Hey, I'm Brianna. I started Dope Moms because making friends as an adult is really f**king hard.
As a British Columbia native, I struggled to meet other fun, dependable and cool women when my husband and I moved to Ottawa three years ago. I limped along with a seriously sad social life until we found out we were pregnant with our son Pierce aka Spicy P, at which point I knew something had to give.
When P was about 3 months old, and I hadn't left the house in days, I finally decided that enough was enough. Figuring I had nothing to lose (literally - I had no friends), I threw up a post in another mommy group with a funny picture and whacky caption and hoped for the best. It was then that Dope Moms was born via a natural birth, no epidural, with an approximately 6 hour labour.
Fast forward 3 months, and the little Facebook group that could is now over 1100 members strong. Building this community has not only changed my life, but has also improved the lives of hundreds of women in the National Capital Region who previously had nowhere to turn for a good laugh and much needed support as they navigate the challenging world of motherhood.
We're not your Mom's mom group because we don't wince at profanity, we can laugh at each other and ourselves, we actually love to GTFO of the house and meet each other in person, we have tons of exclusive discounts on baby/kid products and services, and most importantly, we know how to have a good time.
If you've made it this far, you're probably chomping at the bit to get in on the action! If you're a mama, follow us on Instagram and join the Facebook group to start connecting with us and getting access to our Dope Moms Only discounts. If you're business and you're interested in exploring a partnership opportunity with our group, please visit our Collaborate With Us page.
Looking forward to meeting you soon,
Bri and Spicy P xo
