My partner and I have 3 wonderful children under 2 and would love for them to meet other LGBT families. It would be nice for my partner and I to meet some other like- minded mums who live in and around Berkshire and not feel so isolated and think we're the only 'gay family in the village'.

Please get in touch

Hello ColetteOS,

Hope its OK to message on here. I just saw that you are expecting and I wanted to reach out as I am casting for a groundbreaking documentary series about the science behind babies development in their first year, and would love to hear from any parents due to give birth/recently given birth.

It combines ground-breaking scientific revelation with emotionally engaging stories. Each episode will be filmed using a combination of observational documentary and pioneering filming techniques using the newest visual technologies to show the miraculous first year of life as never seen before. Highly informative, the show will appeal to both to parents and a broader audience, interested in what makes us who we are.

Each episode in the series will outline a pivotal milestone in a baby’s life. For example, we are looking at developments such as sleep, sitting up, crawling and speaking. We are working with baby experts and scientists from top universities and institutions that will help us to underpin the content of the series.

If you would like to find out more, please do email and one of the team will get in contact.

Many Thanks,
Raimy Little
Casting Researcher

Hi Everyone, I'm Colette, mummy to our little boy Oscar. We also have our second monkey due in July 2017 (my wife is carrying this time) so we have an exciting few months ahead and would love to meet other two mummy families with similar interests in Berkshire. I haven’t been able to find many groups specifically aimed for same-sex parents so have created a new FB group and would love this to become a great network of support for us parents but also our kids as they grow olders.

FB Group Name: LGBT Families Berkshire

Hi All,
Not sure if youre all still around but parents to be in Burnham. Only 8 weeks bit just had scan and all was good with heartbeat and good measurements. I noticed a few of you are in Maidenhead so just over the river from us. Did a group ever get started?

Jane3011 Sun 15-May-16 11:45:43

Hi Dendrogirl, I think that's a really good idea. We would definitely be up for meeting others- let us know when the new group is set up.

My wife and I are in Slough and have a six month old baby. Would love to meet up, maybe enjoy a picnic in the park somewhere.

Hey Jane3011 and Higginsfam

There seems to be a void in meetups/groups in the south bucks/Berks area, I was thinking of starting a group via the meetup app. Just wanted to know your thoughts?

Jane3011 Fri 08-Apr-16 20:14:08

Hi, we have recently become parents and would be interested in networking/ meeting up with other same sex couples who are parents/planning to become parents in the Berkshire area. Haven't been able to find any groups but hopefully something will come from this thread.

Dendrogirl Thu 07-Apr-16 01:42:36


We are in marlow. Looking to start the journey of a family this year, struggling to find any groups/networking in bucks/Berks/Oxon area. Would be great to create something to have a social with those at any stage of same sex parenting.

Hello! realise this thread is pretty old but just in case - we are two mums in the maidenhead area and would love to meet/chat to some other Lesbian mums. If anyone is interested or knows of any existing groups, please can you reply!

Thank you!!!

Hey All.

My partner and I have just moved to Wokingham. We have a 15mo and a 3mo.

Would be great to meet others.

Can't seem to find the FB group however?

Hi all,
Dont know if it's a bit late to be joining this forum, but myself and my partner have a 9wk old and live near Reading and we're looking to meet other families in the area...? :-)

Hello all,

My partner and I live in East Berkshire and have a 7 month old son. We're now looking to meet other LGBT parents in the local area and are interested in meeting up.

Is there a regular meet up we can come along to?

All the best.

Kitjo Sun 12-May-13 13:53:37

Hi all we are currently Wimbledon but in process of moving to windsor, or nearby. We have son 7 and daughter 5 and would be happy to meet up or join your group.

Vicky, I've searched on Facebook for Gay Families Berkshire and can't seem to find the page. Am I spelling it correctly? C.

You are all more than welcome to join us at :-)

PefMoo5 Thu 04-Apr-13 15:24:04

Ps.... We're near Wokingham

PefMoo5 Thu 04-Apr-13 15:04:54

Hi All, my apologies for the very slow reply! I had almost given up hope that there were other families like us in Berkshire (which I thought must have been highly unlikely!) so haven't checked this post for quite some time. Thank you all for getting in touch. I have now set up an email address and a Facebook group that we can all use to communicate and keep in touch if you want to. The details are as follows:
Gay Families Berkshire is the FB group if you all want to join and talk on there. Alternatively email address is

Hope to hear from and meet you all soon.

Best wishes

My partner and I are going to start treatment in September after our civil union. We are in east Berkshire near slough, would be great to hear any advice about clinics.

Cazdk Sat 09-Mar-13 16:40:11

My wife and I are currently trying for our first child using a donor via a clinic and I've searched for hours looking for any kind of information or people in similar situations in the Berkshire area, so was very pleased to find this site! It's amazing how little there is out there when there must be people in a similar situation. We're yet to know the outcome of our treatment but would be good to be in contact with others going through/having gone through a similar experience.... Caroline

We are a lesbian couple and have also recently moved to Bracknell and we have just started the adoption process to create our own would be great to meet/chat to others locally! smile
