About Us

MomsTalk is Abu Dhabi’s first collective of mom (and moms-to-be) bloggers. Oh, and one dad. We are Emirati. Expat. Hold corporate jobs. Work part-time. Stay at home. Some are done having kids. Some haven’t started yet. We’re crunchy granola attachment-parenting mamas and tiger moms. Social butterflies and hermits. But above all, we talk. We talk parenting. We talk schooling. We talk food, and restaurants, and groceries and where-on-earth-did-you-find-that? We talk health, gyms, post-baby bodies. We talk to our community – local leaders, events, volunteering, mompreneurs, bloggers.  We talk relationships; with partners, friends, in-laws, and the most important one: yourself.

MomsTalk is the official blog of Moms Guide Abu Dhabi, an online resource and real life network of mothers who share values of integrity, support, acceptance and inclusion. Our mission is to inspire, empower, and connect moms.

Meet our bloggers and connect via Instagram. We’re out. We’re about. We’re spotting new restaurants, rare grocery finds, musings during school runs, waiting in doctor’s offices, trying out the latest workout, experimenting in the kitchen, and all the typical parent #fml #SoBlessed moments in between.
