  3. Does anyone know of a new mom’s group that is currently meeting? I know this thread is a bit old.


    1. Hi Traci,

      Most of the groups on this list I know for a fact are still active- I did see the new moms group link was broken, so that one specifically I guess is no longer active. But, if you join the Bronx and Westchester Moms group on FB to meet other moms and then the Tots on the Go, they have meets up pretty much every week.


      1. I’m holding new mom groups in the Bronx. Right now we meet on Friday mornings but during the summer will shift to weekends. If you’d like to join and spread the word my meetup page is

        Or if that link doesn’t work you can see my group and register at It’s an upcoming event on the first page. Currently only for 6wks bc then the meeting time will change. Please spread the word to other new Bronx mommas!! I’d love to meet you all with your little ones.


  4. Thank you for creating this helpful list. Being a new mom is so isolating at times, so knowing where to reach and connect with other new mom and dads is so vital.
