It’s great to be an NW8-mum.

This is the friendly forum for mums living in St John’s Wood. NW8-mums started as a google group in 2009, and the actual website was launched in 2013, with the aim to help bring together mums and dads in the NW8 (and surrounding) area.

For a new mama with a newborn in tow or a toddler strapped to her leg, it can be daunting to go out and meet people. Don’t worry though. Lots of us feel this way.

I hope that NW8-mums will become a haven, a place to connect with other parents and find advice, recommendations and support. NW8-mums aim to inform you about local events, organise meetings, social events, playdates, first-aid courses and more.

If you are of a certain nationality and would like to meet others with the same background, or if you are worried about your English, please email me so that I can connect you with someone. The members of NW8-mums come from all corners of the world and are very welcoming.


I am deeply honoured to have been awarded a Certificate of Merit from the British Citizenship Awards for the work I do with NW8-mums after being nominated by my mums.

For classes and other activities for mothers and children, go to Local Knowledge incl. services & classes for mums and babies and look at the drop down menu. There is lots of information there, and I am constantly adding things as I hear of them, or experience them myself.
