We have over 4200 members and are always welcoming more. If you're a woman living in San Francisco who is expecting a child or has at least one child under six years old, come join us! We provide an amazing array of services for moms in San Francisco--our very popular newsletter, forums, classifieds, events for kids, moms, and families, and lots more.

GGMG helps connect moms with similar-aged children and similar interests in the form of playgroups and special interest groups. 

Members run the playgroups themselves, and many groups become quite close and last years! Find out more about our playgroups.


Make it a happier holiday for a family!

We are almost halfway through our goal of raising over 15K for HPP! Please donate today.

From November 17th to January 2nd, GGMG will be supporting Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) families during the holiday season. The holidays are a special time of year but can be difficult for families experiencing challenging circumstances. Did you know $25 can provide a holiday meal for a HPP family of four? What a wonderful way to make a difference! HPP is a truly remarkable organization that helps over 3,500 local low income and homeless families every year. GGMG and HPP have formed a special relationship of moms helping moms. Please join us in continuing this remarkable tradition and consider making a donation to the HPP holiday drive.

Donations can be made via the following link: https://hpp.secure.force.com/donate. Please choose "GGMG Gives" in the drop down menu when making a donation, and check the forums for additional ways you can support this drive.

Thank you for making a child's night brighter for Project Night Night!

Thank you to the countless volunteers that donated to the PNN drive! We collected over 170 books, 65 blankets, and 110 stuffed animals. We enabled children in several SF shelters to have a stuffed animal, a book and a blanket to snuggle up to at the end of the day.

Didn't have time to donate? PNN accepts donations year-round at the Hotel del Sol at 3800 Webster (at Filbert) in the Marina and at Peekadoodle Kids Club. Don't forget to provide a physical address where they can send a thank you note.

Parks & Playgrounds

San Francisco has nearly 100 playgrounds in the city, so why not try somewhere new?  And new is right--playgrounds are continually being renovated. Check out our survey of San Francisco playgrounds with pictures, directions, and helpful tips!

Our Just-for-Moms Committee organizes events that are designed only for moms (and sometimes dads) such as CPR training, cooking classes, a night at the movies, trips to a spa, dinners, brunches, exercise classes, etc. All kinds of things to do without the kids!
Our Kids Activities Committee plans events for children, newborn to kindergarten age, that include fun, age-appropriate events several times a month.
Our Social Events Committee hosts three fantastic annual events (Halloween Party, Egg Hunt, and Summer Fair) for the entire family.
Join a group of mothers who have similar-aged children (or due dates!) at a Playgroup Formation Event.  Events are held at venues around SF and vary between week nights and weekends to accommodate different schedules.
GGMG, in partnership with Parents Place, hosts a variety of parenting seminars and workshops. Check the events calendar for upcoming sessions.
The Careers Committee organizes career focused events that include networking with other mothers and local companies/recruiters. We help mom’s navigate both their careers and kids successfully. Check the events calendar often for upcoming sessions.

Nurture ourselves, our children, our partners and our community.
Create an environment of support, information sharing and connection.
Learn, teach, create, have fun and provide balance in the lives of our growing families.

Our Motto: We are a work in progress...
