I'm not going to say there's an easy way or it's never going to happen to find friends after becoming a parent. It takes a lot of time and work which parents don't have. It sucks. But I can say, I've been there. I know. The struggle is real.

Becoming a Mom can feel like you are starting at square one again when it comes to friendships. To make and maintain mom friendships you have to hustle in ways you never had to with your dating game. Schedules that don't align, rejections, and mom obligations all get in the way of connecting during a time we need it most.
