Frequently asked questions

How do I join the New Mother's Support Group and how much is it?


Joining NMSG is easy! There are two options to sign up to become a member:

  1. Online. Fill out the registration form and pay via our website (https://www.nmsg-singapore.com/join-us). Once your application/ payment is confirmed, you can pick-up your membership card at any NMSG event by showing your email confirmation to one of our volunteer

  2. At any of our events. You can pay by cash only at the event. You will be handed a membership card and a copy of our latest newsletter

Already a NMSG member and need to renew your membership? You can do that via our website too.

By signing up you will be added to our mailing list and will receive a monthly newsletter plus updates on any new events/partners. Don't worry, we'll only send you useful information and we won't ever sell your details on. You can unsubscribe at any time.

Our membership fee is $35 for 12 months. Renewal of your membership thereafter is at $25.




What are the benefits of joining NMSG?


NMSG members get instant access to many free and heavily subsidised events organised by us: baby & bump coffee mornings (FREE and attended by a midwife and/or doctor), monthly talks, lots of socials for you and your little ones in various locations and soft-play centres, a couple of FREE walks (Botanic Gardens and East Coast Park), a bi-monthly newsletter sent to your email or delivered to your door, lots of discounts with our partnering businesses, and plenty more! Our talks are given by professionals experienced in the areas of pregnancy, postnatal care, feeding, sleeping habits, potty training and all matters concerning the raising of young children. We aim to help mums establish or add to their network of friends and share experiences of being a mum with young children in Singapore.




I'm not a 'new mum', i.e. I have more than one child or my child is now 2, can I still join?


Of course! NMSG exists to support families with children aged 5 and under.




Why can't my helper take my little one to events?


Here at NMSG, we are all about supporting our wonderful mums (and dads) through every day life with young kids. Whilst parenthood is fun and rewarding, it can also be incredibly lonely, especially if you're new to Singapore. Sometimes you just need a friendly face after a terrible night and our aim is to help you to make new friends and build up a great support network of other parents who understand exactly what you're going through. That's why we've decided to make all NMSG events for mums and dads only. Whilst we understand that our helpers are hugely valued and integral parts of our families, it's important to us that our events are for parents to connect with other parents.




How do I join the committee?


We are always looking for enthusiastic and motivated people to join the committee. NMSG is run entirely by a volunteer led committee and we each have a role from hosting events to managing communications and finances. Our committee members also help to organise our special events throughout the year and contribute to the NMSG blog. Joining is a great way to give something back, make new friends and keep those workplace skills fresh and current.




Do I need to bring socks to your events?


It depends. Make sure you check Meetup where all individual event information is listed and detailed (https://www.meetup.com/New-Mothers-Support-Group-Singapore/).




What discounts do I get for being a member?


One of the great privileges of being a NMSG member is the access we provide to an extensive range of discounts from our partners island wide. From kids clothing, photography and fitness to cafes and lifestyle products, you'll be amazed at the savings you can make. Keep your card on you for all our events and when using our partner offers.




Where can I find a list of all your events?


Check out Meetup for a list of all of our events. Once you're a paid member, you will receive a monthly e-newsletter detailing our upcoming events and we regularly post our upcoming weekly events on Facebook. You can join our Facebook group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NewMothersSupportGroupSingapore/ You can also download our events on the Homepage of this website.




How do I register for events?


You can register for our events via Meetup. Sometimes our members need to register for tickets to special events but this will be indicated on Meetup. Certain events can become crowded so it's advised to book early to avoid disappointment as entry can be on a first come first served basis.
