I'm a mum but HATE baby groups – other mums aren’t friendly, they all have cliques and just ignore you | The Sun
MANY new mums find baby groups to be a helpful way to connect with other women going through the same experiences.
However, one woman has claimed she “hates” them, and slammed them for being “cliquey” and “overwhelming.”
TikTok user Liliana Branco, who has two kids under three, said: “Baby groups are NOT welcoming & fun!
“Half the time you go and the mums have already formed little cliques so unless you go with a friend you might as well stay home and play with your baby.
“They don’t talk to you and try and get to know you, instead they judge you based on what you look like.
“Then you have the competitive mums playing the game of one-upmanship.

“Not to mention the cost £10 per baby class when you are on £600 stat pay – make it make sense.
“It’s a scary overwhelming place.”
Her video on her @liliana_branco account has racked up over 4,000 likes and people praised her honesty.
One said: “say it louder for the people in the back!”

Another added: “I literally only go for my son. Change of scenery and new activities. I hate them all but it’s all for him.”
And a third commented: “This is why I will not go to one, I already have bad anxiety I do not need judgmental mums making it worse.”
However, not everyone agreed, with one person saying: “These comments are really sad. “As a new mum I thought baby groups were great for getting out and meeting people who are going through what you are.”
