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?

Plans are in place to start running The Mother Side Meet Ups in other areas across the country.

If you are interested in running one of these groups in your local area please email us at

It’s a perfect 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 Coordinator, you will receive:

  • Access to a Facebook Support Group for all Meet Up Coordinators
  • Full guidance on setting up and running your group
  • Invaluable experience on 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
  • The opportunity to network with local perinatal & parenting specialists
  • The opportunity to be part of a global movement connecting and supporting all Mums

If you are interested in becoming a Mother Side Coordinator, please complete the below application form and we will be in touch to give you more details!
