My christian friends were able to find christian mother groups really easy. I'm finding it difficult to find any pagan mother groups.

So, HI THERE! I'm pagan.

You might have better luck in the spirituality section here- click on the forum jump in the bottom right and scroll down, it's close to the bottom.

Heyla!

Come on by the pagan parent thread We're pretty chatty, but there's a new thread each month so if you don't want to catch up with the August thread the Sept thread will be starting soon.

For real world groups... have you tried WitchVox? Your local Unitarian Universalist community? Maybe put something on the bulletin board of a local bookstore, craft store, coffee shop?

Nice to meet you!

Be pretty! Be practical! Be Pagan! Visit Pagan Hearth & Home!

Circle Sanctuary is in Wisconsin. I haven't been, but I've heard a lot of good things about it.

Thanks wombatclay! This is my first pregnancy, just 12 weeks now, and I really feel like I'm making a lot of faux pas and clutching at straws.

Thanks kcstar for the reminder. A few years ago, I decided to step away from the local groups but I like the earlier comment of looking in the UUs.

Welcome Kierae!!! Where are you in WI? Congratulations on your upcoming addition!

I second Clay's rec for the pagan parents thread... we're a warm fuzzy bunch

As for real life... I'm still looking but not actively for places around here. I'm a rather solitary practioner, but always up for a good celebration!

I really looking forward to the Sept thread!

I'm in Madison and a member of RCGI and was a member of many of the local e-groups but you know how it is when bad apples spoil the bunch. I became very solitary and the husband doesn't understand because he's agnostic.

I was joking with one of my danish friends that there are "happy danes" & "holy danes." I need to find more "happy pagans."
