Nashville Mom Groups: Find Mommy Friends in Nashville, TN
Find Mommy Friends in Nashville
You just scraped play-doh off your carpet, found a fish stick in your couch, and are waiting for your 2 year old's meltdown over nap time to end. Ah, the joys of motherhood. It's full of ups and downs, stressful moments, and of course happy times. Mental health experts agree that support from friends can help make life a little easier.
Finding support from other moms can definitely make a difference in motherhood. However sometimes it can be challenging to make new friends, especially if you are a stay-at-home mom. If you are new to the Nashville area (or even if you aren't) here are a few Mom's groups to consider.
Funny MOPS Song
One fantastic resource for moms in the Nashville area is MOPS. It stands for "Mothers of Preschoolers." If you have children ages 5 and under, this is a great program to join. There are currently three MOPS groups meeting in Nashville, and one in Old Hickory and one in Hendersonville. At MOPS meetings you will have time to socialize, listen to a guest speaker, and much more. To find the group closest to you visit the MOPS website here.
