  • I’d like to host a playgroup, but my house is too small. Are there any options for me?

    I’d like to host a playgroup, but my house is too small. Are there any options for me?

    Absolutely! 

    You can host a playgroup for a specific age-range (e.g. non-mobile babies, one-year olds, young toddlers, etc.), and you may also limit the number of attendees by using the RSVP feature on our members-only website.  We only ask that you save space for at least three prospective members. 

    You may also co-host with a member who has a larger home - you bring the snacks, they supply the space, and you both clean up. 

    Another option is to “host” a playgroup in a park or in Ray’s Reef, which involves little more than sending out the announcement and reminding parents to bring snacks, water, sunscreen, etc.

  • Why can’t I just sign up for Doha Mums? I already know several members.

    Why can’t I just sign up for Doha Mums? I already know several members.

    We are a group of trusted expat mums in Doha.  We want to ensure that all of our members are, indeed, expat mums -- and that they are interested enough in our group to make the effort involved in attending at least one event. 

    There are other fantastic online forums here in Doha which allow the general public to simply “sign up”, but knowing that our group contains only “known trusted mums” is part of what makes our group so special.

    Please take minute to look through our Calendar for an event that suits your schedule.  Once you have attended an event, you can join Doha Mums!

  • I already attend a playgroup. How is Doha Mums different?

    I already attend a playgroup. How is Doha Mums different?

    Playgroups meet once a week or so. . .then everyone goes home until the next playgroup.  Moms do become acquainted with one another, but playgroups never really “take it to the next level” for moms as a whole. 

    Doha Mums is a Mums Group - not just a playgroup.  We do organize many (!) playgroups, but the playgroups are just one element of our group as a whole.  On average, Doha Mums offers 60-80 events each month!

    We also offer a private website for members, which contains a members-only forum for questions & discussions, a member directory, a complete calendar and a classified ad section - all of which available only to Doha Mums members.

  • I am a working mom (or a working expectant mom) - what events can I attend?

    I am a working mom (or a working expectant mom) - what events can I attend?

    We have made it easier for working mums to identify events occuring in non-working hours! Just visit the Events page and click on the filter for "Working Mum Friendly" - this will bring up all but the afternoon, evening and weekend events.

    The Mums Night Out and the New Arrivals Night Out are our main evening events, and we have occasional weekend and afternoon events as well. 

    Keep an eye on the daytime events as well since there may be one that will take place close to your place of employment.  You need not stay for the entire event, so if you are able to sneak away for just a bit then perhaps that would be a convenient way to join Doha Mums.  We are also offering a Saturday playgroup at a park near Landmark Mall during the cooler months.

  • May I bring my infant or young toddler to a Toddler’s or Preschooler’s Playgroup?

    May I bring my infant or young toddler to a Toddler’s or Preschooler’s Playgroup?

    As a general rule, yes.  However, please remember that the Toddlers/Preschoolers “rule” at the playgroup, so it will be up to you to keep your younger one out of harm’s way around the older ones and their toys. 

    Some events do specify age ranges, though, so please do respect the wishes of the hostess.
