Hi,

I have a three week old girl and am finding it a little isolating being at home with baby all day!
Can anyone recommend a group for mums with very young babies in Greenwich or Blackheath? Or if anyone is in a similar position and would like to meet up for a coffee my email is molly_knight@hotmail.com.

Thanks!
Molly

Hi Molly!

I'm still waiting for mine to arrive. Have you joined the NCT? They have post-natal classes as well as ante-natal where you could meet other Mum's in the area. The local NCT website should have links to groups etc. I know their newsletter has loads of advertisments for things going on in the borough.

Good luck!

Hi Molly,
My DD is 5 weeks today, so similar age to your little girl.
I live in Eltham so not far from you. I haven't started any groups yet, but i have met up with a couple of other mumsnet mums locally and you'd be more than welcome to join us.
Anyway I'll email you shortly but dd unsettled at the moment so must go.

Hi, I am also fairly new to the area with no parent friends locally, so would love to get out and about and meet other new mums. My little boy (first baby) is 7 weeks old. Do also let me know if there's anything I can join in on, thanks

Hi, I am new in here and just heard about the site few days ago. I feel so isolated and kind of lonely at the moment as my family and friends dont live near. I have a 9 months old boy and I would love to make new friends in the area please let me know about any ativities we could join in.

Thanks

Hi everyone,

I'd love to meet you all, but am a bit of an impostor as not yet given birth! I'm due in May, so hope to meet you all then...

In the meantime, did any of you attend the NCT classes in Greenwich? If so, what did you think of them - was it worthwhile?

MrsMogwai Sat 22-Jan-11 19:33:45

Hi Tigerbear,

I'm due in April. I'm booked to start NCT classes end of this month, happy to feedback after. I've heard quite a lot of good things about the classes - mostly about how helpful it is meeting other people in the same situation rather than the content of the classes though!

My husband and I did Nct classes at St Michael's church in Blackheath in Sept last year and have met 7 amazing couples. The boys go out for drinks and the girls + babies see each other for coffee/lunch every week. We aso email all the time. It is great to have other people going through the same thing at the same time. Fab support network. Best £250 we spent preparing for the baby. Can't recommend it highly enough xxx

you need to go to the baby cafe at the church on court lane in eltham - united reform church i think. anyway wednesday mornings. its fab. really well run. brilliant support. great people . its a breastfeeding cafe group but doesn't matter if you don't breast feed either

Hi Kalo12, can I go with my 9 months babe to
the place at the Church on court lane or it is just for yonger babes???

I would say exactly the same as londonbump. Did ours in Greenwich and the 8 couples are in v regular contact. The babes are 6 months now and the girls meet once a week for a catch up but often have other activities eg: swimming together during the week. It has been invaluable as a way of meeting other people in the area and it has been v reassuring to spend time with other first time parents with children of the same age to compare notes and just hang out. I've learned more from my peer group than reading any manual - you get the benefit of 7 other peoples reading/googling/experience/top tips received. Best £250 I ever spent too.
Re the course - honestly you could learn just as much from a book and our instructor wasn't too keen on promoting medical intervention. For the most part we were all about "when can I ask for the epidural". I learned more about breastfeeding and got more reassurance from Mumsnet than the NCT frankly.
