    Default New to Melbourne

    Hello mums! My Husband and I are moving to Melbourne from Sydney with our gorgeous 8 month old. I'm very excited about our move but am dreading leaving my fantastic mother's group. I've never lived in Melbourne before so would appreciate any suggestions for joining mothers groups here and/or would love to catch up with other mum's for coffee.

    It can actually be difficult joining a private mothers group unless you know someone, as they aren't advertised as such.

    But you can search for playgroups in your area. Often these are started by mothers groups anyway.

    You could also join 'MeetUp' (google) and search for groups in our area. I did this as my mothers group fizzed out unfortunately, and it's been great!

    Pesca77 thanks for the suggestion, I'll do that.

    I know how hard it can be, which is sad because my mother's group was such a rock through the first months.

    Thana again
