Introducing :: NOMB Community Neighborhood Groups

Do none of your friends have children the same age as yours? Or have you been wanting to try the new indoor play space in your neighborhood but all of your friends with kids work?

Are you a working mom who wants to arrange playdates for her children on the weekend, but all of the playgroups in your area meet during the work week?

Are you new to the area and looking for recommendations for pediatricians, schools, or family-friendly activities in your area?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (or even if you didn’t), we have exciting news for you! The New Orleans Moms Blog is thrilled to introduce our Community Neighborhood Groups. The primary goal of these groups is to connect moms online, as well as offline, through playdates and events. New Orleans is a big city, y’all. And we want to make it feel a little smaller by creating neighborhood playgroups! Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, our monthly meet-ups will be the perfect way to connect with moms in your area.

We would love to assign a “Mombassador” for each area to help with coordinating these gatherings because YOU know your neighborhood best! If you are interested in volunteering to be your neighborhood Mombassador, please email [email protected]

We currently have 13 neighborhood groups available to join. Don’t see your neighborhood? We’re just starting this program, so please let us know so we can get your area covered. Just click on your neighborhood and ask to join the group!

From there, let the fun begin!

Current Special Interest Groups:

In addition to our Neighborhood groups, we have also added six Special Interest groups.We hope these will be positive, open forums to vent, share resources, and meet new friends.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your kids to make new friends and connections in our community!

We’re excited to check out your neighborhood and make our large community feel a little smaller!

    May you join more than one group? I live in the French Quarter, but I grew up in Uptown. A lot of my mom friends live there and I frequent the Uptown area just as much as I do the FQ.

    Is there a way to join a group without having to sign up for Facebook?

    • Myndee December 5, 2016 at 1:25 pm #

      Hi Megan, I wish there were, but Facebook will not allow access to any group without a Facebook account. We do hope you’ll join us though!!

    This has been such an awesome resource! I’m moving to NOLA in August with my 3 year old daughter and I’m so glad this blog exists. I’ll definitely post my questions on other pages, but as for right now THANK YOU!!!!

    Hi! Who is the admin of the Lakeview/Mid-city moms page? I believe that I was removed without knowing why! Help!
