Hi all, my partner and I are due our first baby (in 2 days!!!!) and are keen to try meeting up with other lgbt parents both for our sake and for the baby's. We know one couple with 2 babies who are keen to meet up more but live a wee bit away. I know the lgbt health centre run Rainbow Families but we're not sure if we fancy big days out; just the chance to meet other people for coffee and relax/rant! We're in the Leith/Hillside area, aged 30 and 31 and both work for charities. I'm new to Mumsnet but guessing you can send me a private message?
Hi the LGBT centre group is lovely but quite focused on big days out. The Glasgow group is much less formal but your in Edinburgh so that's not much help I live in the middle so have been to both. Good luck with the imminent arrival!
The Glasgow group was just set up as a Facebook group which attempted to cover Scotland but most members are Glasgow based pm your email address and I'll add you as a friend on fb and can add you to the group. We tend to just meet up far people's house or at softplay or the park, I've not managed it for ages but it's always very welcoming
Hi - Beverleith, your new arrival must be here by now! V exciting!!! Hope all is well We have a wee daughter (4 months) and are based in Edinburgh. If you're still looking to meet up with people, please message me.
