little ones, you'll soon learn that babies and children develop at different rates. There's a big window of time for milestones, so let your mothers group be a place of comfort that there's nothing to worry about!

7. Widen your adult social circle

When you start a family, you may find that your social circle starts shrinking as life gets in the way. By joining a mums group, not only are you making friends, but your partner can potentially make friends too. New adults in your life can also give you additional babysitting options.

Are you ready to join one? Register here to be matched with 6 to 10 mums who live in the same area, with children of a simlar age. It's FREE to register your interest.
