Having other moms to talk with about your job as a mom is really important. Being a mom is hard work, and can be very isolating.
If you’re a new mom and home alone with your newborn or toddler and need some mom time and a community, joining a Local Mom Group nearby is a great thing to do.
As your kids grow up, you’ll rely on each other to help you navigate the changes at every phase, especially when mothers of preschoolers continue to need each other’s support. Having other moms to touch base with is a must.

How you can find local MOPs Groups
When you think of a local Moms group, often the MOPS International organization comes to mind. Many meetup groups are formed at local churches, but they don’t exist at every church.
They can also meet outside of a church environment, which makes it welcoming for all non-religious moms too.
Whether you are a soon-to-be mom, first-time mom, or seventh-time mom, getting a MOPS International membership can be life-changing and provides a safe space for stay-at-home moms.
MOPS include moms of all types: adoptive moms, young moms, seasoned moms, military moms, stepmoms, or any other type of mom.
With a MOPS Mothers membership, you can connect and meet with other moms in a coffee shop, church, park, living room, or over Facetime or Zoom.
To find a list of your local ones, just add your zip code and search through the options you receive.
