View Full Version : Canberra Young Mums
Hi, I'm a 22 year old mum living in Canberra, I'm thinking of starting a mums group just for mums under the age of 25-ish as there is absolutely NOTHING in Canberra which caters to young mothers and it's not easy to feel comfortable at mothers groups and playgroups etc when you're the only one under 30 (as I've found at my mothers group)!
If anyone is interested please feel free to message me as I'd like to know if it's going to be worth setting up.
That sounds fabulous. I'm currently 21, and 17 weeks pregnant. I'd certainly be interested in something like this.
That's awesome, I've got a couple other girls who are interested too, I'll let you know once we have something a bit more concrete organised. Also, if you're interested I found a group on facebook called Young Mums Group Canberra, it's only a new group, seems like it's trying to get enough interested people together first before starting up regular get togethers. Don't feel like you have to have your baby first before joining something, expectant mums are more than welcome, plus we all love passing on advice to anyone willing to listen!
Hey My name is Kristen and I am 21 years old and have a 11 month old daughter and I am desperately seeking a young mothers group for under 25's. I am a fulltime mother who also goes to uni. I am interested in joining your little group and if you could let me know where and when you meet up that would be great! my email is firstname.lastname@example.org Look forward to hearing from you. :wave:
hey guys im Lana :) Ive got a 2 year old, and im 19(20 later this year) Ive actually been referred to a group for young families i can give you the number of the organiser, shes looking for more new people to join this 16 week course, it meets every tuesday, and there are care workers, they look after the kids, gives us a chance to chat and have a coffee while the kids are being looked after, it usually runs from 10am till 2pm like i said on tuesdays, and its usually in kippax, and last run they organised for us all to be picked up and dropped home
Her name is gina and her number is 0417459297
Im going to be in the next course as well (hoping *fingers crossed*) but ive had 3 of my friends go through it and say it was a great experience
alternately im open to meeting up with anyone else that wants to :) i live in civic and can get most places (i dont drive so parks and stuff would be awesome :)
Would love to meet some of you ladies
That sounds awesome, I'll definitely give her a call and look into it. My biggest problem is that I live out in Bungendore and don't drive (yet! fingers crossed that I'll have my p's in a couple of months!). But I've got a few different options for getting into Queanbeyan, so hopefully I'll be able to organise something.
I'll definitely let everyone know if I end up setting up an under 25s mums group, hopefully I have some success with my driving test lol!
I am 23 and almost 28 weeks pregnant....I would love to join something like this as Im finding as im sure some of you are, that my immediate friends etc arent at the same stage as I am and dont quite understand the challenges which lie ahead......
Would be great to get to know more young mums for advice and support
Look forward to talking soon
I am currently building in bungendore but live in Holder, ACT I have a car and can pick you up if you would like! I think we should all meet up in the near future. We could arrange to meet up at monkey mania at Brand depot?? Let me know by email if you would like to come sometime next week. email@example.com:smiliedance:
That would be awesome, thanks so much for the offer! I'm up for meeting if everyone else is! I'm available any day of the week, when's good for everyone else?
No worries. I can meet up anyday but tuesdays. So how about Wednesday next week???:thumbsup:
Wow, I never realised how much I say the word awesome before! Lol, I must be watching too much 'How I Met Your Mother' haha.
Wednesday next week works for me, how bout everyone else??
Also, I can think of a couple of girls on facebook who might be interested in meeting up as well, I'll let them know and see if they can make it too.
Well girls id love to ome out this week....however my boyfriend lives in tassie and im going down to visit him for 3(ish) weeks, but i'll definately be up for something when i get back :D
Hi Everyone who is a young mum in canberra and interested in attending a group. We have decided to meet at Glebe Park in the City at 10am. Bring snacks and a rug! See you there!:raspberry:
Hi girls I am another younger mum in Canberra :)
I am Kim, 23 with a 3 year old son :)
My husband and I live on the south side of canberra..
If anyone would like to catch up and let our kiddies play we would love to meet you :)
Im a full time mum so always have time :)
Hi to all the young mums out there, we've decided to set up weekly get togethers in Glebe Park at 10am every Wednesday. Anyone interested in attending is welcome to come along but as it gets closer to winter you might want to message me to double check the location, I'm not sure Glebe Park's gonna be so great in 2 degree weather!!
Same goes for any young mums who stumble across this page in a couple of years, I'm sure we'll still be doing some sort of regular get togethers, so just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Look forward to seeing you all there!!
Just updating this post and letting everyone know that we now regularly meet up every Wednesday from 11-1pm at the Youth in the City centre in Civic. You can find more info as well as directions etc at our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/canberrayoungparents (http://www.facebook.com/canberrayoungparents)
