Welcome to First Time Moms - East Bay. Come meet other first time moms who are experiencing all of the same new and exciting challenges! We meet about 2 to 3 times a week to chat, swap stories, get tips, and get out of the house. We plan a variety of activities which include walks, park play-dates, lunches, happy hours, coffee, fitness for mommy and baby, as well as beauty and spa appointments. Local attractions are also included for those new to the area. Children are welcome to all meetups unless specified in the meetups description. We hope to see you soon!
To keep our community going feel free to suggest a meetup especially if you do not see any times that work for you. Odds are other moms are on your schedule too. Please include a date, time, location (address), title and description for your suggestion so that we can announce it to all the members.
We want to see you at our events!! As a courtesy to your fellow mommies and venues that require reservations please confirm or cancel your RSVP 24 hours prior to the event or in accordance with deadlines posted on specific events. We know that being a mother comes with many challenges and blow outs happen at the last minute so if you must have a last minute cancelation please at least change your RSVP to "no" instead of leaving it as "yes". Excuses are not required but they are welcome because we are a caring group of moms.
Organizers retain the right to cancel RSVP's for those who have consistent no shows to events that require reservations.
~Profiles and membership~
Please fill out your profile completely so that you can properly introduce yourself and your little one. We also highly encourage that you include a current photo of yourself or little one so that finding you is easier in crowded parks.
Having a completed profile is a must for those looking to join our group.
