    Hi

     

    I’m a single mum 42 looking to start a single mums group in Edinburgh. I would love to meet other mums to organise meet ups and plan activities for the kids . It can be isolating even with friends and family around and would be good to have a group for solidarity!

    Hiya, I think this is a great idea, I don’t have family in Edinburgh so any support from likeminded people would be fantastic. Have you got any ideas about where we could meet?

    Hi there, was just googling single mums in Edinburgh and saw this post. Has anything been organised? I would be interested in joining a group too, I’m finding being a single mum tough at times and would appreciate support from people in a similar position. I’ve got 2 kids, 5 year old boy and nearly 2 year old girl.

    Is there this up and running? Socially distanced of course!

    Hi.

    Was anything set up.

    Searching Google for local support and this came up.

    Ib no family and not many friends, I recently realised it’s been 2 weeks since my last face to face conversation with an adult that’s not a cashear in a shop.

     

    Mum of 4 15,13,4,2 live in East Lothian but can travel.

    Hello mum of 4,

    I realise now that my last message was not the clearest. You’re the only person that’s replied recently.

    It would be good to set up a zoom that we can all jump in and have a full on gossip session. What do you think?

    Hello Valentika

    This site seems pretty quiet. If I set up a zoom do you think people would attend and then we can have socially distanced walks etc….

    What does everyone think?

    Should we meet via zoom in the interim of the pandemic. I’m currently on maternity leave but if people can say their availability. For example free Saturdays am or pm. Maybe we can set something up???

    How does everyone feel about that?

    Hi there, I’m a single Mum in Edinburgh (41 with a 2.5 year old). I would be interested in joining if you’re thinking of starting a group. Look forward to ‘meeting’ you all 🙂

    Hello Georgina

    It hasn’t taken off yet, I’m 40 with 3, almost 4 month old. I usually walk around the meadows most days. During my pregnancy I gained an extra 100lbs and I’ve lost 40lbs walking it off. I’m happy for anyone to join and have a good gossip! 😂 😂 If anyone wants to zoom first that is fine too.

    Hi

     

    Ladies

     

    I was hoping we could all meet up face to face at first but realise that is going to be challenging at moment.  Would people be happy doing a zoom meeting??

     

    Cheers
