Where To Meet Other Mums In Birmingham

by BecSorby (follow)
Meeting new mums sounds like a great idea, but where do you find them? Check out our list of places to start.

For so many mums, especially first time mothers, meeting other mums is a challenge. Getting out of the house in the first place with a newborn is hard enough, but then where do you find these other mums? Other mums to have an actual two-sided conversation with (not that we don’t love talking and babbling to our children while they are too young to talk back) and enjoy some adult interaction for an hour or so. There are lots of places in Birmingham that you can start with, which are listed below.



Parent support groups, workshops and courses

Birmingham has lots of support groups and courses for parents dotted around the city, including those run by the National Childbirth Trust. The NCT has antenatal courses available throughout the city, and you can find out more here - the courses are a great way to meet other parents in your area with babies of a similar age.

Another option is Birmingham Women’s Hospital, which provides support groups for first time parents. You can also go along to the Fox Hollies Children’s Centre in Acock’s Green, which offers parent support groups, as does the Sutton Locality Children’s Centre in Sutton Coldfield.

Birmingham also has a heap of breastfeeding support groups, which are a good way to meet other mums experiencing the highs and lows of breastfeeding – you can find a list here.
