Community Groups

icmb_facebook_profileOne of our primary goals at Iowa City Moms Blog is to connect local moms to one another! We do that through online interaction and through events we host such as meet-ups, playgroups, mom’s night outs, and more! We also want you to know about other local groups who provide opportunities for you to get out of the house and meet some other mamas!

If you are the organizer of a local moms’ group or playgroup and would like to be added to this list, please email us at contact (at) iowacitymomsblog (dot) com.
