Meet other London Mums

by Sally Foster (follow)
Here are some ways to make some Mummy friends in London

As a new mum, I learnt pretty quickly that having other mum friends close by, was as critical to my wellbeing as showering occasionally and having triple shot coffees to keep me going.

But what if none of your friends have kids? Or if they do, they don’t live in your area?



Here are some ways in London that you can meet other Mums and hopefully make some lifelong friends.

1. Mush

The app Mush is commonly referred to on the circuit as ‘Tinder for Mums’. It is a location style app where you create a profile for yourself with a bit about you and your child, where you live, and an adorable photo. Mush will then show you connections of other ‘Mushers’ around your local area.

You can take a peek at the profile of mums closest to you and see if you have anything in common. Maybe you have a baby the same age. Or both love yoga. Or you just happen to live in the same street.

If you think you could be friends, you send out a connection request. The other musher has the option to accept your request, then bam, you have a little chit chat through the app and decide if you want to meet up in real life.

If you are new to an area or don’t have a mothers group, Mush is another way of getting to know some of the mums you probably walk passed every morning on your daily please-go-to-sleep-walk.



2. London Mums Group

Our very own London Mums Group is a great way to meet other Mums! With over 2,500 Mums connected to the group, there is bound to be some that live nearby to you. So next time you are on Facebook, why not post up an introduction and see if anyone connects back with you.

3. Happity

Happity is a website where you can find baby and toddler groups that are happening in your local area. Aimed at parents of under 5's, there is literally thousands of meet ups happening each week. Activities include singing and dancing, rhyme time, playgroups, park meet ups and more.

To find a group, you can filter your results by age group, time, distance and more, so you can find a group that fits in with your schedule and where you are located.

4. Local Council

Another great way of finding a playgroup is to contact your local council. There are so many libraries, churches and halls that have playgroups happening every day, it is just a matter of finding them. Council websites have lists of people you can contact once you find a playgroup that you are interested in joining.



Go on, put yourself out there! As scary as it can be 'dating' for friends as a grown up, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

If you know of any other great ways to meet other London mums, please let us know! We would love to include lots of ways for Mums to connect with each other.
