Join us as we share the joys and struggles of single motherhood!
Single moms have to do it all -- we have to be both the mother AND the father, the nurturer and disciplinarian, teacher, friend and provider. Sometimes, it's hard not to look around at the couples with or without kids and feel like no one understands what you are going through.
Sisters In Arms - Single Moms is a social/support networking community for "solo moms" to meet and form close connections with other moms in similar situations. This group encourages social and professional networking, and the sharing/exchange of ideas, tips and experiences with others who understand (and may actually be experiencing many of the same issues as you) in a compassionate, empowering atmosphere. Through our meetups, informal gatherings and friendly discussions, we address ALL topics pertaining to single motherhood (such as child support, raising children of all ages, first-time moms, pregnancy, dating/intimacy and co-parenting with exes, to name a few) -- no topic is EVER taboo! We pride ourselves on the fact that our community is full of supportive, non-judgmental "Sisters" who are there for you when you need someone to vent your frustrations to...
As Sisters In Arms, our main goal is to support one another and share in the laughter and fun that may have fallen to the wayside while we were focusing on being "Super Mom." We encourage those who may be feeling alone on their journey to attend one of our meetups -- we guarantee that you will walk away from the event with some new found friends!
We have several meetups* and outings scheduled each month, so please check our site/calendar regularly for event details. Although we are primarily based in the South Bay, we do try to schedule meetups all around the Bay Area, to accommodate the locational diversity of our community.
