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.
We currently have multiple, active New Orleans neighborhood groups available for New Orleans moms to join. Don’t see your neighborhood? Just click on your neighborhood and ask to join the group!
From there, let the fun begin!

This is a great idea!!!
I agree 100%
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.
Yes, of course!
I did! Thank You both! 🙂
love this idea!
Is there a way to join a group without having to sign up for Facebook?
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!!
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!!!!
Hi! Who is the admin of the Lakeview/Mid-city moms page? I believe that I was removed without knowing why! Help!
If I’m moving to Irish Chanel, which would be the best group to join?
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!
Do any of you wonderful Moms know of any grandparent play groups in the new orleans area?
