As part of The Mommies Network, KnoxvilleMommies is a free community for moms in Knoxville and surrounding areas, Tennessee. We realize that all moms need local support -- and who can't use another friend? KnoxvilleMommies offers a simple way to connect with local moms for friendship, support and fun. Each month, we offer many face-to-face events for our members, their children and their families. Our members also have access to our private discussion forums to share information on everything from where to get the best haircut to tips on transitioning to a "big kid" bed.
