Press Release

We are excited to announce the all new is now live - having recently undergone a major design makeover and rebrand.

Mums from all areas and across the UK have found friendship with other mums in their area via our web based application which provides a simple way for mums to find friends for themselves (ie. similar in age, age of child and circumstances) in their own local areas of the UK. Mums can communicate via secure private messaging and in forums. They can also start a meet up for mums in their area or arrange to meet up one to one at any public venue. By finding friends for themselves they also find playmates for their children.

The founder of MumsMeetUp, Caroline Reid, a mum of 2, said:

Becoming a mum is one of the most emotional life changing events a woman can experience and it should be the most exciting and happiest. However, all too often, after the whirlwind of visitors coming to see baby settles down, partners return to work, the first few months of getting to know baby passes, mums (often sleep deprived) can all too often begin to find themselves feeling quite lonely and isolated - most have left colleagues at work, feel cut off from their usual social circle and time out with partners can become non-existent.

Mums have to find new ways to socialise in the daytime with their babies, not only for companionship for themselves but as a way to find playmates for their children. So, they may try going to local mother and baby groups but even this may not be easy as they walk into rooms full of mums and babies, often split into lots of little groups of mums busy chatting away. The other mums may appear to be quite cliquey to new mums coming in - this can be because once mums do befriend other mums they often have so much to chat about they can, quite unintentionally, become oblivious to others around them outside their little groups.

MumsMeetUp provides a solution for mums to find others and connect in a quick and simple way and many mums from all over the UK have now benefitted from finding friends for themselves and playmates for their children via which is not just for mums of babies, it is for mums with children of all ages.

MumsMeetUp provides a quick and simple way for mums to find and meet other mums similar by age of child or circumstances (such as young, 40+, working, single parent mums etc.) in their own local areas of the UK within just a few clicks.

Mums of children with disabilities are able to meet other local mums whose children have similar medical conditions and expat mums in the UK can meet other local mums originating from the same overseas countries.

Members maintain complete anonymity whilst becoming acquainted via private online messaging or group discussions. In addition, members can arrange their own offline Meet Ups for mums at any public venue and invite other members to join.

This is all free to Mums of children ranging in age from babies to teens, as well as mums to be.

MumsMeetUp was built by the Owner, Caroline. She has a child with a disability and has felt the advantages of getting together with others whose children have a similar disability, not only for the parents but also for the children as it is of great benefit to children to realise they are not alone with a disability.

She believes this also applies to other circumstances, such as divorced or widowed mums etc., as well as all mums as it's a way for them to find friends for their children and at the same time know who the parents are.
