Over the festive period, the North Shore Mums Facebook group will be closed for a few days from midday Christmas Eve until 7am Tuesday 29 December.
We’ve done this every year since the group started, and it’s always proved to be a welcomed break for the moderators, who are effectively ‘on call’ 24 hours a day to respond to any situations.
It means we can properly switch off from social media for a few days, without worrying that misinformation is being spread or a drama is unfolding. We want the group to be a trusted and positive environment for mums, and this requires constant moderation.
We totally appreciate that North Shore Mums can be a huge source of support (and friendly banter), so hope our members will be okay without their daily fix of North Shore Mums. We thank you (in advance) for your understanding.
While the group is closed, you won’t be able to post any new questions – however you will be able to reply to threads already existing in the group. These posts will not be moderated, so please ensure posts follow our Group Guidelines.

Thank you for an amazing 2020!
We’d love to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of such a special community of amazing local mums, and providing support, advice, recommendations, education and friendship to other women in our Facebook group. From the bottom of our hearts, it makes us so happy when members tell us just how much North Shore Mums has improved their parenting journey, provided support in those first few months as a parent (and beyond!) and people who have made connections and friendships in the real world.
Wishing you and your families a relaxing and safe holiday!
Love Rachel, Michelle, Alison, Henny, Laura, Leesa, Lucy, Bianka, Flick & Heidi xx
