Find Mothers Groups in Brisbane to Connect with New Friends

Take the stress out of parenthood by connecting and bonding with like-minded mums and dads. We’ve compiled a list of playgroups and community groups in alphabetical order for you to check out!

Where do all the mothers groups Brisbane meet? Glad you asked! We’re here to help you find like-minded women to socialise with.

Where can I find a mothers group Brisbane?

Playgroup Queensland QLD Join the fun before they turn one
Playgroup for parents, babies and toddlers

When you first have your baby you’ll be connected with your local maternal child health centre. There will be a nurse for you to check in with who will not only give you some timely advice and support but also connect you with local mothers who have also recently had newborns.

For some, this is a fantastic system that brings with it a whole new social outlet and a way to connect with other parents.

For others, however, this doesn’t work. This could be because…

  • You move to a new area after your child is out of the newborn phrase
  • You can’t access your MCHN or Centre
  • Your MCHN or Centre has a long waiting list that you miss out on
  • You don’t ‘click’ with the mothers you’ve been connected with

Never fear! This is not the end! You can look into one of any number of playgroups, community groups, or mothers’ groups Brisbane that haven’t been set up via the maternal health network. Here are a few ideas to help you out…

All of these mothers’ groups Brisbane will meet on different days so when you identify the place you’d like to connect with, contact ahead of time to make sure their schedule matches yours!

Mothers groups Brisbane – help us out!

There has to be more that we’ve missed.

  2. There’s a great mothers group that meets on Thursday mornings in Paddington that is run by an Occupational Therapist. So good that you can bring your baby and ask questions!!
