JP Moms will be shutting down on 12/31/18 due to Big Tent removing all their forums. We are not accepting new members at this time. We will be transitioning to a new platform and will be accepting new members there on 1/1/19. We will update with our new location as soon as that information is available. If you are a new member, please do not email us before 1/1/19.

PMoms is an on-line extension of a face-to-face community of parents in Jamaica Plain and immediately adjacent neighborhoods of Boston. Created in 2003, this grass-roots list was organized by JP mothers who wanted to stay in touch as their babies outgrew the Jamaica Plain New Moms’ Support Group. Although our group was started by mothers, JPMoms is open to parents (mothers, fathers, and guardians) and expectant parents living in Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, West Roxbury, Roxbury, Hyde Park and Mission Hill.

JPMoms aims to promote an open, accepting, and supportive space for parents to connect with the local parenting community. The on-line community of JPMoms is a resource where local parents and expectant parents ask and answer questions, share concerns, provide support, and exchange information related to parenting. Since the listserv represents a geographic community of parents, member interactions are similar to the way a group of parents would interact at a playground, school open house, or community picnic. All posts are signed with the poster’s first name and child or children’s first initial and approximate age. Members are encouraged to actively participate in discussions, answer questions, and provide information and support to other community members.

The group is not open to individuals who want to join to promote events, services or products, nor is it open to those who wish to use JPMoms for marketing or research. JPMoms is not open to nannies and daycare providers unless said providers are parents of small children and reside in our designated geographic area. We ask child care providers and all local business owners to wear their ‘parent hat’ when participating on JPMoms, not a ’business’ hat.
