MUSH

Mush

Mush is a free app that connects mums with other local, like-minded mums with kids the same age. It is quickly becoming the must-have app for millennial mums.

Mush was born through the experience of its founders Katie Massie-Taylor & Sarah Hesz, who met when they had four small children between them and found the days long, lonely and isolating… until their chance meeting in a playground. Having kept each other sane and happy in the months that followed, they realised that all mums should have access to a free and fun way to find other mums nearby, and Mush launched in Spring 2016.

Today Mush has been credited for over 100,000 friendships from its 60,000 members and has a spread of users throughout the UK, as well as pockets of users around the world.

Mush exists because we discovered that:

80% of mums feel lonely

50% of mums go to the supermarket primarily for adult interaction

50% find it hard to make local mum friends

60% of mums go a full day without adult interaction

82% of mums think having mum friends makes you a happier, more positive mum

One mum who Mush has been a lifeline for is Jessica, 33 who said: “Not knowing anyone in the area, the early days of maternity leave were lonely and I knew I had to do something about it. I was out walking three times a day and needed some adult conversation. You do meet a lot of mums at all the baby classes but it’s not the same – Mush is great as you’re all on there with the same objective, to make friends.”

Katherine Williams, born and bred Crouch-Ender (N8) and mummy to Zachary said:

“I joined Mush to make some mummy friends with babies the same age as my son – I’ve had one mummy ‘date’ and I’ve only been on it properly for a week!  I’ve said hi to a few mummies who have messaged me back so I’m just waiting to see if they want to meet up!”
