“One of the happiest times in your life, can also be the loneliest”
Mama Tribe was created in May 2017 by two friends Nikki McCahon and Haley Finlayson who both experienced crippling loneliness and isolation after the birth of their two children. Both Nikki and Haley were separated from friends and family, and struggled to connect with local mums in their area. They created Mama Tribe and the #nomumleftbehind movement to connect local mums and ensure that no mum felt lonely, isolated or without support.
In just 12 months Mama Tribe has connected thousands of mums through meet-ups and events, gained over 40,000 members, spread to over 50 locations and over 100 mums have become volunteer location Ambassadors. Mama Tribe has been featured by Facebook, Channel Ten, Mamamia, Kidspot and ABC radio.
Through Mama Tribe, you can find local mums in your area who are interested in catching up for coffee dates, play dates, wine nights or walks. We host regular meet-ups where you can connect with other local, like minded mums!
These days Nikki is the full time force behind Mama Tribe, with help of our network of over 100 local Ambassadors who help connect mums across Australia and New Zealand.
