Join Us :: Baton Rouge Community Neighborhood Groups

Does it feel like none of your friends have children the same age as yours? Or have you been wanting to try the new indoor play space in your neighborhood but all of your friends with kids work?

Are you a working mom who wants to arrange playdates for her children on the weekend, but all of the playgroups in your area meet during the work week?

Are you new to the Baton Rouge area and looking for recommendations for pediatricians, schools, or family-friendly activities in your area?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions (or even if you didn’t), we have exciting news for you! Red Stick Mom is thrilled to introduce our Community Neighborhood Groups. The primary goal of these groups is to connect moms online, as well as offline, through playdates and events. Whether you’re a new mom, new to the city, or just want to meet new friends, our regular meet-ups will be the perfect way to connect with moms in your area. Also, when you can’t see each other in person, you will have moms right in your Baton Rouge area to answer any questions about businesses and resources in your neck of the woods.

We currently have the following neighborhood groups available to join below, along with a special interest group (feel free to join more than one – we know that you may live in one area of Baton Rouge and work in yet another). Don’t see your neighborhood? While this doesn’t encompass every single neighborhood, feel free to hop into the one that is closest to you. If the need arises, we can add more in the future. Just click on your area and ask to join the group!

From there, let the fun begin!

In addition to our Neighborhood groups, we have also added Special Interest groups. We hope these will be positive, open forums to vent, share resources, and meet new friends.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you and your kids to make new friends and connections in our community!

Ericka is originally a New Orleans gal who was raised to begin many dishes with a roux. Since 2011, she has happily embraced the Red Stick life with her husband of seven years, Tyler. Although she met her husband at an LSU game after her car broke down, they both attended Northwestern State University where she graduated with a Business Administration degree. After graduation, she and Tyler took a leap of faith and tied the knot. She dabbled in the corporate scene but eventually returned to school to pursue her passion for teaching and earned a Master’s degree in Elementary Education. She taught at an inner-city school in Baton Rouge for 3 years where she gained a family of students and colleagues alike. She’s traded in her beloved Expo pens and clipboard to stay home with her sweet and adventurous one-year-old son, Cullen. She is so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the sisterhood of fellow moms. Motherhood has been the best roller coaster she’s ever been on and even at the most challenging times, she tries to remember to embrace the chaos and “bless this mess” mentality. Ericka loves a good conversation, coffee, empowering other women {because we can all use a little encouragement}, laughing, baking and making memories with her family.


  1. Hi Erica, we recently moved to Baton Rouge and are buying a home in the Tara subdivision. What neighborhood group would that be?

    • Hi Courtney! So I would likely join the Broadmoor/Goodwood since Tara is near Goodwood. If for any reason in the future, you wanted to join a different area because of work or making other friends, you certainly could!

  2. Can we start an adoption mom group? Just s thought- I’ve always wanted to connect with more moms that know the ins and outs of adoption!
