We have over 4200 members and are always welcoming more. If you're a woman living in San Francisco who is expecting or has at least one child under 12 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.


Help Pregnant Teens and Children of All Ages. Donate Today to the Children’s Book Project and the Felton Institute’s Teenage Pregnancy and Parenting Program

March 1-April 15

Please join us in supporting the Children’s Book Project and the Felton Institute’s Teenage Pregnancy and Parenting Program (TAPP) by donating new and gently used books and other literacy aids as well as baby items this spring.

The Children’s Book Project helps disadvantaged children learn to read by providing children and their shelters, schools, daycare and community centers with books and other resources. Research shows that children to whom books are read have an easier time learning to read than those who don't have this experience. In addition, evidence shows that reading aloud to children actually helps their brain development.

TAPP partners with the San Francisco School District at a high school specifically for pregnant teens and helps young mothers at various points in their high school education as well as in their journey as parents. They all live in varying degrees of poverty and lack many of the types of parenting tools and baby-gear that many moms find useful.

Please donate new and gently used children’s books for children of all ages — infants to teenagers as well as other resources that aid literacy including curriculum materials, magazines, dictionaries, posters, CDs and DVDs. TAPP accepts a wide variety of baby items such as:

  • Clothes & shoes for children of all ages
  • Maternity clothing
  • Receiving blankets & baby towels
  • Car-seats, strollers, highchairs and baby carriers
  • Toys & books in good condition
  • Closed circuit breast pumps & unused tubing
  • Breast milk storage bags and bottles
  • Disposable nursing pads
  • Diapers & wipes & training potties
  • Pregnancy & parenting books
  • Unopened toiletries including: baby shampoo & soap, toothbrushes & sunscreen
Drop off your items at the following locations:
  • Peekadoodle at 900 North Point Street, Suite F100
  • Peekaboo Factory at 2 West Portal Avenue
  • Recess at 470 Carolina Street
  • Baby gear only: Felton Institute at 2730 Bryant Street, Second Floor, from 8:30-4:30. Please let the front desk know that the donations are for TAPP.
  • Books and learning materials only: Children’s Book Project, 1360 43rd Avenue, Room #105 (Francis Scott Key Annex (not school). For 50 books or more, call 415 665 6315 to arrange a pickup

Thank you from Dress for Success!

  • Thanks to everyone who donated items to the Dress for Success drive! We collected over 30 bags of clothing, shoes, purses and other items during our short drive. These will go a long way in helping women empower themselves by entering into the work force. Thanks also to the JCCSF for partnering with us.

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...
