The Beijing Mommy Group is actually a We Chat group we had set up as a “starter”, invited all the mommies we knew, and let it grow organically from there.
The group is for sharing news, local events, and for quick questions and answers.
While it is moderated, the rules aren’t strict, and we try to keep it light with jokes, stories, and chats with the hope that mothers will truly make friends and form a community of support.

Chinese movie star Yuan Li has some harsh words for any Chinese women that dream about marrying a foreigner: you’re in for a world of pain and suffering.
The 42 year-old actress recently gave an interview where she opened up about her 2011 marriage (seen above) to Canadian Blaine Grunewald, the CEO of Lehman Bush.
Usually reticent to talk about her private affairs, Yuan revealed how her marriage to a non-Chinese has both been painful and has served as a valuable lesson.
Speaking from her personal experience, Yuan said: .” Yuan also admitted that things had gotten so bad that she considered divorcing Grunewald at one time.
Grunewald is Yuan’s third husband after having divorced actor Zhao Ling and her first husband Xu Wei, with whom Yuan shares a son.
Transitioning to parenthood can be challenging, especially as an expat, often someone removed from their “circle” or community.Not only is parenthood a huge change in general, no matter your location or home situation, but being away from family and friends can make it all the more difficult.Personally, I survived my first pregnancy largely in isolation, meeting good friends individually and in small groups in appropriate situations.Even after returning to Beijing, I was more concerned with reconnecting with my “Beijing friends” than in meeting new friends who have more similar life situations as me.It didn’t matter to me that my friends here were mostly single, and all childless, because a part of me wanted to protect my old identity–the Jessica who was not pregnant or a “mommy”.It took me a while to grow out of this phase, and even as I dropped out of friend hangouts, ignored events, and even weeded out acquaintances, I slowly came to the realization that I should try making new friends with whom I could gush about kiddy stuff that I know my friends would tire of hearing.
