HRP Mamas takes an active role in helping mamas in Lower Manhattan connect in person. Whether you are an expectant mama
, a first time mama
, or a mom of two or more children
, there are meet-ups for you!
Our group started as an in person group, and continues very much in that tradition. Our organization helps mamas connect from the time they are pregnant through the high school years!
As a member of HRP Mamas you will join subgroups by due date or birth date of your child/children. You will also see there are many other subgroups to join: languages & culture, hobbies, dog owners, topics of interest, special needs, single mamas, mamas of multiples, and more.

On the subgroups you will learn about HRP Mamas weekly free member only mothers circles, support groups, expectant mama meet-ups, workshops and social events. All our events take place in Lower Manhattan.
Our mothers circles, support groups, and workshops are a lovely way for moms to make new friends and to share common experiences with other mamas & expectant mamas whose children are going through similar developmental stages, or who are at similar stages in their pregnancies.
In addition, HRP Mamas coordinators help volunteer mamas set up varied meet-ups.
Our subgroup calendars have lots of features to help facilitate events: directories, polls, rsvp's, reminders, special notices for attendees and more. So, if you would like to volunteer to be a point person for meet-ups, email us once you have joined!
Typical subgroup events may include meet-ups through out Lower Manhattan, including:
expectant mama meet-ups, new mom meet-ups, meet-ups for mamas with newborns and older siblings, playgroups, private classes, brunches, dinners, drink nights, book groups, stroller walks, running groups, baby & me exercise classes, art gallery walks, language based playgroups, knitting groups, group sports, and much more.
HRP Mamas subgroup calendars are busy with recurring HRP Mamas organized and member volunteer led events. The group provides plenty of opportunities for mamas to connect in real life with one another.
In 2004 HRP Mamas started as a small mothers circle of eight mamas. We have made it our mission to keep our grassroots tradition of connecting and supporting each other something that subsequent generations of mamas can enjoy.
We are so proud to say many families who connected through HRP Mamas playgroups are still enjoying friendships many years later.
