What sort of support groups do you have in your local area for moms?
Will you join any?

I'm joining MOPS on Friday and I'm so excited. Stands for mothers of preschoolers. Christian based and meetings are very close to my home! Yay.

Nothing in our area for Moms who work outside of the home. Looked with my other 2 in order to provide the kiddos with kid interaction. Was not available.

I might be joining a group similar to MOPs. I met a mom at swim lessons this summer who had 3 kids, exactly the same ages as mine. And she cloth diapered and had a NCB. Crazy! Anyway, she leads a group of moms at her church and got my contact info to let me know when the group starts up for the fall

We have a local mommy group that's a chapter of The Mommies Network - I was also a member of our chapter in NC. It's a huge non profit organization and a lot of fun! They started out in NC, so there are a lot more NC chapters than any other area, but they have a bunch of chapters across the US. They also have a national forum for mommies without a local chapter, or you can help start your own chapter through the national chapter also!

I go to a breastfeeding support group twice a month at my hospital. Almost all the moms who attend are first time moms, so it's a great place to go, get out of the house and socialize.

When M was a little baby and we moved to this town, I joined a mommy Meetup group, that later migrated to FB, and now we've accumulated a lot more members of kids of various ages (mostly toddlers though). It's a great place to share info and meet some new families, we've organized some small playgroups through it as well as larger BBQs and outings. It ebbs and flows with how active it is, and I've been wanting to get more active in it and go to more events or even host one, but with my injury I'm waiting a little longer. I need to get regular life under control before I invite a whole bunch of people into my home and provide snacks and all that. Also, since M started preschool, I'm less concerned about social opportunities for her. Luckily some of the moms I really like have had new babies too within the past several months, so I'll have some places to start when it's time for playdates for G I'm seeing one of the moms for a babies playdate next week, in fact.

Also, we live across the street from a park, so that's a nice draw for hosting casual get togethers once they get big enough to enjoy the swings and such.

I was hoping to get into postpartum yoga and socialize with some other news moms that way, but my physical therapist says I shouldn't do any yoga for a long time it would be too easy to mess things up again. Probably by the time I'm ready to do a serious exercise class, it will be a little late to do any "postpartum" type class - it will be at least several months until I'm ready for a regular group class, possibly more like a year. Oh well.
