Meetup for Mums and Babies

meet other mums

Wednesdays at 12am at the Castleknock Community Centre.  Drop in.  All welcome.

 Come and meet other mums for friendship and support.  

You may be the only ones in your circle of friends to have a baby right now.  Perhaps you do not have any family living close by who can offer good practical and emotional support. Maybe you are looking for other like-minded mums to share stories and tips with.  Do you just want to get out of the house and have adult company during your maternity leave?  Did you have a rough start to being a mum, perhaps you or your baby have health issues which are making it difficult to enjoy your maternity leave.  Come and join our friendly, relaxed group.
