Let’s face it, when we become moms, we often lose friends.
Finding friends who are moms is sometimes difficult. We’re not sure where to look or how to go about it without feeling strange. It’s almost awkward, like dating.
Throughout the beginning of my motherhood journey, I had always wished there was an app for meeting other mamas. You write a bio and put up some pictures and see if you match. Well, I still haven’t found that yet, but the thing that saved me was actually local Facebook mom groups.
I started joining groups in my city and my county, groups that interested me like cloth diapering or breastfeeding support. Over the years I have made some amazing solid friendships with many beautiful women.
If you’re struggling to find like-minded friends, friends who have kids, I encourage you to check out the many Facebook groups. They become a safe haven, there are many groups free of judgement, you can ask parenting questions and make new friends. Get involved, do not be shy! Of course there are always mommy and me classes, however, they never suited me.
There have been a few occasions where I’ve met some mamas organically and it has been so incredible, however, these meetings are few and far between.
There are some groups as well on Meetup.com that are pretty great too. Don’t be afraid to get yourself out there and start meeting other mamas! It feels so incredible to have a tribe to call your own, woman who support you in your journey, people you can lean on and learn from. You are not alone mama!
There are many Facebook Groups so look around till you find the one that fits your needs! One recommended Facebook Group you can join is:
