Full time parenting can be an isolating experience, especially first time around so a tool like this could be powerful. Unfortunately this ignores those families where parenting involves a child's dad and reinforces the experience of being excluded. It's lazy to make something that is so insistently focused on mums to the exclusion of another parent, especially given wonderful policy initiatives like Shared Parental Leave that recognise, and encourage, co-parenting.
Despite wice requesting to start a group specific to the needs of the rural community I live in, and quite a distance from the main towns, the request has been ignored. So unless you're in an urban area it's futile using the app. 😠The recent upgrade has downgraded the acting function of just bring able to view posts of the areas you choose to. Such potential for success, yet looks destined for failure!
The moms I was matched with were all located over 1000km away from me. That's no good to me at all without access to a private plane lol!
Great place to meet new mom's
The principle is sound and the new "local" Mush-Up feature would be a real bonus, except the areas are far too broad! For an app designed to help meet people locally, the only area I can join can take a good half hour to drive from one extreme to the other. That's not local, and actually not at all helpful. I put in a suggestion months ago now for a more localised borough group and all I got back was a message saying they had to check there weren't duplicated request and they'd be getting around to it. Still no sign of it becoming available though :(
Few technical problems but once working it does work well. Nice app foe meeting new people
