Not pregnant but just had bubs three months ago. We have been in Darwin for about 9 months and now that I am no longer working I need to find a mothers/playgroup....I have become slack and not getting out the house much lately.
How far along are you? Are you having bubs at RDH or the private hospital (they're the only two options aren't they)?
Hope all is going well!
