Mumsnet is a British community website set up by mothers to give advice on parenting and family issues. It was involved in libel litigation with Gina Ford over alleged defamatory comments made on the site’s message boards by its members.
Our aim is to make parents’ lives easier by pooling knowledge, advice and support. We try, as far as possible to let the conversation flow and not to over-moderate. Mumsnet is a site for grown-ups.
Once you’re a member, you can set up a profile page (where you can post your likes and dislikes, and show off your photos) and you can visit your local Mumsnet site (where you can meet local mums and find out about local activities).
And, of course, you can dive into our Talk boards and join an antenatal club or discuss anything from movies to mothers-in-law.
