Making Friends, With MOLO Mates

Making Friends, With MOLO Mates

Making friends when you’re a mum can be so hard and rolling up to the local baby group can make you can feel like a kid on the first day school; a bit lost and lonely. That loneliness can continue with many mums feeling isolated at home on maternity leave and later as they juggle work and motherhood. Having a support network of women who really understand what it’s like can make the world of difference. That’s why we set up MOLO Mates, so members of The Motherload® can meet like-minded mums who live near them. We’ve seen hundreds of mums make friends through the group but absolutely loved this post from Toni Burgum:

“Two months ago me and six other MOLOs started talking on WhatsApp! 13.5k messages, lots of playdates and one night out later and I couldn’t imagine my life without them. Thank you Kate and everyone else who has built The Motherload® because without this page and them I’d be lost. We all met on MOLO Mates.”

Toni had hooked up with Natasha Cowan Graham, Amy Worlock, Gemma Friend, Beth Handy, Stacey Forsyth and Danni Horseman – it looks like they had a pretty epic night out together!

Thanks so much to all of you for sharing the love with us – we wish you many happy nights out and playdates in the future!
