    Default Playgroup in the Wollongong/Illawarra region, NSW

    Hi,
    I'm posting this here in the hope that there is more traffic, otherwise I'll move it to the playgroup/get together section.

    As per the topic, is anyone interested in joining a natural/attachment parenting playgroup/mothers group in the Wollongong region?

    The closest AP groups are either St George/Sutherland Shire or Nowra and I am wanting to establish a group here.

    As much as I like the playgroup I take my 17 month old son to during the week, it would be nice to talk to like minded parents and not feel so isolated.

    Reply or PM me if you are interested :-)

    I have an eight month old girl and an almost three year old boy. I've been thinking of doing the same thing and starting up a group in the northern suburbs. I'm in Coledale - whereabouts are you?

    I've been reading Robin Grille's 'Heart to Heart Parenting' where he talks about how important it is to raise kids with lots of support - in community, not in isolation. It's making me miss my old Sydney AP group. So I'm pretty keen! I'm going to put a sign up at Thirroul food coop and the community centre. Maybe if we both do that around our area we can get some other people on board. Send me a message if you're still interested.

    Hi georgiep - thank you so much for your message, I had all but given up hope on finding some AP parents in the area.

    I live in Mt St Thomas although I'm willing to travel. I think northern suburbs would be a good base for a group. I havent put any signs up yet about a group as I thought I would see if anyone was interested first. By the way, I love Coledale (and the northern suburbs), especially the markets!

    I also have Robin's book although I haven't started reading it yet, I'm looking forward to it.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Hi ladies,

    In a google search for 'wollongong mothers groups' I came across this thread. I am due to have my first baby in June and am about to move from Sydney to Cordeaux Heights in the next couple of weeks. I'm really interested in attachment parenting as it best seems to fit my personal ethos and am also looking for other like-minded new parents to share my experiences with. I don't have any close friends with babies and would love to find a mums group to join in the area. Obviously my bub won't be playgroup age for some time but do you know of any similar 'new mums' groups in the Illawarra??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Shelley

    Hi Shelley,
    Congrats on your pregnancy. Georgie (orevious poster) and I have been in contact about starting a group down here as the closest natural parenting groups are at Sutherland (north) or Nowra (south) of Wollongong. We are yet to work out times/ days/location but please feel more than welcome to come along even before bubs is born - we would love as many parents to meet up as possible. Also, even though I mentioned it was a playgroup, it's more of a meet up point/support system for parents who like to follow one, a few or all parts of natural parenting. PM if you are interested!
    Good luck with the move - you'll be a few suburbs away from me, as we are at Mt St Thomas.
