Bumps & Babies Groups

We are very proud of our Bumps & Babies Groups - they offer new mums a great opportunity to meet other local mums, make friends and have a couple of hours a week where they can get together over a cuppa and a biscuit to share thoughts, concerns and questions about motherhood. Suitable for expectant and new mums with babies from newborn to crawlers and open to everyone (members and non-members). We currently have groups in Central Croydon, Purley and South Norwood.
