10 Great Sites for Chatting With Other Moms in 2020

Meet and connect with other moms online

While it’s reassuring to get advice from pregnancy and childcare experts, sometimes it's helpful to hear the opinion of other women who have experienced parenting. There is no shortage of places to do so online. Go online to connect with other moms through mom-specific chat rooms, community forums, Facebook groups, and Twitter parties. Below are a few of the best ones to check out.

As with any online activity, exercise caution about sharing personal or sensitive information with strangers.

Community Forums for Moms

The benefit of a community forum is that it's structured and searchable with social media algorithms, so you won't miss content. Popular forums include:

  • Babycenter: This site contains thousands of groups about pregnancy, babies, and raising children. Forum features are also available on their mobile apps.
  • The Bump: This forum connects women who want to discuss pregnancy, babies, and toddlers up to 24 months old. It features message boards based on location, so virtual conversations can be turned into in-person meetups.
  • BabyBumps: This Reddit forum has attracted thousands of users. It's meant for pregnant women but is a great place for mothers and mothers-to-be to discuss anything on their mind.

Facebook and Twitter

Facebook has become a major platform for discussion groups on a variety of topics, including parenting. Groups can be open, allowing anyone to join, or closed, requiring the moderator to approve membership. Closed groups will state as much and require people to request to join the group.

  • Fussy Baby Site Support Group: This group includes more than 10,000 members and is a resource for moms dealing with fussy babies.
  • Make It Tips for Special Needs: With more than 6,000 members, this group is a terrific place to connect with other moms who have children with special needs.

Twitter is another resource to connect with other moms to share experiences. Some Twitter users host scheduled chats, known as Twitter parties, where moms participate in a live conversation.

  • @Traveling Moms: Going on the road? Get advice on traveling with kids, and meet other moms, by joining the weekly Twitter party every Monday at 9-10 p.m. ET.
