ChicagoParentFilter: I recently became a new mom, and in my circle of friends I'm the first mom. Chicagoans, do you know of any parent groups for new parents or parents of young children? Thanks.

I'm not in Chicago, but I know that MOMS Club is an international group, so I'm sure there's a chapter near you! Also, check your local library for baby storytimes and playgroups. Congrats!

They have a good chatboard there and I'm sure this question would get you a ton of answers there.

If you're cool with church groups, there's always the church-based group program MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers, which actually is for mothers of children up to preschool age). I just did a quick search for Chicago, IL and found a bunch of groups.

Have you checked out Craigslist?

See if there's a local chapter of MOMS club. There's an email address on that page you could write to.

Check out GoCityKids, Chicago. Click on the "Parent Resouces" link on the left of the home page. You'll find some info about parent groups there.

Thanks folks - especially NIMBY - that was exactly what I was looking for. At least for now until I go back to work.
