Do none of your New Orleans friends have children the same age as yours? Or have you been wanting to try the new indoor play space in your neighborhood but all of your friends with kids work?

Are you a working mom who wants to arrange playdates for her children on the weekend, but all of the playgroups in your area meet during the work week?

Are you new to the New Orleans area and looking for recommendations for pediatricians, schools, or family-friendly activities in your area?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (or even if you didn’t), we have exciting news for you! New Orleans Mom is thrilled to introduce our Community Neighborhood Groups. New Orleans is a big city, y’all. And we want to make it feel a little smaller by creating these neighborhood Facebook groups! Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, our neighborhood groups will be the perfect way to connect with moms in your area.

How to make friends in New Orleans

Marie is the owner of Little Hometown, a company specializing in locally themed baby swaddles and apparel. Prior to opening her business, Marie was a professional event planner turned stay-at-home mom. She spent nearly a decade living in New York City, where she met her husband, Jeff (a New England native). Early in their relationship, Marie told Jeff that New Orleans is the only place where she would want to raise her children. As soon as she got pregnant, they started shopping for houses. They moved back in December of 2012, welcomed their son in 2013 and their daughter in 2015. Marie now spends her days entertaining her kids with silly songs, desperately attempting to stay organized, and balance her life as a work-at-home mom.


  1. May you join more than one group? I live in the French Quarter, but I grew up in Uptown. A lot of my mom friends live there and I frequent the Uptown area just as much as I do the FQ.

    • Hi Megan, I wish there were, but Facebook will not allow access to any group without a Facebook account. We do hope you’ll join us though!!

  2. This has been such an awesome resource! I’m moving to NOLA in August with my 3 year old daughter and I’m so glad this blog exists. I’ll definitely post my questions on other pages, but as for right now THANK YOU!!!!

  3. Seems like it’s really difficult to meet moms with toddlers. And every support group is virtual which doesn’t help with socializing at all!
