Our History


In 2008, Roxanne’s family was transferred to Qatar from Houston, Texas – her third overseas posting.  At the time there were several playgroups around Doha, but they were just that – playgroups. You would go to a playgroup with your toddler, leave after a couple of hours, and that was that until the next one was held. What was lacking was a consistent platform that allowed mums to connect, organize friendship-building activities or create a real community of expat parents.

Building upon her experiences with an expatriate group in Buenos Aires, Argentina and a parenting network in Houston, Texas she started Doha Mums. The group has grown over the years to over 1,200 members and we are always open to new members.

We hope you enjoy Doha Mums as much as we do, and we’ll look forward to seeing you at an event soon!
