We have regular relaxed and informal discussions and get-togethers for mums and mums-to-be.  Bring a support person or partner, if you like, and of course babies and children are always welcome.  Some of our meetups are online on Zoom, with in-person get-togethers too.  Check the calendar tab for what's coming up.

With the current restrictions on in-person gatherings, many local groups across Australia are running virtual and online get-togethers. You can view our national calendar of events to find a full listing, and attend a group anywhere in Australia.
