Poll reveals new mums unaware how to meet other mothers Monday 11 August 2008 PDF Print ‘Over 70% of new mums would like more friends to share problems and experiences with but don’t know where to go to meet them’ according to a recent survey of over 350 parents polled by What’s on for little ones (http://www.whatson4littleones.co.uk). Despite there being a huge range of groups and classes now available across the UK, over 42% of the mums polled still did not know such groups existed or didn’t know how to find them. What’s more, the survey revealed that over 90% of the mums who did attend groups wished they had attended more, and 99% would recommend classes to a pregnant friend.
