HRP Mamas was established in 2004 by a group of first time mothers who met through a new mothers support group. The bond this small group of moms shared was a positive and joyous one. The experience of finding other neighborhood moms with which to share this special moment and make lasting friendships helped us forge a community of support, resources and information. Inspired by the desire to pass on this supportive experience to others, the Hudson River Park Mothers Group was born.
With a network of over 2800 local moms, a calendar of lectures and workshops, vibrant online forums for group discussions or private emails, an archive containing 15 years worth of information and advice, a busy classifieds message board, expectant mom meetups, playgroups and mothers circles, select social events, email blasts about local events and activities, HRP Mamas offers unparalleled support and community, both online and in person, to mothers residing in Lower Manhattan.
Unlike many other online groups, the HRP Mamas online community is not anonymous. Each participant is a verified local mother. Verification occurs through referrals or in person meetings with group coordinators. This combination makes for an intimate and respectful environment, fostering friendships and community. Our goal is to nurture a supportive environment for expecting moms, new moms, moms new to the neighborhood, and for mothers of older children.
If you are looking for a supportive, safe, kind, and informative Mothers Group and you are a mama or a soon to be mama who resides in Lower Manhattan, The Hudson River Park Mothers Group looks forward to welcoming you!
