10 of the Best Places to Meet Other
Moms in Houston

10bestplacestomeetothermomshoustonMommyhood can get lonely after a while, especially if you are used to a lot of adult interaction. Many moms appreciate staying at home with the little ones, but they also miss speaking with adults and doing things besides entertaining, feeding and cleaning up after kids. Often, when moms do have a chance to be with other adults, they find that their own conversation frequently reverts back to stories about the kids and sometimes they feel out of the loop of non-parent society. However, meeting up with other mothers provides adult conversation and support from others who are dealing with the same issues. Here are some suggestions on how to go about meeting other moms in Houston.

1. Stay at Home Moms Meetup Groups

Did you know there are several meetups in the Houston area for stay at home moms? On this site you will find mom groups for just about every area of interest. They meet at various times, anywhere from weekly to monthly and sometimes just for a particular event. Membership in a group can range from just a few to large numbers, depending on the group. This is a wonderful way to get to know other mothers in your area and also an avenue to explore different interests with your kids.

2. Social Toddler

There is no doubt that this is the era of the playgroup. Social Toddler provides a lot of information for moms, including available playgroups in the Houston area. Playgroups don’t just provide a chance for the kids to interact, moms also get to meet each other and share their worlds. Some groups hone in on specific areas of interest, while others are just into fun.

3. Houston Area Mommies

4. Houston Area MOPS

This international organization has groups meeting in your area. Mothers of Preschooler (MOPS) is an organization that is dedicated to supporting mothers through small groups that provide mentoring, support, conversation, and other activities that make mothering fun and less stressful. There are speakers at meetings that offer practical help for common issues. Your group may also teach a new craft that you can share with your children. Joining MOPS can help you feel more confident in your parenting and give you an outlet to socialize with other like-minded women.

5. Mothers of Many Seasons

Champion Forest Baptist Church hosts a group with mothers from all seasons of life. This group encourages moms to prioritize the stuff of motherhood along Biblical principles. It also promotes a closer relationship with Christ as the group studies the Bible and has discussions. Occasionally, a special guest will speak on a topic with special interest geared toward real-world applications for your family. This intergenerational group is a blessing for moms looking for support with mothering and spiritual development.

6. Baby Boot Camp

If you are into fitness and want to meet like-minded moms, you will want to check into Baby Boot Camp. This franchise has fitness classes and training for the on-the-go mom. They offer exercise classes, yoga-inspired stroller fitness, nutrition classes and Strollerfriends, which is a moms group that promotes healthy families.

7. Mocha Moms of South Houston

The Mocha Moms is an open organization which reaches out to all moms who are willing to abide by the mission of the organization. They provide support primarily to at-home mothers of color, however they have a policy of non-exclusivity and they do not discriminate.
