THE MOTHER SIDE MEET UPS

Are you looking to connect with other Mums and Mums-to-be in your local area?

Are you looking for somewhere where you can ask all the pregnancy, birth or parenting questions you have?

Or perhaps you are someone who offers services to Mums in your area and recognise that there is a need for a local support group?

Perhaps you are a Mum yourself who loves to organise events and support your local community!

Join us at a Mother Side Meet Up!

One of our missions at The Mother Side is to end isolation in motherhood. We want to do this by growing our community and support network, and bringing together local Mums by providing a place for them to meet, connect and make friends!

We also want to offer support and information to Mums and Mums-to-be who are feeling overwhelmed by all the conflicting advice they are being bombarded with – to help them make informed decisions that are right for them.

The Mother Side Meet Ups are informal social events for local Mums to come together, seek support and take away valuable information from local experts on all things pregnancy, birth and motherhood.

Do you want to become a Meet Up Coordinator and start running a group in your area?

Or perhaps you already run a support / social group for Mums and want to partner with The Mother Side?

If your group is about bringing women together to help them connect with other local Mums and build their support networks then we want to hear from you! By working together we can reach and support more women and families and make a bigger impact!

If you are not yet running a local group then becoming a coordinator is a brilliant way to connect with your local community either as a local Mum or a prenatal/postnatal/parenting specialist – or perhaps you are both!

If you were interested in being a Joint Coordinator and running the group with someone else, this would be an ideal opportunity to collaborate with another local pregnancy, birth or parenting specialist in your area.

As a Meet Up Coordinator, you will receive:

  • Access to a Facebook Support Group for all new Meet Up Coordinators
  • Full guidance on setting up and running your group
  • Invaluable experience in facilitating and managing support groups
  • Resources, materials and ongoing support from The Mother Side
  • Promotion for your own business (if applicable) via The Mother Side website, in our Facebook group (currently 1,500 members) across our social media platforms and in our newsletters
  • A free listing in The Mother Side Support Network Online Directory
  • Membership to The Mother Side Support Network networking & support group for perinatal and parenting professionals
