Our MadeForMums Pregnancy forum and Birth Clubs forum are where you can come to chat to other parents-to-be about the ups and downs of pregnancy, as you experience the amazing process of growing a new life inside you. It’s where you can come to celebrate the things that are going great; it’s where you can come to have a moan about the things that aren’t.
Both forums are places where you can make friends with others who are pregnant at the same time as you, compare symptoms, ask each other questions, share advice and find some really great support, as you all journey together through the next 9 months.
So, we know we’re biased but we think our MadeForMums Pregnancy and Birth Clubs forums are the best forums out there because they’re…
- Managed and moderated by parents who care. Our Community Managers are mums who’ve been there and understand. They take a personal interest in welcoming you as a a new member, signposting you to great threads and trusted sources of advice and alerting you to product tests and Baby Show discounts
- Safe spaces. Unlike a Facebook group, you can post under an anonymous user name. So, even from the earliest days of pregnancy, you can join in and share experiences without worrying that family and friends will find out about the baby you’re expecting before you’re ready to tell them.
- Supportive and friendly. Our forums are warm, caring and supportive places. It doesn’t matter where you come from, how old you are, what you situation is, you’ll find others who want to help and encourage you. We don’t allow nasty comments, spammers or personal attacks – we’re all in this pregnancy ‘thing’ together and we think the least we can do is show each other some proper respect.
Join one of our Birth Club forums
If you’re newly pregnant (congratulations!), we’d love to see you in our Birth Clubs forums. There, you can meet and chat with other women at the same stage of pregnancy as you, and share your 9-month journey together right up to the birth – and beyond! We’re really not kidding: the women from our January 2010 Birth Club formed such a tight bond, they still meet up in real life over a decade later!
