A MESH moms membership connects you with parents in your community. We’re an antidote to the isolation and overwhelm that so often accompanies new motherhood - and isn’t talked about enough! We help you build a support network as you navigate your way through the early postpartum and newborn phase to the preschool years. The MESH moms community is a resource for sharing challenges and successes, forming friendships, learning from child development experts, and building trust in your own intuition. We also offer access to special events, advice to find awesome Mommy and Me classes, and discounts with local businesses.
MESH moms is a group intended for mothers and/or expecting mothers in the Atlanta Metro Area who wish to communicate, interact and organize with each other. Our current offerings are geared for mothers of children ages 0-3.
New Members Must:
Congratulations! Pregnancy is a great time to connect with other new and expecting mothers, and you are very welcome to become a member before your child is born. Our online forums are especially helpful for expecting moms: they offer advice and recommendations for everything from birth plans to breastfeeding, as well as resources for finding nannies and childcare. Join us here: Sign-up
The school years open up a whole new world of joys and challenges for parents. Since we’re a new organization, we don’t yet have any programming for parents of preschoolers, but building out resources for ages 3-5 is our next goal. We intend to offer parent education talks, workshops on going back to work, and a preschool fair to introduce you to the wide range of early education opportunities in the Atlanta Metro Area. Please join our mailing list to be the first to know when our offerings for parents of preschool age kids become available.
Actively participate! Attend our in-person activities and join the Peer Groups that align with your interests/affinities. We encourage you to share your thoughts and concerns, listen to other mothers' experiences, offer support and encouragement, and take advantage of opportunities to learn from each other. Putting yourself “out there” at our parent meetups takes some courage, but it’s the surest way to find genuine community.
We encourage all members to participate in our Playgroup Walks, Mom's Night Out events, Girls just Wanna Have Lunch, and Hangouts at the Park. We also occasionally meetup for mommy + me classes at places like HippoHopp, The Bunny Hive, Gymboree Classes, Go Fish Swim school, The Little Gym, and TinyTowne.
Peer Groups are smaller groups within the MESH moms community that are age-based, location-based or special interest groups. Each mother's group has a Group Ambassador who serves as your point of contact for group events, etc.
At this time, our age-based groups include the following birthdate cohorts:
Location-based groups are currently organized as follows:
Special Interest groups currently include:
Once you activate your membership, you can browse all the groups and join the one(s) you wish from our Membership Portal.
The MESH moms calendar is full of activities for kids and families, plus some for adults only! We have large scale, community-wide events, along with regular meetups for the various Peer Groups - some with and some without kids. We also offer educational opportunities for members, both in-person and online.
Some of our favorite Mom’s events and meetups at parks and playgrounds have been at Piedmont Park, Chastain Park, Morgan Falls, Riverside Park, Ashford Park, Garden Hills Park, Little Nancy Creek Park, Historic Fourth Ward Park, Wills Park, Bunten Road Park, Webb Bridge Park.
For our coffee meetups, we gather at places like Cafe Intermezzo, Brash Coffee, Dancing Goats Coffee, WAVE 3 Coffee, Chocolate Buckheat and Cafe Lucia.
Some of the restaurants we visit for Mom's meals are Another Broken Egg Cafe, Egg Harbor Cafe, Cafe Intermezzo, The Chastain, Bistro Niko, and Anis Cafe & Bistro.
We offer several points of online connection. We have a community-wide Discussion Forum where members can post and read about mom- or family-related topics: advice/opinions on child rearing, recommendations for various products or services, etc. You can ask just about anything (within reason; we ask you to use your best judgment), and you’ll almost always get some great answers. You can also attach links, images, videos or files with your post.
We have a Child Care forum where members can inquire about and recommend nannies, babysitters, doulas, night nurses, OBs and Midwives at Piedmont Atlanta Hopsital, Northside Hospital, Emory University Hospital Midtown, etc. We also discuss childcare solutions, Atlanta city and suburban daycares, differences between at-home daycares versus institutional daycares etc.
The Peer Groups each have a dedicated online chat.
We also host an online Marketplace which allows the community to post items for sale.
We love connecting with local business owners. For more information about our Community Partners program, please send an email to email@example.com with your business information, including your email address and website link. To become a partner, we ask that you offer our members a minimum discount of 20%.
We’re always looking for moms to serve as Group Ambassadors to help us grow the community. In this role, you’ll assist in organizing events, recruiting new members and, most importantly, staying connected with the members in your group. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to find out more incl. compensation for your time and efforts in supporting our community.
