We have over 4200 members and are always welcoming more. If you're a woman living in San Francisco who is expecting a child or has at least one child under six years old, come join us! We provide an amazing array of services for moms in San Francisco--our very popular newsletter, forums, classifieds, events for kids, moms, and families, and lots more.

GGMG helps connect moms with similar-aged children and similar interests in the form of playgroups and special interest groups. 

Members run the playgroups themselves, and many groups become quite close and last years! Find out more about our playgroups.


Give a homeless child a brighter night!

GGMG is excited to be partnering up with Project Night Night October 1st-31st. Project Night Night distributes Night Night Packages to homeless children ages 0-10. Each Night Night Package includes an age-appropriate book, a baby blanket which can be cuddled, and a stuffed animal which can become a cherished friend, all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag.

By donating much needed blankets, books and stuffed animals to Project Night Night, we as GGMG moms can truly make a difference to these children in need. Purchasing guidelines for the items include:

  • Blankets should be NEW or newly handmade. We appreciate quilted, fleece, knit, crocheted, "no-sew," and store-bought blankets. The ideal size is 50" x 60" or smaller.
  • Books appropriate for ages 0 to pre-teen. Books must be new or like-new.
  • Stuffed animals smaller than 20 inches. Stuffed animals must be new.
Please consider joining us in support of Project Night Night in one of four ways:
  1. Join us at the GGMG Project Night Night Event - click here
  2. Purchasing blankets or books from the Project Night Night Amazon wish list
  3. Ordering online from your preferred retailer
  4. Donating funds directly to Project Night Night
  5. Neighborhood drop-off sites

Thank you volunteers at GGMG's Glitter Walk!

Thank you to the over 30 volunteers that volunteered at GGMG's Glitter Walk. GGMG volunteers participated alongside 1,838 volunteers that came out to the ocean beaches. We picked up an estimated 5,345 lbs. of debris. Without volunteers like you we wouldn't have clean sparkling beaches to enjoy all year round!

Parks & Playgrounds

San Francisco has nearly 100 playgrounds in the city, so why not try somewhere new?  And new is right--playgrounds are continually being renovated. Check out our survey of San Francisco playgrounds with pictures, directions, and helpful tips!

Our Just-for-Moms Committee organizes events that are designed only for moms (and sometimes dads) such as CPR training, cooking classes, a night at the movies, trips to a spa, dinners, brunches, exercise classes, etc. All kinds of things to do without the kids!
Our Kids Activities Committee plans events for children, newborn to kindergarten age, that include fun, age-appropriate events several times a month.
Our Social Events Committee hosts three fantastic annual events (Halloween Party, Egg Hunt, and Summer Fair) for the entire family.
Join a group of mothers who have similar-aged children (or due dates!) at a Playgroup Formation Event.  Events are held at venues around SF and vary between week nights and weekends to accommodate different schedules.
GGMG, in partnership with Parents Place, hosts a variety of parenting seminars and workshops. Check the events calendar for upcoming sessions.
The Careers Committee organizes career focused events that include networking with other mothers and local companies/recruiters. We help mom’s navigate both their careers and kids successfully. Check the events calendar often for upcoming sessions.

Nurture ourselves, our children, our partners and our community.
Create an environment of support, information sharing and connection.
Learn, teach, create, have fun and provide balance in the lives of our growing families.

Our Motto: We are a work in progress...
