Requirement for Membership

You MUST reside in Downtown Manhattan. LES, Greenwich Village, Union Square, Soho, Noho, Flatiron. Nannies/Caregivers are prohibited from joining.

Bowery Babes is a downtown NYC nonprofit mothers group dedicated to supporting women from pregnancy through the early years of motherhood and beyond. Our mission is to support, educate and enrich parents and create a welcoming, close-knit family community within downtown Manhattan.

Bowery Babes is both an “on” and “offline” community. Our online forum allows mothers to be in contact with other moms on every topic under the sun. Each member joins an Age & Stage so she can be part of an even more intimate group and communicate with other families with children the same age.

In addition to this extremely active online communication, our members network through playgroups, meet ups and other Bowery Babes events such as educational talks, webinars, working-moms lunches, philanthropy and social events.

While Bowery Babes strives to be inclusive, we are primarily made up of moms, soon-to-be moms and dads who reside in "Downtown Manhattan" - LES, Greenwich Village, Union Square, Soho, Noho, Flatiron and the surrounding neighborhoods. Therefore, our events and programming are centered around the downtown area. If you live outside this area and still want to join, please send us an email - bowerybabes@gmail.com. We will review your request.

Nanny/Caregiver Policy: We do not allow any Nannies or Caregivers to join our group. Nannies may not solicit for jobs on Big Tent platform and the only permissible posts are mothers/fathers/custodial caregivers recommending a nanny that they have personally used. If a nanny or caregiver joins our group falsifies their profile or is soliciting themselves as a nanny/caregiver, this will result in immediate removal of your membership. You will be placed on the Offender List and not be allowed to re-join the group.
