"What a lifeline!
My Mummy Buddy gives the best friendly advice - I really don't know what I would have done without her!"
We know how overwhelming, isolating and lonely it can feel as a new mum.
So, we have created a
FREE award-winning peer-to-peer
buddy support programme
to help alleviate many of the concerns that motherhood may bring.
Our dedicated volunteers match Buddies based on a number of key criteria and our weekly Instagram topics help to guide your chats. We do the work for you and take the 'awkward' out of meeting other mums - one less thing for you to worry about!
A Mummy Buddy is a couple of months or 'a stage' ahead of you in their parenting journey. They provide peer support and a friendly face to a local new mum or mum-to-be, helping them to settle into their motherhood adventure.
Mummy Buddies really make a difference by drawing on their own experience of all things baby, offering support, tips and local knowledge (i.e. the best baby classes, buggy friendly coffee shops).
Feel reassured, supported & connected.
“When I had my baby it was an incredibly overwhelming experience - I didn’t know what to expect and I felt so confused. I joined the Buddy programme and my Mummy Buddy has been an absolute lifesaver" - Nadine, Wimbledon
Are you Pregnant or
a New Mum?
Mummy Buddies offer a local, friendly face to help settle you in to motherhood. They will share their tips and knowledge about being a mum along with invaluable local advice from the craziest baby classes to the best buggy friendly cafes in town. You can meet up or chat via WhatsApp, whatever suits you best.

How it works
Sign up either for a Mummy Buddy, to be a Mummy Buddy, or both! All you need to do is complete the simple sign up form and we'll start matching you.
Once we've found a suitable match, we will connect you both via WhatsApp with a welcome message. The Mummy Buddy (the one who's a stage ahead) then takes the lead in arranging to meet (either face-to-face where safe to do so, or online)
We will be sharing weekly topics over on our instagram account @mummy_buddy. Please follow us there - you can use these topics to prompt your chats.
If you live in one of our 'Club' areas, you'll also receive invites to our regular get togethers and expert led sessions (please note - a membership fee or event fee may apply). Activities are limited due to COVID-19. To find our Clubs, click HERE.
You continue to meet, chat, see what life is really like with a baby or child who is slightly older than yours.
You eat cake. You ask your Buddy questions in the middle of the night. Your Buddy continues to reassure you and support you during the tough times.
You chat more. You eat more cake (virtually!)

"I love my NCT group but we're the blind leading the blind when it comes to advice and tips! I found the real pearls of wisdom came from parents of older babies we met at playgroups and classes along the way."
Don't just take it from us, let the buddies do the talking!
