How to meet other pregnant ladies?
 
Does anyone have any ideas how to meet other pregnant ladies in their area? I love chatting to all you ladies on here but I would really like some friends I can socialise with who are pregnant as none of mine are or are likely to be any time soon!

I wonder if midwives can put you in touch with others? Or does anyone have any other suggestions?

I just feel like I am sort of 'out on a limb' all by myself!

I would like to know that as well.

My midwife gave some info on prenatal exercise classes that I can sign up for after 16 weeks. That might be a good place to meet other pregnant folk.

find out if there are any pregnancy yoga/ pilates classes in your area, I've seen lots of aquaerobics classes for pg women in my local paper so I'm thinking I'll join one.

Thanks for the ideas - just found details of a pregnancy yoga class near me!

Try browsing local papers, the cards in newsagents windows etc and maybe try asking at your local leisure centre? If you know of a local yoga class ask the teacher if they know of a pregnancy yoga class anywhere - it might even inspire them to start one! The midwife might be able to help out, too - and NCT classes are supposed to be very good for meeting pregnant people, but they're usually much later on.
