  • absolutely worth the time if you get a good group. I was really lucky. the best thing is that they are going through the same thing at the same time! and you bounce things off each other. my mothers group preserved my sanity.

  • Being able to bitch about the kids/hubby with women who are in the same boat haha

  • For company from other mums in the same boat you can have a chat about concerns or ask questions I think its great

  • I love being in a mother’s group, for my first child it was great for the advice and now with my second it’s great for the company and adult conversation. It’s nice to meet new mums and your babies make friends that they may grow up with for the rest of their life

  • To be honest, I found mother’s group to be a waste of time. The women were quite judgmental and nasty and found myself not enjoying it so didn’t go back.

  • I found my mother’s group to be very enjoyable, however I loved how mine was small and that there wasn’t any gossipy/bitchy women. That’s was a while ago now, I’d love to join another one but I find it hard to find one.

  • I enjoyed mine! I met some great people and it was nice to have people to chat with when I felt isolated.

  • I believe it is. You meet other Mums and often find you have similar interests. It also means you get out of the house and feel less isolated. You may also be able to share issues and help each other with suggestions. When they are old enough your little ones learn to interact with each other too. This is very beneficial when your little one has no siblings or your child doesn’t go to any type of daycare at all.

  • I personally didn’t get much out of mothers group. The women in the group I was in were too busy comparing their babies milestones and could be very rude and nasty. On the other side friends have gone to them and found them to be a great way to connect with other mums and have remained friends with them. I think if you find the right group and are wanting to form relationships they could be good.

  • I prefer online, so i can engage from the comfort of my pyjamas. I speak to one person from my original (12 of us?) mothers group. We had coffees etc together until we went back to work and to be honest, it was always just a compare-our-baby’s fest. I’m glad I went to meet my now friend (and neighbour!) but it’s not essential if you have a good support network of friends with similar aged kids.
